Int'l Cricket Council Aims To Improve TV Umpire Technology With Officiating Replay System
Published January 3, 2014
The Int'l Cricket Council "is testing a new review system for TV umpires that aims to improve the accuracy and reduce the time taken to reach their decisions," according to the AP. The Officiating Replay System, developed by Hawk-Eye, "is being assessed by former elite panel umpire Simon Taufel, who is acting as a shadow umpire on the ICC’s behalf in the ongoing Pakistan vs. Sri Lanka test match." Without influencing the decision making of TV umpire Sundaram Ravi, who has just one monitor and one camera angle of the onfield action at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Taufel "is able to view the direct feeds from all 16 cameras at the ground on two giant screens." Taufel said, "Umpiring is all about giving the players the best service, the best umpiring and best decisions possible (and) this trial fits into that theory" (AP, 1/2).
