The Pakistan Cricket Board has signed a three-year agreement with internationally renowned scoring platform CricHQ and world-renowned cricket data provider CricViz.
CricHQ will be the PCB’s direct scoring partner and will digitize scores from the ground up to the top eleven of Pakistan’s top cricket league – six cricket associations. The partnership will enable the PCB to collect data and analyze players’ performance using matching reports and statistics.
Additionally, CricHQ will also provide video automation and capturing solutions for domestic matches in order to help coaches and players analyze performances.
CricViz, widely regarded as one of the leading data analytics firms in the world, will give the PCB analysts and coaches the licenses to their query tool. The analysts and coaches will also be trained on the software to help in the preparation of pre-match, in-match and post-match analysis using the software.
Both partnerships are in line with the PCB’s plan to upgrade its data analytical wing to provide state-of-the-art data analysis, match plus player impacts etc. These tools will help in modernizing Pakistan cricket in terms of data analysis and selection of players.
The players are also set to make considerable gains as the tools are designed to help improve their performances while overcoming the flaws in techniques that might creep into their game from time to time.
CricHQ General Manager Global Grant Elliot: “We are very excited to be partnering with the PCB as their official scoring provider for all cricket. We look forward to using our technology to grow the talent and the game. It comes at a time when New Zealand plan to tour Pakistan after a break in international cricket.
“We at CricHQ are passionate about growing innovating and using the latest technology. It’s clear that the PCB plan on using digital technology to get the edge on talent and stay in touch with all their stakeholder by digitizing players and their fans.”
