PV/Match has recently been trialed during the national Natwest T20 Under 19 competition. The system set up in Staffordshire was hosted by J&G Meakins, one of the only amateur clubs in the UK to have access to full floodlights.
The game between North Staffordshire & South Cheshire Academy v Lancashire Academy was well supported by the local community who came out in force to see day-night cricket debut at Ivy House Rd. The PV cameras were mounted on the sight screens at both ends of the ground and automatically captured all the game highlights, whilst also acting as a scoring mechanism throughout the game.
The match recorded live on PVM was met with open arms “To have the ability to go back and review key moments during a live game at this level provides a fantastic opportunity for players to learn quicker and also have fun” Pete Wilshaw – Staffordshire CCC captain
“Its been great having the system at the ground everyone is talking about it, the automatic highlights onto our Twitter and Facebook feeds have really helped promote the club” James Menzies – J&G Meakins CC Chairman.
“Using the PV/ONE system during training and now having a cross over into live games is such a powerful tool, a real game changer” Sam Haines – Cricket Cave Director of cricket.
NSSCCL went on to win the game in 14.5 overs chasing down Lancashires 121 with this excellent ramp shot by Sam Moores to win it.
