    Nice vid. But a far more usefull purpose for those cameras is for run outs. There should be one either side of the wicket at both ends so no more “in between frame” runouts. Seen so many now where you know in your mind that the bails were off before crossing the crase, tey it’s between frames and the batsman is home in the next frame but the bails are about 2 feet away. It has to be given not out as there is no proofe he is out, but with the super slow motion that can be eliminated. And on the point of technology, how is it that indian cricket grounds don’t have all the facilities for the referal system? With the ammount of money they have over there, hell Dohni could donate 1% of his earnings to get all that technology in place. Especially when the comm games tennis stadium was the most technoligically advanced in the world with more hawkey and other bits then you could poke a stick at.
