The Pakistan Cricket Board has struck a three-year partnership with CricHQ, the world’s best cricket scoring platform, and CricViz, the world’s leading cricket data provider.
CricHQ will be the PCB’s live scoring partner, digitising scoring from the grassroots level all the way up to Pakistan cricket’s highest tier — the First XIs of the six Cricket Associations. The PCB will be able to collect data and analyse player performance utilising match reports and statistics as a result of the cooperation.
CricHQ will also provide video automation and capture solutions for domestic matches to assist coaches and players with performance analysis.
The rights to CricViz’s query tool will be given to the PCB analysts and coaches. CricViz is widely recognised as one of the world’s leading data analytics organisations. Analysts and coaches will be taught on the programme in order to assist in the preparation of pre-match, in-match, and post-match analysis. Both collaborations are part of the PCB’s ambition to strengthen its data analytical branch to deliver cutting-edge data analysis, match plus player impacts, and other services. In terms of data analysis and player selection, these tools will aid Pakistan cricket’s modernization.
The players will benefit significantly as well, as the tools are meant to help them improve their performances while overcoming any deficiencies in technique that may occasionally creep into their game.
“We are very delighted to be partnering with the PCB as their official score source for all cricket,” said CricHQ General Manager Global Grant Elliot. We’re excited to use our technology to help develop talent and the game. It comes as New Zealand prepares to tour Pakistan following a break from internation
CricHQ is committed to growing, inventing, and utilising cutting-edge technologies. It’s apparent that the PCB intends to use digital technology to get an advantage over talent and keep in touch with all of their stakeholders by digitising players and fans.”
