    hi-motion cameras and runouts

    to me it seems odd that with the introduction of the new super high motion cameras wouldnt it be wise for the icc to use them in run out situations. the cameras have 1000 frames a second wheras the ones they use only have 48. it annoys me when the batsman gets the benifit of the doubt because in the tight runouts it is impossible to tell if hes out. the icc needs to pull their finger out and implement this change to make the game better.


    any thoughts?

    Good point, it is a bit annoying the amount of times the ball wicket is broken between frames.

    Meh it's like goal line technology in football, a solution to a problem that's not that great really.

    Though i wouldn't mind seeing more hi motion cameras in general as they provide brilliant pictures.

    but its not the same as goal line technology because their is a debate in football as to wheteher they should implement it or not but the technology is already being used in cricket so why not go for the best .

    You do notice these cameras cost a huge amount of money to buy, hence Channel Nine only have one I believe.

    And I$C$C = multi-millionaires, why don't they use the money on something useful like a proper decision-making system instead of throwing it at black-holes?

    2 hi-motion cameras for each Test would be absolutely perfect, along with everything else I've suggested before.

    I believe that more and more hi motion cameras are being used throughout international cricket, so its a possibility in the near future that they will be used for third umpire decisions.

    Yeah I mentioned something along these lines a while ago; you always see super slow motion images of something stupid, like Andrew Symonds' dreadlocks as he comes into bowl, but you never see it focussed on something useful.

    Have to disagree with you there. In the CB series we saw a few run outs or stumping chances that had to be given not out, as one frame would show the batsman as out of the crease, with the bails on, while the next would show him in the crease, with the bails off. If you had one of these better cameras, you could presumably make a definitive call on it.

    Wouldn't you want 4? that would get pretty expensive, and you need to have the people who know how to use them there as well.

    It would be good to have though.

    Shouldn't be IMO. The ICC can afford to move them from place to place, can't they? We never have more than 3-4 matches going on at the same time anyway.
