Cricket Spider Cam

Post by Jílín Shěng »

Just seen a dead ball called because the ball hit the camera. I think the batsmen should get five runs for it just as he would it he hit a helmet behind the wicket keeper.

The idea of the 5 runs is it's the fielding teams responsibility to ensure those items are not hit. The fielding side has no responsibility for the camera.

If the tv companies cannot guarantee that their cameras will not interfere with the outcome of a game then they should be banned.
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

I dont think its the responsibility of players and bowlers to take care of the camera. It's only the responsibility of the company.
