Mr journalist News , New Delhi IPL 2024 Smart Replay System: Now only a few hours are left for the start of IPL 2024. The opening match of this tournament is to be played between defending champion Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore.

A big news has come out before the start of the tournament. This time smart replay system is also going to be used in IPL. Let us know what this system is, how it works and who will benefit from it?

What is 'Smart Replay System'?

'Smart Replay System' will be introduced in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) to bring speed and accuracy in decisions. According to ESPN Cricinfo, the TV umpire will get direct input from two operators of the 'Hawk Eye' system who will sit in the same room with him and will be assisted by images taken from eight high-speed cameras installed on the field. 

Within this new system, the role of the TV broadcast director, who has been working to exchange information between the umpire and Hawk-Eye operators, will not be necessary. 

It will be easier for the umpires 

The new system will provide TV umpires with the opportunity to analyze more photographs than before and will also broadcast their interactions with Hawk Eye operators live so that viewers can clearly understand the process behind decisions. 

This system will help the umpire to see more and clearer photos from different angles so that he will be able to make accurate decisions on catches near the boundary rope, caught behind, LBW, stumping. 

15 umpires will be used 

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) recently organized a two-day workshop for selected umpires. With this, about 15 umpires including Indian and foreign umpires will use the smart replay system in this IPL. A similar referral system was used by the England and Wales Cricket Board in 'The Hundred' competition.
