Calcutta: If everything goes according to plan, the Bengal Ranji Trophy team will go hi-tech next season.
S. Ramakrishnan, who has been working with the National Cricket Academy (NCA) as computer-analyst, is likely to be roped in by the CAB.
Ramakrishnan informed The Telegraph that he works with two digital cameras and records batting and bowling action which is later analysed in the computer.
He has already worked with MRF Pace Academy as well as in all zonal branches of the NCA. “There is no need for me to be there all the time. The software is very user-friendly and any coach can use it.”
The CAB is quite enthusiastic about Ramakrishnan. “It’s definitely a good option and we are seriously thinking about it,” a top official said.
Showcause on cards
Meanwhile, the CAB is likely to showcause former secretary Debdas Banerjee for “making wrong allegations against CAB on different issues” in his book Cricketer Antarale.
It will be the first time in the history of the association that a former secretary will be show-caused, if the decision is ratified in the working committee meeting on May 26.
An inquiry committee — comprising U.N. Banerjee, Tushar Sarkar and Biswaroop Dey — had scrutinised the book and submitted its report.
