The tenth season of the Indian Premier League will see a new innovation in the tournament. Much of it has been followed as per the Big Bash League way, as there will be cameras installed at the top of the helmet.
This will be the first time when an innovation of such kind will be implemented in the Indian Premier League, a league which tries to improve with every season.
The camera will be stuck on the peak of the helmet. The idea is to get the viewers as close as possible to the action on the field.
The IPL teams have been requested to provide the BCCI with details of the helmets so that fabric shrouds can be produced in each IPL team’s color.
The entire unit, including camera and battery pack, will weigh less than 100g and the weight will be evenly distributed front-to-back on the helmet.
This IPL may also see some changes due to elections. The
Delhi Daredevils’ home tie versus Mumbai Indians is on April 22, and it clashes
with the Delhi municipal elections. IPL organizers are discussing the issue
with the Delhi police. The match n all probability will be shifted to Mumbai on May 6th.
