New cricket helmet cam gives scary view of 145km/h pace thunderbolts in home comfort

Sydney, Mon, 10 Dec 2012 ANI

Sydney, Dec 10(ANI): Brisbane Heat star Shane Watson became the first batsman to wear a camera in his helmet, as the future of cricket watching arrived on Sunday with a thrilling helmet-cam footage transporting Big Bash League viewers from their lounge chairs to the Gabba batting crease.

When Watson thumped Hobart's quick Doug Bollinger for two big sixes, viewers felt like they were standing in the shoes of the Australian batsman and blasting the ball into the crowd, News.com.au reports.

For a few chest-thumping seconds, it was like you had a 145km/h pace thunderbolt coming at you, but in the comfort of your lounge room, the paper added.

There seems no reason why the terrific innovation, later used on Hurricanes' batsman Travis Birt, could not be used in all forms of cricket and it was a timely pick-me-up for the Big Bash after a weekend of poor crowd numbers, the paper said. (ANI)
