WHAT MORE YOU GET

LIVE SCORING

The BATFAST experience combines competition with entertainment. Batsman will hit balls at up to five different targets. These targets are strategically placed inside the net lanes to replicate the cricket gaps in a field. For instance, the gaps between point and cover, cover and mid-off, mid-off and mid on and so on. Based on your expertise, these targets differ. The ways to get out are caught behind, stumped, bowled or lbw, with the spectators using the live camera feed as a mechanism to make umpiring decisions, just like the DRS system.

INSTANT REPLAY

Our high frames per second cameras are strategically positioned to allow to you watch instant replays, making you feel like an international batsman in the middle of a full house stadium of spectators. Moreover, up to 6 cameras ensure that we do not miss any angle whilst reliving your experience. These can later be edited to form a small innings highlight reel in order to be shared with friends and family. We also provide the added feature of live broadcasting onto social media which allows your event to be shared online instantaneously.

COMMENTARY/SLEDGING

The BATFAST experience is designed to provide the batsman with the feel of an international cricket match.

I was quite overwhelmed by the whole experience. The simulation had some element of adrenaline rush in it. I felt as if I was in a stadium and the crowd was cheering me on. After playing once I wanted to keep playing. Excellent concept and would love to play again
