In this content collaboration with Ludimos, we’ll show you how the world of video analysis is much closer than you think.
If there’s one trend I’ve noticed over the last decade of running Cricket Yorkshire, it’s that technology is filtering down to the grassroots game.
From the upgrades of websites to live-streaming matches, club cricket is evolving in new and exciting ways.
This brings us to Ludimos; the first AI-powered cricket coaching platform, accessible to players and coaches across the globe from Doncaster to Dubai.
The sports-tech startup operates in 15 countries with the likes of Cricket Scotland and Royal Challengers Bangalore using Ludimos. They have 20,000 players on their database and are growing all the time.
‘We started Ludimos to bring professional video analysis to grassroots cricket so every player can see their own data and improve. We want to revolutionise cricket coaching and really drive player development.’
Founder & CEO Madan Rajagopal
The role of video analysis; recording training videos to improve your game is already popular but the cost for elements like ball tracking, pitchmap, the speed of delivery and biomechanics should be enormous.
You normally only see that level of detail on broadcasters like Sky Sports covering professional cricket.
Let’s dive into why it’s possible now for you at home…

For a player, cricket club or school, you can use Ludimos to manage your cricket coaching across the year.
