RCB will also use AI technology to spot cricket talent: Hesson
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) Director of Cricket Mike Hesson on Thursday said that they will use ‘Artificial Intelligence’ (AI) to scout for talent from across the country for their women’s team. The team management will also take the help of AI (Artificial Intelligence) apart from sending ‘scouts’ to find the brightest talent.
“We have an ‘Artificial Intelligence’ system and we think that apart from sending regular ‘scouts’, we will also get help from AI,” Hesson told a press conference ahead of the Women’s Premier League. There are so many talents in the whole country from which we will shortlist them and bring them to the camp and see them in some special tournaments. Women’s team head coach Ben Sauer made it clear that big players including Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Heather Knight and Dane Van Niekerk will be ‘rotated’ during the upcoming Women’s Premier League (WPL) starting on Saturday. .
Apart from these big four cricketers, RCB has also roped in New Zealand legend Sophie Devine and WBBL star Erin Burns. Sawyer admitted that he has plenty of options to play in the match. When asked who would be his top four overseas players, Sawyer, the current coach of the New Zealand women’s team, did not give a straight answer.
“All six players will play a role. We will play four matches in the first six days. We will field different players against different teams and I am fortunate that we have a range of players. Sawyer said, “Don’t expect us to play the same four players throughout the tournament.” We have players with some great talent. I am sure you will see all the six players playing in the tournament.
