Star Sports and BCCI have tied up for the VIVO IPL 2019 Trophy Tour with an AI powered training installation developed by Google.
The Trophy Tour that started in New Delhi on Sunday will travel across each franchisee city with Bengaluru on 22nd March, Chennai on 23rd March, Mumbai on 24th March, Kolkata on 30th March, Hyderabad on 31st March, Jaipur on 6th April and finally Chandigarh on 7th April. This will give fans an opportunity to get their hands on the coveted VIVO IPL trophy.
The Trophy Tour began in Delhi where fans experienced a new and evolved platform called the ‘AI Coach’ teaching a range of famous cricket shots and comparing their skills against the pros.
Fans had the opportunity to attempt Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s Helicopter shot, Virat Kohli’s Cover Drive, Rohit Sharma’s Pull shot, and Delhi-boy Rishabh Pant’s Switch hit shot.
Setting the perfect start to this 8-city long tour, fans were seen attempting practice shots, and then comparing that to a pre-trained video of the cricketer they selected that gave them an accurate score.
