The entire set-up of LED wickets during a single match costs approximately US$ 40,000 (Rs. 25 lakh).
The LED wickets were approved in 2013 by the ICC to be used in international as well as domestic cricket matches to help the umpires in taking right decisions during run-outs, close stumping and fine touches.
An innovation in the field of cricket to enhance the zest of playing as well as watching the sport-LED Stumps and Bails or you can say LED wickets. With no utter surprise, you have seen the stumps and bails enlightened when the ball hits the wicket in the international as well as national cricket battles. These wickets infused with the concept of magnetic field and induction was a brainchild of an Australian mechanical industrial designer, Bronte EcKermann and has been created by the South Australian manufacturer Zing International.
The bails also have inbuilt sensors that can determine in just 1/1000th of a second that if the wicket has been broken.
Whenever there is positive deflection, the bails and stumps embedded with LEDs get powerful signals from the microprocessor and light-up red.
The stumps and bails are made of composite plastic with LED circuits embedded in it.
Both the stumps and bails are embedded with low voltage batteries with a microprocessor that detects when both the spigots have lost the link with the stump grooves.
