Decision making is crucial in any part of the game to ensure fairness among the teams. An unfair decision due to human error may change the result of the game. Cricket is the game which is most worshiped after the game of soccer. This paper introduces the concept of automating run out decisions given by the third umpire, which is achieved through various image processing techniques and algorithms like Speeded Up Robust Features, absolute difference algorithm, edge detection etc. We work on the frame in which the bails have first deflected. Popping crease position and leg/bat position of the batsman in the selected frame is compared to make a decision on run out. Implementation of the system shows better accuracy than human decision and also improves the quality of decision making process. © Research India Publications.
