The new technology for batting practice is being used in the training sessions of Australia and England to prepare for the Ashes.

The main idea for this is to make it more realistic by having a video of a bowler (eg. Warne, J Pattinson etc.) bowling to you and a bowling machine is behind the video which shoots the ball out when the bowler had bowled.

Ricky Ponting faced the new tech. and nearly had his head taken off thanks to a glitch in the technology.

What are your thoughts on it??

Hard to say without seeing it in action. Do you have a link to a clip of this in use?

Been in baseball for an easy 10 years. I've trained both with and without, never noticed a difference

Yeh mate was a few years back now. It was difficult to get used as as the picture and ball release was often miss timed. Only advantage I found was finding it helpful adapting to left handed pitchers. The speed and angle was very similar but I guess the video pitcher allowed me to find it easier gettin used to.

Other then that I didn't find it made any real improvement to my game. Ball machines are always predictive regardless of how you use it.
