NV Play Pro Cricket Scorer v5.0.0 Release Notes (3 Mar 2022)

General Scoring

  • Changed ‘batsman/batsmen’ to ‘batter/batters’ throughout the NV Play Cricket platform, including Desktop client (including database and data exports), Match Centres, Match Portals, and Web Admin (#9269)
  • Changed ‘LC/Chinaman’ to LLB/Left-Arm Leg Break throughout the NV Play Cricket platform, and for consistency with RLB and ROB also changed SLA/Slow Left Arm to LOB/Left-Arm Off Break (#8446)
  • Changed the Over Rate dialog box from Target Rate and Actual Rate to a simple free text or click-up/click-down box to enter the actual value as 0 or +/- 1, 2, 3, etc, that will start at N/A with no Over Rate output until updated (#6478)
  • Added a Tools -> Configuration -> Scoring option to Order fielders by shirt number in Bowler and Fielding dropdowns and panels (#9711)

  • Added support via Scoring -> Scorecard/Result Entry Only for scorecard only matches and results to be entered, rather than requiring ball-by-ball data, and also for a match to be a mixture of both, i.e., one innings scorecard-only and the other innings ball-by-ball (#1352 & #9468)
  • Added support to Player Averages, Competition Centres, Stats Wizards, etc for scorecard only matches and innings, as some details may not be available depending on what is entered into the scorecard only innings/match (#2454)
  • Added a keyboard shortcut, ‘m’, to open the Broadcast Message dialog when more than one user is connected to the Match Cloud, for sending messages to other users (#9433)
  • Added a Configuration -> Scoring option (off by default) to show wickets in red in This Over, Ball by Ball, and Scorecard (batter and bowler analysis) to better distinguish these from wides (#9423)

  • Prevented the use of “@mentions” in automated and manual Tweets, including via the Tweet Content function, to avoid breaching Twitter’s anti-spam regulations, but retaining these for players in milestone tweets when they are configured (#9696)

  • Fixed issue where the current bowler’s figures would not update on the Play Control panel, after finding the root cause related to the prior use and/or editing of a sub-Fielder (#8810)
  • Fixed issue where a batsman selected to return for their second bat in the innings, after a previously Retired Not Out batsman had returned and been dismissed, would be shown as next in the batting order rather than the Striker, who would be the original batsman in that batting order number (#9420)
  • Fixed issue where the list of teams did not filter to those associated with a selected Club under Tools -> Edit Database -> Teams when logged-in as an Administrator (#9531)
  • Fixed issue where sometimes the Hawk-Eye Ball Arrival points would not be included in CSV exports from Match or Multi Match Stats Wizards (#8969)
  • Fixed issue where sometimes a completed over would show as “X.6” for the bowler, and the ‘incomplete’ over would make Overs Remaining display one more than the correct number (#9685)


Replay Screen/Scoreboard

  • On Large -> Main, changed the display of Over Rate from rotating in-between Overs to showing below the clock (next to Cut Off, if present) when it is set, and in green if >0 or LVL and in red if <0 (#3956)
  • Changed the Overlay button to Overlay (Mixing Desk) and added a tooltip explaining that this requires outputting to a mixing desk to add video to the Overlay inset (#9626)
  • Fixed issue where the score would not show the number of wickets after a Retired Not Out and a Bat Twice in the same innings when 9 wickets down (#9350)


Match Centre/Portal

  • Added support for displaying scorecard only innings/matches, e.g., as there is no ball-by-ball data only the Scorecard tab can be shown, so there are no Summary, Ball by Ball, Stats, or Video tabs, etc (#6487)
  • A dismissed batter will now remain on the Summary tab, in opaque, until the new batter is confirmed, for consistency with the scoreboard option. This has also been implemented on Live Streaming overlays (#5001)



  • Updated third party Media Components to version 2.6.1, which enables Blackmagic Desktop Video version 12.2 to be supported, so this is now the recommended Desktop Video version if not already installed (#8620)

  • Added support for ignoring an invalid audio track or when there is no audio on the video source (#8346)
  • Added additional logging for IP Camera discovery/connections and improved handling of discovery failure if any options are found (#8975)
  • Disabled the Hardware Accelerated Video Decoding by default, as a temporary workaround to some ball clips sometimes not playing back for some users, until a permanent fix is available in the next Media Components release (#9732)


Live Streaming

  • Added support for live streaming to multiple platforms simultaneously, via a new Add new Live Stream Configuration option, with individual watermarks, resolutions & bitrates, and enable/disable overlays per stream (#9429)

  • Added links to Multi-Cam Replay Settings from the Video Display -> Settings cog menu and an Enable Replays button, as these are disabled by default, on the video input windows (#9395)
  • Improved the handling of NVIDIA’s maximum concurrent encoding limit (3) when user has 4 video inputs, including new Intel (hardware) encoding if Encoding Session unavailable configuration options, encoder type added to Live Video Statistics tool tips, etc (#9004)
  • Ensured that all replays from the Multi-Cam Video Display replay button respect the Show Branding Pre-Roll setting (#9399)
  • Fixed issue where the ball speeds from the previous over would display after it had ended, thus showing these below the new bowler for the next over (#8827)
