If you think you could face Dale Steyn or Vernon Philander without hearing the awful crack of a ball against your stumps, then don’t miss your turn in the Standard Bank Cricket Batting Simulator, where a one-of-a-kind cricket simulator will let you face some of your heroes from the Proteas, albeit virtually.
Come and see if you’ve got what it takes to bat against SA’s finest. Stand ready at the crease as one of the Proteas’ bowlers starts his run-up on the giant video screen. Keep a firm grip on your bat because as the virtual bowler bowls, a real ball will shoot out of the screen. Take your best shot and then check the view of the field on the screen; the simulator’s virtual shot-tracking technology shows the result of every shot, pinpointing where the ball would have gone if you were on a real field, and how many runs you would have scored.
The simulator can be adjusted to suit any age or skill set, so everyone in the family can take a crack at it.
