England’s Cricket team practicing with iPods

England’s cricket team are using video iPods to better prepare for the World Cup in the Caribbean. The coaching staff have begun loading the players with bowling actions so they can analyse both their own techniques and those of their opposition.

England bowler Liam Plunkett has been glued to the tiny iPod screen as he tries to learn some tips ahead of their opening Group C clash with New Zealand on Friday.

According to Reuters UK, “the dull Caribbean wickets mean England’s usual swing and seam attack must come up with new ways of getting batsmen out, such as bowling slower balls and off-cutters.”

And as an American, I have absolutely no idea what most of those terms mean.
