Bangalore: Stump Vision (P) Ltd, in which Indian leggie Anil Kumble is one of the promoters, launched three products to cash in on the World Cup fever and to tap a huge market at the grass-roots level in this cricket-loving nation. The privately held sports software solutions company unveiled on Friday 'Scorite' that it said is an easy system for cricket scoring. "With user-friendly technology as its USP, Scorite is a tool for the scorer, the amateur statistician, the club official, the parent who wants to track a ward's progress as well as for the casual cricket follower with a penchant to score and retrieve data," its CEO Deepak Patil told reporters.

The company's Director and Anil's brother, Dinesh Kumble, said using a Windows-based application, Scorite provides for both online and offline recording of match data, be it a local league game or an international fixture. He said for this product, the company would focus on clubs and schools in India, which offered a huge market potential, and has already started the process in Karnataka of getting them on to the system. There are also plans to market the product abroad, added Patil. The company also launched CricketerOnline that's designed to be a single, on-line window unleashing talent and achievements worldwide; a global avenue with two-way access to millions of young crickets world over. "COL's members will be provided an option to update statistics, personal and club rankings, game information and interest-specific content with membership being open to clubs, schools, colleges and individual players," Patil said.

The third product that was introduced was Cricket Safari, a CDROM based product that encompasses a World Cup encyclopaedia and an interactive multimedia quiz. The products were launched by South Africa bound Indian cricketers Rahul Dravid and Javagal Srinath, and president of Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) K M Ramprasad.
