Mumbai:With a view to have its own website up, running and up-to-date, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to conduct a two-day course on computer scoring for the scorers of all its affiliated units who take part in the Ranji Trophy.

The course is to be conducted by the Association of Cricket Scorers of India at Bangalore on July 9 and 10, according to Board sources.

"We are going to conduct the two-day course at Bangalore next month and two scorers from each association taking part in the Ranji Trophy have been invited for the sessions. Till now we have received the names of 40 scorers and almost all associations have been covered," the sources said.

"The approved software for the purpose has been prepared by Stumpvision, belonging to Anil Kumble's brother Dinesh", they said.

"Obviously the aim is to start scoring all the domestic games on computer to update our proposed website which is planned to go on-line before the start of the next season. The idea is to put up the scores and updates of all the matches on a daily basis," the sources added.

The BCCI's working committee has to approve the budget for establishing and running the website, they added.

BCCI is among the few Indian sports bodies who do not have their own website as yet.

The Indian Olympic Association, the All India Football Federation, the All India Tennis Association and other sports federations have their own websites with some websites more active and upto date than others.
