Pitchero, has partnered with the ECB’s Play-Cricket.com site to provide cricket clubs access to live, real-time data from their Pitchero website.

Paul Bedford, Head of Non First Class Cricket at the ECB, commented: “We are delighted to be working with Pitchero. The integration of the Play-Cricket.com results into the club websites will give clubs and leagues the capability and convenience to be able to access everything in one place."
“As Pitchero is used by a significant proportion of the cricket community, we feel the partnership is valuable and will strengthen our relationship with clubs and leagues,”
Mark Fletcher, CEO of Pitchero, added: “This is an exciting opportunity for Pitchero and our 1,400 cricket clubs."
“The relationship will not only benefit the cricket clubs using Pitchero but also means we can continue to deliver valuable participation and player frequency data to the ECB."
