These days the 17th season of the Indian Premier League is being played in India. Lucknow Super Giants faced Delhi Capitals on Friday in IPL 2024. In this match played at Ekana Cricket in Lucknow, Delhi Capitals defeated Lucknow Super Giants by 6 wickets. During the match, DC’s chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav bowled Nicholas Pooran with a brilliant googly. During this, along with the stump, the mike attached to it was also uprooted and the match was stopped for some time.

This stump is worth lakhs.

Earlier the bowlers had also broken the stumps. Therefore, in such a situation, the question is sure to arise that what is the cost of the stumps and bails used in IPL. Some I.P.L. Players are not paid for playing a session as much as the value of the stumps used during the match. According to reports, the cost of the stumps used during the league was Rs 20 to 30 lakh. Apart from this, the price of LED bulbs is 40 to 50 thousand rupees. Two sets of stumps are used during a match. In such a situation, stumps worth approximately Rs 50 lakh are used during the match.

Bronte Ackerman’s invention

Let us tell you that LED stump and bell were invented by Bronte Ackerman of Australia. He co-founded it with his business partner David Legitwood. However, in 2013 he sold the idea to Cricket Australia during the BBL. The ICC had used these stumps and bails as an experiment in the T20 World Cup in 2013 itself. These stumps are equipped with sensors, which makes it easier for the umpire to take decisions. Apart from this, the players’ voices are also captured in the mic installed in the stump, which later becomes a topic of discussion on social media.
