Welcome to NXG Labs Cricket Tracking Internship AI Challenge!

The advent of technology has revolutionized the sports industry. "Hawk Eye", "Ball Tracking" and "Video Analytics" are household names of cricket. Video assessment of cricketers give insights about strong and weak areas. The use cases are immense.

The aim of this challenge is to provide an AI model or algorithm for ball tracking in cricket videos. The participants will have to provide processed videos with bounding boxes for ball tracking. Optional bat tracking is a plus along with the ball.

We have provided videos for prediction and image directories for the identification of balls and other miscellaneous objects.

For the final submission format, please refer to "Submission Guidelines" otherwise your solution may be deemed invalid.


Submission Evaluation: Manual

Submission Grade Time: 24 Hrs - 36 Hrs.

The results will be declared when ALL the submissions have been graded.


NOTE: Please read the guidelines very carefully to understand the final structure of your submission file (.zip). Also, if you are using a Windows system, do not use WINRAR to zip the files, WinZip or UNIX based zip creators would be required.

The dataset is of the following structure:

  1. videos - containing videos for prediction
  2. images directory with "ball" and "miscellaneous" sub-directories for training images to help understand patterns of required objects. Additional external images may also be used for additional training.

The final submission zip must include:

  • Post-processed videos with ball tracking and optional bat tracking
  • Text file(s) containing the coordinates of the ball (and optional bat tracking) in each frame and total frame size (more details about this are provided below)
  • Training Code Directory
  • Trained Model/Algorithm
  • A Detailed report explaining your approach including the methods that didn't produce effective results (.pdf)

If you are performing only ball tracking please enclose "ball_video1.txt" for co-ordinates. For additional bat tracking provide a separate file "bat_video1.txt". The format of the files can be as follows:

Example of "ball_video1.txt"

How to make a submission?

  1. Click on "My Submission"
  2. On the next page, click on "+ New Submission"
  3. Upload your ZIP in the next page and click on "Submit for Review"

Please note:

  1. You must submit your ZIP file by uploading the ZIP in the "My Submissions" section of this challenge.
  2. Your submission will NOT be auto graded. You will be able to see your results after 24 - 48 hrs.
  3. If there is any error in the submission, your final score will be marked as 0 or a warning prompt of “Invalid Score” will be displayed.


  1. Evaluation based on Video Results, Code Execution, Methodology given in the detailed report.
  2. The solution will be graded out of 100.
  3. If the scores are tied, the person reaching the score FIRST will get the better rank.


  1. We are using automatic anti-cheat system. Our system flags submission which have low trust scores. Manually modifying your submission CSV (via comparison of any form etc.), using image comparison techniques (pixel matching, file size matching etc,), in any form, can lead to your disqualification without any notice.
  2. The submission should be in a proper format as described by "Submission Guidelines".
  3. Late submission will not be accepted beyond provided deadline (Indian Standard Time).
  4. Confidentiality should be strictly maintained.


  1. Participants will be invited for an interview based on score.
  2. The participants with a successful submission will get a certificate of participation.
  3. Top 3 participants will receive a permanent place in Dockship's "Hall of Fame".
