Cricket Australia uses weather information from UBIMET
As an outdoor sport, cricket significantly depends on the weather. As of now, Cricket Australia (CA), as the national governing body of the sport in Australia, enhances its weather risk management at all their major cricket games with the support of UBIMET’s “Weather Cockpit”. The online platform of the private weather service based in Melbourne provides high-precision meteorological information that helps CA ensure player and spectator safety as well as operational planning and scheduling of tournaments and maintenance work. Annually over 1.2 million Australians participated in cricket during 2014/15.
