The popularity and potential market of cricket field lighting

Cricket sports, England’s national summer sport, which is now played throughout the world, particularly in Australia, India, Pakistan, the West Indies, and the British Isles.

So more and more countries are beginning to devote themselves to the development of cricket court. It is a crucial step to find a good lighting supplier. Due to the world trend of energy saving and emission reduction, more contractors hope to use LED lamps to replace traditional halogen lamps for their cricket court lighting. Good cricket lighting is important for local sport as it provides more opportunities to train and play, and assists to maximise the use of facilities.

MECREE is committed to providing high-quality lighting solutions for a range of sports lighting especially cricket stadium lights.

Requirement of Cricket Ground Lighting

It is very high requirements for the cricket lighting ground. The required lux level depends on different types of cricket ground. Generally, if the cricket court will host international competitions, the illuminance value will be higher according to the cricket lighting compatibility guide.

1.Lux Level (Brightness) Requirement

For most of practice and Non-televised Matches cricket stadiums, we need about 250 to 350 lux, which is sufficient for players to have mild competition among the team members. The professional matches require 500 to 750 lux. The brightness is higher because the movement is more intense. High-intensity lighting can stimulate the vitality of cricket players, thereby improving their performance. For the cricket stadium holding international broadcasting competitions, it requires the highest standard of about 1500 to 2500 lux. Because it provides clearer environment for taking photo and video shooting.


Cricket Court Lighting Standard for Non-televised Matches

* Values of illuminance measured at the time of commissioning an installation (i.e. “day one”) should be greater than the maintained illuminance values shown above – see maintenance clause. A nominal maintenance factor of 0.8 is recommended, the initial values will therefore be 1.25 times the values shown in the tables.

*If future upgrading to a level suitable for television broadcasting is intended or likely; the selection of light sources with CRI Ra≥90 should be considered.

*GR should be ≤40 for each batsman in direction of view towards the opposite wicket.
