Robin Martin-Jenkins appeals for an LBW - decisions like this have been made easier with the use of Hawk-Eye

Marylebone Cricket Club will be hosting a unique lecture on the fascinating subject of Hawk-Eye technology on Tuesday May 25th in the Thomas Lord Suite at Lord’s.

The lecture will be given by Paul Hawkins, the inventor of Hawk-Eye, which is the ball-tracking technology used by cricket broadcasters for LBW decisions.

Involving the audience and asking them to judge certain LBW decisions, Dr Hawkins will give an interactive explanation of how the system works, discuss its accuracy and seek to dispel some of the myths surrounding the technology.

The lecture will commence at 7pm and after approximately 45 minutes there will be a 15-minute interval. After the interval a question-and-answer session, with an invited panel of special guests, will begin.

BBC Test Match Special's Jonathan Agnew will chair the panel made up of former England cricketer Geoffrey Boycott, Test umpire Billy Bowden and Hawk-Eye inventor Paul Hawkins.
