Abstract: Cricket, a world renowned game has several flaws when it comes to the decisions made by a Third Umpire. Especially in crucial decisions regarding Out/Not Out; his decision has to be accurate and quick. But in few cases he fails to deliver it as he is expected to. Therefore it is essential to make use of technology to eliminate this drawback in the game. Hence in this paper we propose a Smart Third Umpire Decision Assisting System (STUDAS) to overcome this flaw using Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) as well as Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA). This system primarily aims to implement event detection and decision making algorithm so as to make the game of cricket much fairer and swifter.
