The first ever two-day BCCI Workshop for Computer Scoring, was held on July 9 and 10, 2005 at Bangalore. 42 scorers consisting of two from each cricket association who are on the BCCI panel were invited to attend by the BCCI. The ACSSI conceptualised this workshop, each scorer was provided a computer and asked to score live, for an actual match. The Workshop was inaugurated by former Aussie great, Greg Chappell. Test cricketer Anil Kumble came in for the closing ceremony.
No results were declared by the BCCI, but the results were recorded in the register of the BCCI for appointment of computer scoring assignments.
We must put on record that barring the first BCCI course, all the other courses, examinations, seminars and workshop, the BCCI treated the lecturers and convener extremely well. They travelled by air, stayed at 5-star hotels, were provided with special transport, and finally were given remuneration for their services while a generous purse was provided to the ACSSI for their services.
From 2008 to 2012 the BCCI has issued Scorer Uniforms with the official BCCI Scorer Logo. From 2012 onwards, besides the T-shirt a track trouser, a kit bag and blazer have also been given.
