Cricket team preps for World Cup with iPods

We've seen iPods used to help major league baseball players improve their swings, and medical students enhance their stethoscope skills. Now, England's Cricket team has adopted the little players as well.

Players have been reviewing bowling actions - both their own as well as their competitors' - on video iPods in preparation for big matches. Rueters describes player Liam Plunkett as being "...glued to the tiny iPod screen..." as he watches the training videos.

I imagine the practice of watching film is much more pleasant when you can do it whenever and where ever you wish.
