Updates to webhooks to capture Cricket Fielding Statistics

Cricket-specific changes have been made to the below webhooks which support the release of the cricket fielding statistics feature (detailed here):

  • Game Summary (GAME.UPDATED)
  • Live Game Score Event (LIVE_GAME.SCORE_EVENT)
  • Live Game Scorecard Updated (LIVE_GAME.SCORECARD_UPDATED)

New Position Field

A new 'position' field has been added to the Shared Statistics array in each of the LIVE_GAME.SCORE_EVENT and LIVE_GAME.SCORECARD_UPDATED webhooks.

The ‘position’ field will only ever populate in the event a Caught Dismissal occurs and the scorer indicates the participant's role involved in the catch was a Wicket Keeper. 

This allows the application of more granular fielding statistics when scoring a game within the e-Scoring Portal.

Here is a snippet of the payload:
