This can be done with a video camera and a Raspberry Pi computer.
Tracking an object is common with video. Most any camera will have 1000 x 1000 sensors.
How fast is a cricket ball? Computers watch base ball and hockey and foot ball (what ever type you like).

Thank you for your reply.
I have thought about this thing using a camera and computer vision we can achieve this. Raspberry pi camera is not enough for it we need a good quality camera. but the main two limitations are the installation of the camera outside of the field. The second cost will be high cause camera plus + computer. That is why I was looking for an alternative.
