Video search today uses the metadata surrounding the video, ignoring its semantic content. Over the years, a lot of research has gone into indexing and browsing of sports video content. In this paper, the authors present a novel approach for classification of events in cricket videos and thus, summarize its visual content. The proposed method segments a cricket video into shots and identifies the visual content in them. Using sequential pattern mining and support vector machine, they classify the sequence of shots into four events, namely RUN, FOUR, SIX and OUT.
