The modern-day technology has touched the premises of cricket in the recent past. This has made the game easier for the fans to watch, umpires to officiate, and players to play. Recently, Kookaburra, the Australian based sports company has given the idea of smart cricket balls.
The balls embedded with microchips will be able to measure 3 kinds of speed. The speed of the ball at release point, pre-bounce, and after bounce will be measured more accurately than ever. The revolutions on the ball produced by the spinners will also be recorded.
This technology will make life easier for the match officials as well. Cricket Australia has hinted that these smart balls might be used for the first time in the upcoming Big Bash Season.
The research on these smart balls started 3 years ago in the Kookaburra’s Melbourne-based factory. After 3 years of keen research and hardwork, the company is now ready to lend the cricket fans with this amazing masterpiece.
Soon these balls will be launched in the top-flight competitions in the International cricket. This unprecedent research-work is highly appreciated by the cricket fans and they are hoping for the successful launch of it.
