The partnership will bring great deals for the Kings XI Punjab as they will get real-time batting analytics which can be used in their practice sessions.
Spektacom provides a PowerBatTM technology will allow the players to get real-time feedback on their individual batting performance, impact location, bat speed data, power and twist. This will require only an ultra-lightweight credit card-sized thin sticker which will be pasted behind the bat to measure all the required mentioned things. This will be a great opportunity for the player to measure and monitor their performance on a regular basis.
The technology of PowerBatTM will allow the players to enhance their batting performance and bring a completely new dimension to their upcoming match preparations. According to Abhishek Binyakia who is the chief product officer at Spektacom believes that the technology would literally measure each and every shot that will be played. He is quite excited and looks forward to servicing the player of KXIP. This technology will obviously help the coaches and analysts a lot as they can figure out and make the most out of it during practice sessions. The CEO of KXIP Satish Menon explained that all kinds of cricketing shots, player drills and optimizing batting techniques can also be analyzed. This great technology would help to understand how a batsman plays different bowlers or even different lengths and this method would allow the batsman to enhance his skills.
