The cricket world always amazed us with their day-to-day revolutions, often embedding advanced technologies and hence changing the whole view of the game. This time, Indian cricket legend Anil Kumble's start-up company Spektacom has shaken hands with the tech giant Microsoft to gift a new technology to all cricket players and fanatics. Being the brainchild of the former Indian batsman Anil Kumble who has also been trained as an engineer; proposed the concept of 'Power Bat' to Satya Nadella (CEO of Microsoft) in 2017 and it took less than a year to convert the concept into reality. The idea is to record the data of shots and batting techniques, and analyse it using Microsoft’s Azure Sphere by broadcasters as well as players to uplift the stature of playing and displaying the game at big stages. The company has tried out the 'Power Bat' during the Tamil Nadu Premier League, and it took only a few seconds to analyse and represent the data on the screen. The chip does not affect the weight of the bat and hence unobtrusive to use. With this technology, players are expecting a significant change in their game as they can now profoundly understand the playing strategies of their opponents.
