The Spektacom technology is used to analyse bat speed, power and whether the ball hit the sweet spot of the bat or not. The technology is owned by Anil Kumble. It can be operated with the use of sensor-based stickers. Once the player applies the sticker on the bat, the bat modifies into a ‘smart bat’. Spektacom is all set to be used during the third edition of Tamil Nadu Premier League 2018.

Talking on the same Kumble said: “I am thankful to TNPL for giving Spektacom an opportunity to debut in a tournament that will be viewed by millions. It is a sensor-based technology which operates with a smart sticker. Once you put the sticker on the bat, it becomes a smart bat.”

Kumble also mentioned about the importance of the tournament as it has produced players like Washington Sundar and T Natarajan: ”TNPL is a great platform for youngsters. Washington Sundar’s consistent performances in the TNPL fast-tracked him into the IPL and into the Indian team. Similarly, with T Natarajan last year when he came out of the blue and nobody knew who he was.”
