Chaudhry, while retweeting Alam’s post, stated that it should not be a problem for ball makers in Sialkot, adding “let’s do a joint project with technical universities and create our own smart cricket ball.”

It calculates the ball’s speed in 3 stages — release, pre-bounce, and post-bounce — which helps in the evaluation of the bowlers’ performance, with the players able to see the results on their smartwatches.
