Spektacom technologies and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) have entered into a partnership ahead of IPL 2020. As per the deal, the Spektacom PowerSticker will provide real-time batting analytics to Kings XI players for use in their individual and team practice sessions.
The PowerBat technology uses a credit card sized sticker that can be mounted on the back of the bat, and would also provide real time batting analysis such as impact location, twist, power and swing of the bat. It is going to be very helpful for the cricketers and the team to monitor, and enhance their performance continuously.
This technology enables the players to bring in a completely new dimension to their match preparation and performance, by objectively measuring every shot played. It can be a game changer for KXIP as it would help the analysts and coaches maximise the outcomes from a cricketing shot, personalise player drills, and optimise batting techniques.
Indeed, it can be one of the unique partnerships in IPL wherein a brand is trying to redefine sports through innovative sensor technology. If it turns the tables for KXIP and tune in to their winning momentum, you never know next year this brand can associate with multiple teams as well.
