“We are a tech company working on our first product CricFlex. CricFlex is the world’s first wearable to detect illegal bowling actions in cricket. Cricket is the 2nd most popular game in the world with around 120 million players playing professionally. The biggest controversy in cricket is “”Chucking”” i.e. a bowler bowling at an arm angle greater than 15 degrees. Currently, there is no method for the on spot detection of chucking. A bowler is marked as suspected by the on field umpires through naked eye and then he has to go to a biomechanics lab for testing, and the results come out after 21 days, making the whole process a very subjective and inefficient one. So, we have come up with a low cost, state of the art, aesthetically designed wearable for the real time monitoring and analysis of bowling action in cricket. The device communicates to a smart phone using Bluetooth and a complete visual and graphical analysis is performed.”
