Spektacom Technologies Pvt. Ltd., founded by legendary Indian cricketer Anil Kumble, have entered into a partnership with the Kings XI Punjab cricket team (KXIP) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) to use Spektacom's proprietary and patent pending PowerBatTM technology.

The Spektacom PowerStickerTM will provide real-time batting analytics to KXIP players for use in their individual and team practice sessions.

The technology uses an ultra-lightweight credit card sized sticker that can be easily pasted on the back of the bat to get real time feedback on batting performance, including data on bat speed, impact location, twist, and power. It enables professional cricketers to measure, monitor, and enhance their performance continuously.

"The PowerBatTM technology enables players to bring in a completely new dimension to their match preparation and performance, by objectively measuring every shot played, in real time," said Abhishek Binaykia, Chief Product Officer at Spektacom. "We are excited to be associated with the Kings XI franchise and look forward to working with the players to further enhancing their power hitting capabilities in IPL 2020"

"The data from Spektacom's PowerBatTM technology helps our analysts and coaches maximize the outcomes from a cricketing shot, personalize player drills, and optimize batting techniques," said Satish Menon, CEO at Kings XI. "We are able to  derive great insights into how a batsman is playing different types of bowlers and bowling lengths, and use the technology to fine tune their batting skills."

Spektacom is redefining sports and re-Imagining fan engagement through innovative sensor technology. Spektacom's vision is to revolutionize the sporting experience by creating an ecosystem that engages fans, broadcasters, amateurs, coaches, and professionals through state-of-the-art smart products and technologies.

Spektacom's products will define a new paradigm for performance analysis and fan engagement.

Since the advent of the Indian Premier League, Kings XI Punjab has featured in all of the seasons. They play their home matches at IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali. The 2020 edition will feature a new captain, a new coach, new set of players and new outlook to the game. The franchise will be spearheaded by KL Rahul fondly known as Captain Punjab and the coach for the upcoming season is Spektacom founder Anil Kumble. With experienced foreign players such as Chris Gayle, Glenn Maxwell, Jimmy Neesham and promising young talent such as Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Ravi Bishnoi and Deepak Hooda at their helm.

Kings XI Punjab will certainly be a team to watch out for.
