David Warner to use bat sensor to tackle opposition bowlers

Vastavam web: Australian opener David Warner is meticulously preparing for the tougher battles ahead in the World Cup by using a new device on his bat – a sensor that stores important data like back lift angle and maximum bat speed. The International Cricket Council had approved the usage of bat sensor back in 2017 but save the Australian batsmen, not many have used it over the past two years.

A Bengaluru based company named ‘Smart Cricket’ has introduced its version of sensor chip device ‘Bat Sense’ which Warner has been using to collate data to counter the likes of Jasprit Bumrah. The sensor chip is fixed on the top of bat handle. Till the time batsman is batting, the data generated on the chip gets stored in a mobile app through ‘cloud storage’. Warner’s bat sensor has revealed some interesting insights about how he is doing his homework against Bumrah.
