Pakistani students create revolutionising product CricFlex
Saeed Ajmal.

Students of National University of Science and Technology (NUST) have established CricFlex, an arm sleeve that bears small motion sensors, which can measure the flex of bowling arm in real time, ESPNCricinfo reported.

CricFlex sends the data to an application on a smartphone or a computer, as soon as the bowler wearing the sleeve delivers a ball.

The group of five students that have created this product, has already published a research paper on it which was accepted by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) conference in 2015.

Moreover, the bunch of students have also registered the patent in the US.

They created the wonderful product as their university project, soon after Pakistan’s spin-wizard Saeed Ajmal got banned from bowling in international cricket for having an illegal bowling action in 2014.

The revolutionary product is likely to be used at the PCB’s established biomechanics lab at Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS).

Students want this product to be used in matches at grass root level so that they can rectify their bowling action at the beginning of their career, the product costs only $300.
