ICC invests in illegal actions' detection

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has entered the second phase of an agreement with a consortium of high profile Australian cricket, sports science and sports engineering institutions to develop a wearable technology to assess the legality of bowling actions in match and training conditions.

ICC is now working with experts to produce a process capable of measuring bowlers’ actions in a match environment. Known as inertial sensors, they employ similar technology to that used in iPads, mobile phones and car crash impact detection systems.

The project is being managed on behalf of the ICC by Praxis Sport Science Pty Ltd headed up by Marc Portus.
