Fawad Chaudhry confident about producing ‘smart cricket balls’ locally


Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry is confident about producing ‘smart cricket balls’ in Pakistan.

Chaudhry believes that the Sialkot-based manufacturers, famous for producing finest-quality sports goods, are more than capable of producing such a cricket ball locally.

It must be noted that a partnership between Kookaburra Sports and SportCor, which takes a regular Kookaburra cricket ball and embeds a SportCor electronic chip inside the core of the ball, led to the production of Kookaburra SmartBall back in August 2019. Although, it is still in the testing phase and not used for international cricket matches.
