Former India captain and spin legend Anil Kumble lauded the ICC for its crackdown on bowlers with suspect action. Anil Kumble is pretty happy with the pro-active approach from the ICC that has resulted in bringing down the number of bowlers with suspect action in the recent past.

Kumble, who has a staggering 619 wickets in Test cricket, is quite impressed for not hearing the issues about suspect bowling action over the past two years. He praised ICC for their no nonsense approach towards suspect actions.. 

 “A fair bit (has been done) from the ICC perspective in terms of looking at the suspected actions and making sure that the world cricket gets rid of that. “Over the last two years, you don’t hear too many issues (about suspect bowling action) coming up. I think overall ICC has done a great job in controlling that (issue),” Kumble said at an event.

Back long, the ICC was receiving a lot of criticism from players. While some greats, like Michael Holding, felt it was not doing enough to curb it, the ones who were in the suspect bowling action net, like Mohammed Hafeez, too, reportedly hit out at the apex body.

At technology startup Spektacom Technologies, Microsoft Corporation and broadcast partner Star India, it has been announced to launch a tracking device for a batting performance called Power Bat. 

Power Bat can deliver coaches, players, commentators, fans, viewers with a unique way to engage with the sport and help improve their game. This power bat can also lead to tackle suspect bowling action. It was introduced in Tamil Nadu Premier League

Along with Kumble, Former India players V V S Laxman, Abhinav Mukund, Robin Uthappa and ex-West Indies pacer Ian Bishop also spoke about how this tool could be useful for budding cricketers.
