The lab at the Lahore University of Management Sciences (Lums) will become the fifth such centre which has been approved by the game’s governing body. The National Cricket Centre in Brisbane, Loughborough University, Sri Ramachandra University in Chennai and the University of Pretoria are the other centres where players reported in international cricket are being tested.
“I want to congratulate the Pakistan Cricket Board, which worked in conjunction with Lums to fulfill the criteria required for an ICC accredited testing centre,” ICC general manager Geoff Allardice said. The facility at Lums passed through a range of criteria that included a motion analysis system with a minimum of 12 high-speed cameras capable of producing three-dimensional data.
The ICC assisted in establishing the lab by providing a full set of testing equipment and software like it did with the other accredited centres
PCB managing director Wasim Khan said the biomechanical lab will help rectify bowling actions of a Pakistani bowler at a very early stage.
