Fawad Chaudhry Urges Sialkot to Make Pakistan’s Own Smart Cricket Balls

Minister for Science and Technology, Fawad Chaudhry, has pitched the idea of smart cricket balls to the local sports industry of Sialkot. The Federal Minister said this in response to a tweet shared by the renowned host, Fakhr-e-Alam.

Fakhr-e-Alam shared footage from Kookaburra, an Australian sports equipment company, using technology to revolutionize the game of cricket. Kookaburra has developed a high-tech microchip that is placed inside a traditional cricket ball for gathering accurate playing data.

Here’s the video:

Quoting Fakhr-e-Alam’s tweet, Fawad Chaudhry urged the local sports manufacturers to replicate the idea and develop made in Pakistan smart balls.

He also said that the sports companies from Sialkot should partner with engineering and technology universities for the project. The idea is indeed a good one considering Sialkot is already exporting world-class sports equipment to all parts of the world.

A number of leading sports brands get their goods manufactured in the sports industrial hub of Pakistan and if the country can start producing smart cricket balls, it will help young cricketers develop their game and exports would also rise.

  • Pakistan is a country where Murder of Merit is common. Fawad Chaudhary has no background in Science and he is our Science Minister. Shame on Imran Khan who has selected him to lead Scientific projects in Pakistan. People with Real Scientific background have left Pakistan or mostly are jobless, whereas Jaahil Ministers are taking over the most respectable posts. Boycott all of these ministers. They are the real reason why Pakistan is not progressing. Merit based Pakistan is the only future for us.

    • You are absolutely right but he is performing and at least he is trying.
      Shame on imran khan? Why just on imran khan? Shame on imran khan and and all previous governments in the last 70 years.
      We are a developing country. I hope the day comes when all ministries are given based on merit.But realistically speaking, as of now we just need a strong,stable and honest person who has control over the govt. We lack the basic foundations for a merit based govt, every thing needs to progress step-by-step.

      • Your statement is full of rationales to defend Imran Khan and then the same mantra of the last 70 years. I don’t care about the past. Imran Khan has promised to bring change and we voted for him. So where is the Merit that Imran Khan has promised?. Please open your eyes. What is wrong is wrong. We don’t need a strong man. We need a strong system. Also remember that hiring incompetent people is the biggest dishonest that anyone can do. Corruption has many forms. Anyway the 3rd world will not understand my statements.

        • You are just too optimistic and I think your expectations were too high of Imran khan .I just said that in order to achieve a strong system some steps need to be taken . At least their minister are performing .You should criticize the govt where they deserve instead of just bashing them in every single thing. How do you plan to establish a strong system? If you think that bringing change is so easy then why don’t you do it yourself then?
          Stop living in your bubble world that floats around and pops in the end.
