KKR spinner Sunil Narine was reported of suspect action by umpires in Saturday’s game against Kings XI Punjab in IPL, igniting debates if such issues need immediate on-field action. Former BCCI Treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry suggests the use of AI in the broadcast feed to know the angle of extension of bowling arm in real-time for every delivery. The balance between on-ground and the third umpire for greater consistency of accurate decisions is also needed.
