Bharat Arun, the bowling coach of the Indian Cricket Team, thinks that GPS trackers are the reason behind why India’s pace attack is successful. Bharat is often credited as the asset behind India’s finest fast-bowling line-up. Players like Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, and Mohammad Shami at present make the perfect pacers group under him.
He thinks that the tracker record players data and movement on the field which can later be used to analyze workload in the training sessions.

“When we talk about workload management, we are looking at the number of overs a bowler has bowled. But then a bowler can over-exert himself in a game and that is not under your control. So we use the GPS tracker to monitor all his movements on the field,” he was quoted as saying by The Times of India.
“For example, a bowler runs around 20 km on the field. And the tracker gives us a lot of data and information about the bowler concerned. By analyzing this data, you can manage the workload at training sessions. Basically, you need to find the right balance. And the Indian bowlers have managed to do that so far,” he said. “This is the reason why we are successful as a bowling unit and the bowlers can bowl at 140 mph regularly,” he added.
