Badminton will trial line-call review technology at next month's Superseries finals, the world body said Friday, bidding to raise excitement and stamp out faulty decisions which have caused rows in the past.
Following similar moves in tennis, cricket, football and rugby, players will have two challenges per match during the December 11-15 season finale in Kuala Lumpur.
The system, using ultra-slow motion cameras, will be set up on the televised show court. Reviews of line-calls, or whether the shuttlecock has dropped in or out, will be judged by the match referee.
