HYDERABAD: Chief national badminton team coach Pullela Gopichand is now donning a new hat – that of a co-founder of Hyderabad-based Matchday.ai, which developed a sport analytics platform using artificial intelligence.

Harsha Vardhan Kommana and Ganesh Yaprala are the other co-founders of Matchday.ai, which was set up in 2019.

The platform gives insights into shot accuracies, rate attacks and defense, court coverage, winners and errors, rally length, and also tells whether it is a forehand, a backhand or an overhead shot among others.
