Shuttlers will be allowed two challenges when badminton uses technology to rule on contentious decisions for the first time at next month’s Indonesia Open, the governing body of the sport said.

The system, featuring ultra-slow motion cameras, will allow players to review line calls and umpire overrules, the Badminton World Federation (BWF) said in a statement. Badminton has joined tennis, rugby and cricket in adopting a review system.

The system will only be available on one court at the June 10-16 Super Series Premier event in Jakarta. Agencies
