Bengaluru: A Bengaluru based startup has developed a revolutionary gadget that is set to change Cricket watching experience in India. Once connected to the TV, the gadget will automatically mute the sound whenever Ramiz Raja speaks during commentary.

After testing the device during the first India-Pakistan match in the Asia Cup, they are ready for a nationwide release ahead of the next India-Pakistan match in Super 4 stage.

Speaking to the media at the product launch, the company’s chief engineer said, “Technology should always be used to solve the problems faced by the people and Ramiz Raja’s commentary was a problem faced by all the cricket fans. Thousands of people reported bleeding from their ears whenever Ramiz spoke and we just couldn’t let that continue so we came up with this device.”

“Our special feature will ensure that people can still continue to hear the crowd noise and only Ramiz voice is filtered out. Broadcasters are refusing to drop him from the commentary panel, maybe because he took all his salary in advance but we can at least protect the viewers from the assault of his brainless commentary,” he further added.

The company is also working on developing similar device for Sanjay Manjrekar, Danny Morrison and L. Sivaramakrishnan and hopes to launch those products in time for the IPL 2019.
