This new technology will give singles players and doubles pairs the chance to challenge line calls or umpire over-rules of line calls with each player, or pair, given two challenges throughout a match. If an original line call, after review, is deemed correct then the player or pair will lose one of their challenges.
Secondly, what is instant review system?

Besides, how many challenges are there in badminton?
What technology is used in badminton?
Hawk-Eye is a computer vision system used in numerous sports such as cricket, tennis, Gaelic football, badminton, hurling, rugby union, association football and volleyball, to visually track the trajectory of the ball and display a profile of its statistically most likely path as a moving image.
The Premier League’s VAR technology is supplied by UK-based Hawk-Eye Innovations. Hawk-Eye are perhaps best known for ball tracking in tennis to determine whether a shot is ‘in’ or ‘out’; however, they also provide technology for many other sports including cricket, ice hockey, badminton and athletics.
While the use of instant replay in sports has expanded rapidly in the past two decades, its negative consequences, including a less entertaining product, inviting a system that treats some calls as more important than others and harming the social contract between players and officials have caused more harm than good …
Instant replays are used today in broadcasting extreme sports, where the speed of the action is too high to be easily interpreted by the naked eye, using combinations of advanced technologies such as video servers and high-speed cameras recording at up to several thousand frames per second.
- A match consists of the best of three games of 21 points.
- The player/pair winning a rally adds a point to its score.
- At 20-all, the player/pair which first gains a 2-point lead wins that game.
- At 29-all, the side scoring the 30th point wins that game.
- The player/pair winning a game serves first in the next game.
The reason behind not introducing the Hawk-Eye technology on the magnificent clay courts at French Open is because of the surface itself. When the ball bounces on the surface, it leaves behind a mark thereby eliminating the need for an electronic line-calling system.
