    Cricket Balls are the main component of the exciting game of cricket. They are available in a variety of sizes, colors, and qualities that are all determined by budget and level of play. “Air” cricket balls are synthetic and great for children learning to play. Mutli-material cricket balls are a split between cricket and tennis balls and are used for training.  Most cricket balls are made from cork and wrapped in dyed leather that’s stitched around it. The seams that are created by the stitching are a good indicator into the quality of the ball. Balls used for test matches tend to have 78 to 82 stitches, while practice and lower level play balls have as few as 55. High quality balls are coated in a thin polish to give it shine, while cheaper balls are covered with a thicker coating that gives it longevity, but will affect the balls movement and quality of gameplay. Typically, the more you spend on cricket balls, the better they will be. Cheaper balls are harder and over time can lead to broken cricket bats.
