Cricket Balls come in various sizes/ weights (113g, 135g, 156g – 163g) and depending on the particular function, can be manufactured from a variety of materials – Cricket match balls (for competent juniors/ youth/ senior) are manufactured from leather hide with a prominent raised seam and can come in various colours depending on the type of cricket match being played. Day games are most often played with a red ball, whereas a day/ night match is played with a white ball (currently). Match balls are purchased in either four (4) or two (2) piece formats – Often four-piece cricket balls are favoured over two-piece cricket balls for cricket matches.
Practice cricket balls come in a variety on forms, either with or without a seam, and in leather or hard rubbers or PVC or slaz (slaz balls) depending on their primary function – Practice balls for bowling are very similar to the match balls, but a more cost effective version. However, practice balls used for a cricket-bowling machine, are normally a rubber version without a seam. It is essential the correct ball type (use cricket balls only) and size/ weight is used for cricket practices and matches (as per age category), as the incorrect ball type may not only be dangerous, but could also cause irreparable damage to expensive cricket equipment such as cricket bats.
