Cricket Balls Cricket ball is an important equipment in the cricket game.

MaterialsCricket balls aren't made of a single materials, rather they are a combination of different materials at different layers. Primarily they are made from a core of cork tightly wound with strings. Then covered by a leather case stitched such that the seam is raised slightly. Six rows of strings are stitched on a ball.


WeightThe weight of a cricket shall not be less than 5.5 oz (156g) and not more than 5.75 oz (163g).

CircumferenceThe circumference is within 224 to 229 mm.

ColorThe cricket balls for test and first class level is dyed traditionally red. For one day matches white cricket balls are used due to their more visibility under floodlights. The white cricket balls swings a lot more during the first half of the innings than the red cricket balls. Training cricket balls are in the colors of white, red and pink. In some cases, wind balls and tennis balls in a cricket motif are also used for unofficial cricket matches.


Buying TipsA good cricket ball is an essential requirement in the game of cricket. A good ball will swing and help the fast bowlers. It can last for a long time, till the end of the match and does not damage any cricket bats. In many cases, amateur cricketers make the mistake of buying a glossy red ball thinking that it is a good ball. But this is not the case so. Not all balls are made the same. The International cricket balls do not have any wax on them and the leather is naturally shined. The low quality balls are coated with a layer of wax to make them look attractive. This layer comes off after few use and the balls also harden after repeated use, which can even break the cricket bat.

Here are some factors to consider before buying a ball.
  • Spend a little extra money and time for a quality product.
  • Look for the seam's condition. The seam is hand stitched in every ball and this is hand made and hence bound to have some flaws. Check minutely the stitches at the seam. There should be uniform stitches. The two halves of the ball are stitched together at the seam. They should come together precisely. Those ball where there are some gaps between the two halves should not be purchased.
  • Check the balance of the cricket ball. When you buy a cricket ball, first of all, give it a toss. This you can do by rolling your middle and index fingers over the seam. You should know that a well balanced ball will spin upright after you release it. On the otherhand, a poorly balanced ball will start to wobble.
