Pink Ball...Yellow ball

Post by Slogga on Sat Feb 02, 2008 12:24 pm

Apparently the MCC are speaking with the RAF as the RAF often painted planes pink to hide in clouds. So this could mean that a pink ball wouldnt show up against thick cloud in matches. Also colourblind people often see pink as sky blue so the ball would get lost in the sky...
Apparently the MCC are now considering making the new balls yellow! Brilliant Idea!

Yellow is no good, leaves a 'trail' in the air and can distract batsman and tv audiences. Pink is the way to go I think.
