Pink ball to be trialled at Lordís


On Monday
21st April, the pink cricket ball will be trialled in a match at Lordís
for the first time. A strong MCC team will play against Scotland in a
fifty-over contest at the Home of Cricket. Coloured clothing will be
worn and the sightscreens will be black. Each innings will trial a
different manufacturerís pink ball. The captain who wins the toss will
have the choice of the Kookaburra or Dukes pink ball.

Throughout the day, spokespeople from both MCC and Imperial College
London will be available to speak to members of the media to discuss
MCCís work in Research & Development in the game. Investigations
are being carried out on balls (white ones keeping their colour,
viability of pink ones), bats, illegal bowling actions and glued
pitches.

MCCís team for the match against Scotland, beginning at 11am, is as follows:
Darren Bicknell (ex Nottinghamshire)
Chris Hollins
David Ward (ex Surrey)
Will House (ex Sussex and Kent)
Alan Duncan (ex MCC Young Cricketer)
John Stephenson (captain, ex Essex, Hampshire and England)
Josh Knappett (wk) (Worcestershire)
Matt Dennington (ex Kent)
James Hamblin (ex Hampshire)
Min Patel (ex-Kent and England)
Jon Wightman (ex Durham UCCE)



I rekon they will probably choose the dukes ball in the end unless it wears really badly or something... Im looking forward to this game!

I've heard this season our club are going to use these in our Twenty20 games, quite excited to see them really.

Yellow balls will not work. Orange are not the answer so pink or green is the way to go

Yes lime green does not tail in the air and is easy to pick up

I have an Orange one, a Pink one and a Yellow one coming to see what they are like, and to use for catching practice with the colts. Should be interesting.
