Dukes Statement on cricket ball selectionNaturally, Dukes is disappointed with the decision, having worked hard to develop a product that has worked very well in Australian conditions over the last four seasons.
Particularly, in a year that is being hit by the restrictions related to the Corvid 19 virus and the bowlers expressing concern about not being allowed to apply saliva to polish the ball,
Surely the Dukes ball, which is widely acknowledged to provide superior swing and movement would have been a welcome relief to bowlers in the second half of the season?
It is unfortunate that the opportunity is being missed to make a direct comparison.
It is also a shame that it removes the element of competition which CA was keen to promote at the time Dukes was introduced into the Australian market,
But we looks forward to a re-introduction in the future.
In the meantime Dukes is committed to working with the recreational game to provide better quality and competitive pricing. Level playing field?
