    Swing in Duke balls?

    Is it true that the Duke cricket balls swing considerably more compared to ones made by other manufacturers?

    If so what is the reason behind it- The texture of the leather, maybe?

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Also the leather. Some years the Dukes have swung more. 2009 and 2011 weren't good years. In 2011 England used the batch from 2010.
