    For the 2012 club season, any recommendations for cricket balls, ie what type and best value places to purchase them online?

    Cricket balls

    It depends on the quality of players and length of game played.

    We sell many more Readers balls than other brands, with the Readers Gold A the best selling match ball. Most bowlers will tend to stick with a cricket ball they get most wickets with and if you change the brand or type of ball, only to see the wickets falling decrease, expect to get an ear bashing.

    Readers, Dukes and Tiflex are probably the 3 best selling brands in the UK. Surprisingly the Kookaburra range of balls doesn't sell as well in the UK, as it does in other countries. I like their mid range balls but, they are slightly more expensive than Readers.

    A decent match ball should always be a four piece ball. The quality then is reliant on the type of core and quality of stitching used.

    Having used both types, the Kookas in England are a completely different type of ball than what gets used in Australia.

    It may be the case and possibly the reason Kookaburra are transforming their UK range of cricket balls. Over the next few years Kookaburra will be re-branding the cheaper balls available in the UK market.

    The Gold Crown will be now known as County Club and the Super Match will be known as the County Star. This is the same as in Australia. This will allow Kookaburra to produce a range of balls in India/Pakistan that can be split between all markets and not have ones specific to any individual country.

    Hopefully the quality will be the same as the Aussie model.
