We've added to our Dukes range!
There was significant media coverage when Cricket Australia made the announcement in late 2012 that they would approve and trial Dukes cricket balls in the Futures League and National underage championships. Feedback from these trials has been positive so far and there is now a possibility they will be used in the Big Bash next season.
Although not what was reported in the media, much of Cricket Australias decision to endorse Dukes is based around reducing the costs for cricket clubs at a grass-roots level. With Dukes you are getting a proven quality ball with over 250 years history in the game, at cheaper prices than other competitors.
Now that Cricket Australia has approved the Dukes, many local cricket associations will be following in their footsteps. Approval for cricket clubs to use the Dukes ball will commence once cricket associations change their competition rules to include them.
