If a ball has gone out of shape and needs to be changed, the umpires bring out a box of balls which are similar to one being bowled. Where do these other balls come from?

1 Answer 1


They are balls used in previous matches and kept to be used as spares. They will be the same type of ball as being used.

The umpires then look for a ball of similar wear and tear.
