Opiss had introduced the English DUKE.

The Dukes cricket ball behaves differently from the Kookaburra !!

The seams on Dukes are hand-stitched, and they tend to swing for longer than Kookaburra balls,

though movement is heavily influenced by pitch and weather conditions  ;)

* Bishoo took 4 wickets and scored 30 and 15* and some of the clowns over at CC want to drop him.

* In the meantime Holder and Roach didn't take a single wicket but tey are set for life.

* Having said that---the WI no longer has quality quicks----they'll remain ranked #7/8 for years to come.

The famous West Indian fast bowlers of the 1980s propelled Dukes balls, often at the batsman’s head, but when Roger Harper was the West Indies coach he switched to Kookaburras so they would not be unfamiliar when his team toured Australia and South Africa.

The switch back to Dukes, to try to revive West Indian fast bowling, was made four years ago. But the seams were found to split on surfaces which were often rolled and hard-baked mud. So a ball was made specifically for West Indian usage, using seams of stronger thread and more lacquer, which costs WICB £55 a time.

The type of ball being used in this series is the British Cricket Balls Grade 1 County (Dukes).  Equipped with this missile, James Anderson set up and cleaned up Kraigg Brathwaite !!!
