“If a manufacturer cannot produce a ball which cannot last for 50 overs, might as well change the manufacturer. There’s nothing wrong with changing the manufacturer. What is this compulsion with only using the Kookaburra?” Gambhir told Raman Raheja, a Sports Fan, Sports-preneur, Media professional and a Creator who put together this Podcast “180 Not Out”.

Meanwhile, commentator Harsha Bhogle suggested to use duke balls in order to produce more lateral movement and have something for the bowlers in a T20 game.

“I will reiterate this. We need greater balance between bat and ball and in a situation where the pitches aren’t helping, the ball must do more in the air. How about a Duke ball, a ball with a more pronounced seam, that allows more lateral movement and ensures batters can’t just hit through the line at will. Love to hear expert opinions on this,” Harsha Bhogle tweeted.
