Little known in our country, cricket is a team non-contact sport that belongs to the family of games that use a bat and a ball.
Cricket was invented in the 16th century in the south of England, and by the end of the 18th century, the game had become one of the national sports. The cricket ball is made by hand – and it is quite painstaking work. The cricket ball is made of cork and covered with leather. Its diameter should be in the range from 22.4 to 22.9 centimeters, and its mass should be from 155.9 to 163 grams. As a rule, one ball is used in one move. The exception is those cases when the projectile is lost – then it is replaced with a similar one.
In addition, a field team may request a ball change after a specified number of six-game sets have been played. The red ball is used in test cricket, the white ball is used in limited overs cricket. But just look how much effort it takes to make this little sports equipment!
