Ø Raw Material:
British Standard BS 5993 specifies the construction details, dimensions, quality and performance of cricket balls.

Ø Approx. Cost For Manufacturing:
Red ball- 300 rs./piece
White ball-650 rs./piece
Ø Manufacturing Process step by step :
· The material comes from farms around Meerut and is inspected by a leather technologist who separates sheets with scratches and blemishes from others that are clean of visual defects.
· The ones that make the grade are cut into two-and-a-half square foot pieces and then treated with chemicals for the tanning process.
· This helps strengthen the leather and make it flexible. The sheets are then dried in the sun, after which they return to a row of basins further down, where men wearing shorts and galoshes stomp down on them in vats of bright red dye.
· They squeeze and stretch and bend these vibrant red pieces, straining like masseurs, and with much the same purpose: to prevent stiffness and release tension, thereby making it more flexible.
· Then a dollop of animal fat melts into the leather under a benevolent sun to bind and strengthen.
· The ball’s lips are then sealed in a process called lip-stitching. Steel cups press on the ball from both sides, forcing the unjoined leather at the ball’s mouth to jut outwards.
· The pieces are bound by steady hands: one holds a strong needle while the other clasps a tool effective at puncturing leather.
· For men’s cricket, the ball must weigh between 5.5 and 5.75 ounces (155.9 and 163.0 g) and measure between 8 13/16 and 9 in (224 and 229 mm) in circumference. Balls used in women’s and youth matches are slightly smaller.
