For men’s cricket, the official ball weighs between 155.9 and 163 grams. The ball’s circumference is between 22.4 and 22.9 centimeters. For women’s cricket, the ball usually weighs between 140 and 151 grams. It has a circumference of between 21 and 22.5 centimeters.
Generally, cricket balls are made from three different materials: leather, cork, and string. Cork makes the ball’s core. The string is then used to wrap the core many times over for reinforcement.Leather is used to wrap both the string and cork. Normally, the leather is dyed red (which shows that it is to be used in test and first-class matches) or white (indicating that they should be used for Twenty20 and one-day matches).
