More news on balls – the pink ones

The colour of balls used in the English one-day game could change from white to pink if trials by the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), guardians of the laws of cricket, prove successful.

Why are they trying out pink balls?

Mike Gatting, the ECB's managing director of cricket partnerships, said: "We must always push the game forward and ensure we have the right equipment.

"We have tried white and orange balls and perhaps pink ones will last longer.
This is a very interesting and very wise development and a colour may have been
found that is easier on the eye."

The pink balls may be easy on the eye, but will it swing?
