Cricket Australia and the University of Queensland have partnered to develop the Australian Cricket Ball Standard to ensure community clubs and associations have access to high quality and competitively priced cricket balls.
The Standard will govern the quality and performance of cricket balls used in Australia in Premier Cricket, Senior Community Turf and Senior Community Synthetic competitions with criteria and equipment to be developed to test cricket balls in other levels of competition.
In early 2019 testing commenced with balls from five manufacturers and the first balls that have been tested and met the respective criteria of the standard can now be seen in the Catalogue section
On the toolbar you will find tabs providing further detail about the Australian Cricket Ball Standard testing, which cricket balls have been deemed to have met the criteria and how manufacturers can submit balls for testing.
The resources tab contains a number resources explaining how manufacturers can submit balls for testing against the Australian Cricket Ball Standard, as well as a copy of the standard itself.
The catalogue tab provides you with a comprehensive list of cricket balls which have been deemed to have met the criteria for one of the three classifications against the Australian Cricket Ball Standard.
