Dukes cricket balls will be used exclusively by NT Cricket in their new innovative Cricket 365 program in 2021.
The collaboration will enable Australia’s best emerging players to experience the benefits of playing with a fully hand stitched, top quality cricket ball designed to provide a balance between bat and ball, helping to showcasing the skills of Cricket 365 players.
CEO of NT Cricket Joel Morrison said the organisation was excited to be breaking new ground and furthering player development.
“We are very impressed with the dedication and attention to detail that Dukes put into their products.
“The use of Dukes in Cricket 365 adds a key point of difference that we believe will further enhance player development over winter.
“We’re excited to work with Dukes and showcase their product to an Australian audience.”
Dukes welcomed the opportunity to showcase their products in Australia to further spread the word about their cricketing prowess.
“This is a great opportunity for Dukes to showcase their product at a high level and we believe the performance of the product will speak for itself,” said Dilip Jajodia, Managing Director of Dukes Cricket.
“Dukes white balls last for the full 50 overs so only one ball per innings is necessary. This will help to reduce the cost of playing the game for those that elect to use Dukes balls which we know is a very important consideration for cricket clubs.
“We look forward to a long, mutually beneficial relationship with NT Cricket and their Cricket 365 program.”
