The cane blind cricket balls were the first balls to be used in Australia from the mid 1920’s through until 1972.
Then the red nylon blind cricket ball was used from 1972 to 1974 only.
The black nylon blind cricket ball was in use since 1974 until the end of the 2002/2003 season.
The white nylon blind cricket ball was made especially for New Zealand in the early 1990’s. This colour ball was found to be unsuitable for our game and therefore, the black ball was preferred in New Zealand as well as Australia.
This ball has been in use since the beginning of the 2003/2004 season.
A small white solid plastic blind cricket ball with small metal pieces inside is presently used in India and a majority of the Sub Continent countries and this was the ball used during the first and second World Cups for Blind Cricket played in India during November 1998 & December 2002. The World Blind Cricket Council has investigated the option of adopting a new ball, which has still not been accepted by all participating countries through out the world.
