LAHORE - Pakistani manufactured cricket ball, to be used in the 4th World Blind Cricket Cup (WBCC) in South Africa in November, will help in giving a new boost to blind cricket in Pakistan, besides elevating the country's image. "We will be shipping 2000 balls to the cup organisers and it is a big honour for the country that we have made a cricket ball which is liked by blind cricketers across the globe,” said manufacturer M Akram. He said he produced the white-coloured ball after a thorough research realising the fact that a special plastic ball less in weight was the need of the blind cricketers. “The ball is 82-85 grams in weight to meet the international standards. It has 7mm thickness and 17 ball barring are inserted in it to produce voice at the time when it is roll down during bowling.”–APP
