Dear (s) ................... (something circulated on 19th Nov 2007)

The Marylebone Cricket Club, which creates and upholds the rules of cricket, is working intensely on ball tampering !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Colour is simply light of different wavelengths and frequencies and light is just one form of energy that we can actually see that is made up from photons. Color, is the physical phenomenon of light or visual perception associated with the various wavelengths in the visible portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. As a sensation experienced by humans and some animals, perception of color is a complex neurophysiological process.

In science the primary colours are red, green and blue. This makes sense as it can be proved with a ray box. However, in art the primary colours are said to be blue, red and yellow and red which is believable as with these colours all other colours can be obtained.
The retinas in our eyes though have three types of colour receptors in the form of cones. We can actually only detect three of these visible colours - red - blue and green. These colours are called additive primaries. It is these three colours that are mixed in our brain to create all of the other colours we see... We can see seven main colours of the Visible Spectrum


All cricket viewers know the reason and logic behind a sightscreen.

Here is Umpire gesticulating for movement of spectators away from the screen. Of course one would have this luxury only in bigger versions and not when one plays for local teams.
A sightscreen is used in cricket so that when the bowler delivers the ball, the batsman can see it clearly against the background. It also prevents any major distractions from occurring in that direction as the batsman is focusing on the ball. It also prevents light from shining into the batsman's eyes so he can see the ball clearly. Traditionally they are in white so that the batsmen could spot the red ball.

The traditional red ball [CHERRY] could be replaced by one of a more visible hue. Pink, to be precise, and fluorescent pink at that. The MCC is considering introducing fluorescent pink balls to county one-day cricket if trials in university and second XI games are successful, according to a report in The Times. The logic is that a pink ball may be seen more easily, and a fraction earlier, by a batsman than a white one.
White balls were first used in the sport when Kerry Packer introduced floodlights at the Sydney Cricket Ground during the second year of World Series Cricket in 1978-79 Experiments with orange balls were done in domestic cricket in England in 1989, but television companies found that the balls did not show up properly in day-night matches A blue ball was once designed for women’s cricket, but was discontinued. The new balls will be tested at Lord's indoor school this winter and will be used in university and 2nd XI matches next year. If scientists at Imperial College, London, can get the balls to keep their colour, they could be used in one-day county cricket next year and even eventually in one-day internationals.
The balls, made by Kookaburra, are already in use in Australia, where they are being tested in women's cricket. The MCC, which is responsible for the laws of cricket, has been testing different colours for the last year. Its head of cricket, John Stephenson, is responsible for the innovation and he told The Times: "Paint tends to flake off white balls and we have asked Kookaburra to produce a batch of pink ones because these show up so much better.
"The challenge is to produce a ball which retains its colour which may not be any more expensive to produce or buy. Scientists will also test the pink balls for television: orange ones used before left a trail in the dark.
It is guaranteed that the Game of Cricket enjoyed by millions across the Globe would improve to be a more colourful one and remain a game of interest for the players, spectators on ground and those who view on television – over looking many traditionalist views. Whatever may the COLOUR………….. the game is always interesting
Here it is - how it would look like

  1. Before you get a used game that's been out for a while, search Youtube or another video sharing site for a review. People review older games all the time, and you can see what it looks like before spending any money. Don't get stuck paying for a game that you won't enjoy.
