The World Wide Cricket Ball Solution

The Platypus 'Googly' cricket ballOver the last decade the most common world wide complaint from clubs, cricket associations and leagues from all over the world is undoubtedly the cost and availability of quality cricket balls. This is especially so for the many cricket leagues which are based in non traditional cricket playing nations where playing costs are a serious impediment to the games expansion.

At Middlepeg we have been working on a genuine solution to this dilemma and we are now very pleased to announce our revolutionary World Wide Cricket Ball Solution.

This Cricket Ball program has been especially established for clubs, leagues and national associations around the world so as to efficiently and cost effectively supply what are one of the best quality Australian made, high quality leather cricket balls at prices which are unbelievably low.

Prior to Middlepegs World Wide Cricket Ball Solution one had to either buy rock hard 'concrete type leather' cricket balls or spend valuable funds on expensive good quality cricket balls. Given that clubs and associations often run on tight budgets, poor quality balls are unfortunately often bought to save costs. This is indeed unfortunate as without question the leading cause of bat damage today comes through the use of poor quality rock hard cricket balls that pound, dent and often snap English willow cricket bats which are only designed for use against good quality cork and wool bound leather cricket balls. The choice of poor quality balls only accordingly results in costly and unnecessary equipment damage.

Our World Wide Cricket Ball Solution is based around the superb products made by one of Australia's longest established (1930's) and most specialised cricket ball craftspeople at Platypus Australia. Platypus Cricket Balls have been and are used around the world in many Official First Class International Cricketing Associations and fixtures. Being totally and 100% handmade and hand stitched here in Australia, only the finest leather and materials are used in all Platypus cricket balls.

Best of all and as a part of Middlepegs Official ICC Subsidy Program the pricing of Platypus balls through our Cricket Ball Solution is unheard of and actually beats the pricing of many current poor quality balls. Middlepeg is quite categorical in our quest to finally offer a truly world wide solution to obtaining the best quality Australian hand made cricket balls at the best pricing you will ever see.

We accordingly welcome contact from teams, clubs, leagues and cricket associations all over the world with regards to our World Wide Cricket Ball Solution. With Middlepegs extensive global distribution and shipping network delivery only takes 2 to 4 days no matter where you are in the world and even better yet our Cricket Ball shipping is also subsidised through our Subsidy Program.

Be it 4 piece balls for turf wickets or 2 piece balls for artificial turf these are simply the finest cricket balls in cricket…there is nothing like the sound of good quality leather cricket balls on willow. With clubs in Europe, the Americas and more now utilising our Cricket Ball Solution many cant believe such high quality balls are available for under US$10 per ball - including DELIVERY!
