Reasons Why a 4 Piece Cricket Ball is Better Than a 2 Piece ball?

What is the difference between a 2 piece and a 4 piece cricket ball? A cricket ball is manufactured using various grades of leather, depending on the quality of ball. The ball is constructed using a 4 piece or 2 piece method and then stitched together to create a seam.

The best balls and in fact, all of the hard leather cricket balls we offer, are constructed using the 4 piece method. A 2 piece ball will have 2 sections of leather hide which is then shaped around the inner materials and then stitched to create a ball. The leather has to be stretched more than a 4 piece ball and so could have areas within the leather which is thinner. This creates an imbalance and can make the ball less reliable through the air.

A 4 piece ball has it's hide cut into 4 quarters and pairs are then sewn together. The 2nd pair is rotated 90 degrees and then they are stitched together. The hide has less stretching to enable it to form the ball shape, making the thickness of the leather more consistent throughout the ball. This makes the ball more reliable and the bowler is then more likely to be able to control the swing and movement through the air.

2 piece balls are often used in net practice and for fielding drills. 4 piece balls are used at most cricket clubs and schools as the ball is a higher quality and likely to last longer too.
