Starc, Khawaja express concern over hardness of pink ball

Melbourne [Australia], Nov. 1 : Australia fast bowler Mitchell Starc has raised concerns over the hardness of the pink ball, saying it loses its hardness very early and goes soft within 20 overs.

The left-arm pacer, however, feels there is a lot to like about Kookaburra's new edition of the pink ball, but added there is still scope for improvement.

"It's still losing its hardness way too early. I think after 20 overs it starts to go soft. Kookaburra are improving it a lot," Starc was quoted as saying by news.com.au.

"They've changed the colour of the seam and put another coat of lacquer on it, which is helping the ball but I think we just want to see that ball stay hard for a lot longer than it does," he added.
