- In Test cricket, the fielding side may request a new ball after it has been in use for 80 overs.
- The batsmen would be informed and the umpire would indicate the new ball to the scorers by raising it for them to see.
- The new ball usually brings the quicker bowlers back on and the whole pace of the game would change with them.
- The ball does get wear and tear and if it becomes ragged or out of shape in fair circumstances, we would replace it with a ball which had been used for the same number of overs.
