Hey Rick, I have a cricket ball that was given to me around 18 years ago by an uncle. It is an official match-day ball from the World Series of Cricket. The ball is white, with green stitching, and red writing. On one side it has the World Series Cricket logo on it, and on the other it has the maker's name (A. G. Thompson Pty Ltd).
