Going For A Spin? Cricket Club Introduces Vegan Ball
London, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 14th Aug, 2019 ) :WG Grace and Don Bradman may be spinning in their graves at the news an English cricket club have switched to using a vegan ball from the traditional leather one.
Now they have gone the full hog and introduced a vegan cricket ball -- a synthetic animal products-free one covered in rubber instead of leather.
"It does behave like a leather cricket ball, but it bounces more and it's more difficult to grip," Shacklady told the Daily Mail.
"But we're enthused by it and we're hopeful of finding a better version.
Ham and beef sandwiches have been replaced by the likes of Moroccan tagine, lasagne and meat-free spaghetti Bolognese.
"The teas have been well received as our players understand and support the reasoning behind the decision," said Shacklady, who set up the club 12 years ago.
"When other teams come to us, they pile their plates high.
"And when they eat the food, nobody complains.
