    Well in cricket when you are playing the game you are always looking to get batsmen out. Cricket is played with a hard ball which has a leather outside and there is a seam down the middle of the ball. as the game goes on you are trying rough up the leather on one side of the ball, and make the other side of the ball shiny,( you do this by rubbing the ball on your trousers or spitting and rubbing this side of the ball), so the ball will swing. The swing happens because the shiny side of the ball cuts through the air faster than the roughed up side so the ball swings towards the rough side of the ball when it is going down the pitch. swing can confuse the batsman or make the ball very hard to hit. now the reason i made this ball is to replicate this movement of the ball, but with a much softer ball. also it is good to train with to get used to swing. sorry if this is too confusing
