Kookaburra was established in 1890 and is the world leader in cricket balls. Test, ODI and Twenty20 balls are hand-crafted in its Melbourne factory, but in recent years there has been a new focus in India.
“In 2014 we opened a manufacturing facility in India. This has taken one hundred – plus years of knowledge from making cricket balls in Australia to India, so we can now make balls for grassroots cricket in India. This complements our role as the official ball supplier to the IPL,” Kookaburra Managing Director Brett Elliot said.
“Having Sanju Samson, one of the rising stars of the IPL, coming on board as a brand ambassador is another sign of our commitment to India.”
