India captain Virat Kohli backed England-made Dukes balls to be used worldwide and expressed his displeasure at the poor quality of the SG balls that India use at home.
"The Dukes ball, I think, is the most suited ball for Test cricket. If there's a situation I would vouch for that to be used all over the world because of the consistency of the ball and how the bowlers are in the game at any stage, even the spinners, because the seam is so hard and upright," Kohli said on the eve of the second Test against the West Indies.
