HOWZAT! The Science in Cricket (2020)

CREMORNE THEATRE QPAC

Summary

In the right hands, a cricket ball can do some pretty amazing things, almost appearing to defy the laws of physics. Many a batter has been bamboozled by a googly, beaten by reverse swing or caught out by a steepling bounce.

Science is at the heart of the battle between bat and ball – from the precision placement of a drive to bowling spin or a turn of pace. Cricketers Jodie Fields and Michael Kasprowicz join cricket-loving scientists to reveal some of the forces and formulae behind this great game.
