Kohli, who s side lost 4-1 in the Test series against <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/england/">England</a> where the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/articles/why-the-duke-ball-gives-a-very-unfair-advantage-to-england-16591">Dukes ball</a> was used, felt he would like the same Dukes ball to be used across the globe. <p></p> <p></p>"The quality of the [SG] balls used to be quite high before. I don't understand the reason why it has gone down because the Dukes ball good quality, Kookaburra is still good quality," Kohli said on Wednesday in Hyderabad. <p></p> <p></p> The quality of the ball has to be maintained otherwise you have too many dead sessions in a Test match. You want to see exciting cricket and guys working hard for runs being in the battle all day. <p></p> <p></p>India s premier off-spinner <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/ravichandran-ashwin-i-prefer-kookaburra-ball-over-sg-ball-354095">Ravichandran Ashwin</a> had also criticised the SG ball after the first Test at Rajkot where the hosts handed a humiliating <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/india-vs-west-indies-1st-test-kuldeep-yadav-r-ashwin-star-in-indias-biggest-win-752888">innings and 272-run defeat</a> to the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/west-indies/">West Indies</a>. <p></p> <p></p>"I totally agree with him [Ashwin]. To have a ball that is scuffed up in the five overs is not something that we have seen before, he said. <p></p> <p></p>India have always used the SG ball in the five-day international and domestic games. England use the Dukes ball for Tests, while <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/australia/">Australia</a>, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/south-africa/">South Africa</a>, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/bangladesh/">Bangladesh</a> and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/sri-lanka/">Sri Lanka</a> prefer the Kookaburra. <p></p> <p></p>"The Dukes ball is the most suited ball according to me in Test match cricket. If there is a situation, I would vouch for it to be used all over the world because of the consistency.
