Question
Hello Sir,
         In A Test Match How Many times is a new ball taken and is it compulsory ?

Answer
Hello Kunal,
         
Nice to See you people asking these type of good questions.

in a test match a new ball can is available after a span of every 80 overs but it isn't mandatory but after 100 overs it is mandatory to take a new ball it is same for the two teams.

eg: if a new ball is taken at 87.2 overs it is considered as a new ball taken at 87 over and another new ball is available at 167 over but it is mandatory to take a new ball at 187 over.


         thank you for asking such questions.
