    Is it right to play cricket with a so hard ball that can be used as bullet for gunpowder cannon?

    cricket ball is so hard and it has a record of causing death and lots injuries everyday. After all I do not understantd what is the benefit for human being in risking their health just for a stupid(not a mandatory part to live good and has lots of substitute) game.

    Cricket is played with many types of balls on different levels but if you are talking about international cricket, it is played with a leather ball which has switched around the ball. Yes it is hard ball but with modern techniques, there are many safety guards for players like helmets and pads which ensure the safety. Dear playing and watching cricket trills only when fast bowler is on full pace and batsman try to escape not to hit. The eyes of fast bowler is the best show of aggression.

    Almost anything shot from a cannon would be deadly because of the muzzle velocity. Look at the destruction that benign debris causes in a tornado.  Once something is flung fast enough, it becomes a weapon.

    All sports have deaths if the circumstances line up just so.  Skiers die, football players, baseball.  We can't regulate everything. At some point the people playing the game take responsibility for the risks, and still want to play.  If we outlawed everything that is dangerous -we would live in a wasteland.

    Because a hard ball is part of the game, we don't want the health and safety nannies sticking their oars in.
