Hence the Dukes ball will be the official League Ball from 2023 for 3 years. Clubs will be able to use existing stocks of Tiflex balls at the beginning of next season. 
As Phil Robshaw referenced in his secretary’s report, the Board is concerned that the same issues, primarily provision of teas, start times and numbers of overs in each division are being re-visited on annual basis. In order to control this, the Board is using its power under League Management Rule 4.3 and introducing the following new rule: 
4.5 Once a resolution has been passed at an AGM or EGM, no proposals for changing that resolution will be accepted by the Management Board for a period of 3 years without the Board’s agreement.
