Bhuiyan Shameem Mahmood Ebna Hai, Lecturer and Wing Commander Md. Abdus Salam Ag. Head of Aeronautical Engineering Department at the Military Institute of Science and Technology (MIST), Bangladesh, have undertaken an experiment to find out the the nature and aerodynamic behavior on cricket balls in flight. The experimental observation includes study of aerodynamic behavior of both stationary and rotating cricket ball placed in a wind tunnel.
Layman like me couldn't fathom the significance or implication of the results of the study. Those interested will get the details here.
Not sure if the findings would anyway help to lift the spirit of Bangladesh's cricket team to improve its performance, nonetheless, this news is itself fascinating.
