Exactly right. As nice as it would be to have Dukes balls, their purpose is and always has been for turf wickets. Regardless of how decent a cricket ball we use, a synthetic pitch will not ensure the longevity of the pillthey do last considerably longer.
But they are a tad more expensive. It will never happen anyway. It would be a waste on hard wickets.
