Hampshire director of cricket Giles White said an England try of the Kookaburra ball would be “interesting”.
“It’s just throwing another variable into the season to see how the players react,” White told BBC Radio Solent.
“[And] to see which players can still take wickets and influence plays with a slightly different ball.”
This would be the first time the Kookaburra ball was used in County Championship games.
Last summer there were repeated problems with the ball for the Dukes, both in county play and in international cricket, get out of shape.
The ECB told BBC Sport that the trial of a Kookaburra ball was a recommendation from the High Performance Review and that no decision on whether to introduce one has yet been made and that it listened to comments from the FCC.
White thinks any type of change will be an interesting challenge for bowlers.
“When we play away as an England side, we play with a Kookaburra ball and that’s a slightly different skill needed to get your 20 wickets with it.
“You have to think more about the pace and it doesn’t do so many things out of the seam that aren’t as pronounced, and the ball might not swing as long.”
White says Hampshire could use a Kookaburra when they host Middlesex at the Ageas Bowl in late June and when they leave to play Taunton this summer.
The ECB said a key part of the high performance review was to ensure the whole game was aligned.
This could mean that all 18 County Championship teams use Aussie ball in the same period.
“It will be interesting to see if anything comes of it,” White added.
‘No directive’ for national teams to play ‘Bazball’
Earlier this month, at the annual winter meeting of county coaches and cricket managers, England Test captain Ben Stokes and England head coach Brendon McCullum offered insight into their bold new take on the game, dubbed “Bazball”.
White says Stokes and McCullum didn’t tell the national teams how to play: “There were certainly no guidelines for playing that brand of cricket.
“What they insisted on more than anything was playing to a player’s strengths.
“Everyone who went to this meeting would have listened carefully and taken notes so they could pass on the learnings in their own environment.
“It was a very good meeting, nothing revolutionary, but fascinating to listen to them.”
“Bowlers need to be more savvy with Kookaburra” – Analysis
Kevan James, former Middlesex & Hampshire cricketer and BBC Radio Solent commentator
The Kookaburra ball requires a pace shooter to think a bit more about how they are going to take wickets.
The Dukes ball, with its more pronounced seam, gives a bowler a bit more lateral movement – even sometimes when it’s not intended.
Its composition also allows the shine to stay on it a bit longer, allowing the ball to swing for long periods of time.
The Kookaburra ball offers less of the above, which means bowlers need to be a little more discerning about how they are going to take wickets.
This could mean varying their pace, setting more planned and dynamic fields, and generally having a plan while bowling rather than just “twirling the arm” and waiting for the ball to deflect one way or another.
