Cricketers and sport scientists alike have long hypothesised that high humidity may increase the swing effect.

But precise 3-D studies of cricket balls under varying humidity showed no effect on the balls’ shapes.

A report due in Procedia Engineering instead suggests that cloud cover increases swing by stilling the air.

I didn't believe this was real either until I read about it. While drilling in 1971 for natural gas, Soviet geologists tapped into a cavern filled with natural gas. The ground beneath the drilling rig collapsed, leaving a large hole with a diameter of 70 metres (230 ft). To avoid poisonous gas discharge, it was decided to burn it off. Geologists had hoped the fire would use all the fuel in a matter of days, but the gas is still burning today and is the cleanest alternative to capturing the gas by not allowing methane into the atmosphere.
