Your Cricket Preseason Must Haves:

Your Blade

The most important equipment in your kit bag.

SportsPower suggest: Gray Nicolls Omega 950 Cricket Bat, Kookaburra Obsidian Pro 1500 Cricket Bat

Designed for the demands of our Test, One Day and first-class cricketers, featuring the 6mm POWERCURVE face to enhance the feel of stroke play all-around the wicket, the mid positioned profile will make all shots played seem effortless.

Your Pads

Ensure you choose a set of batting pads that are light weight to allow for easy and free movement when running between the wickets.

Your Lid

When choosing a helmet make sure you select one that is easy to adjust, comfortable and doesn’t restrict your viewing.

SportsPower suggest: Gray Nicolls Atomic Helmet

The Atomic Helmet is made of satin fabric with three air flow vents for superior ventilation. Its stitched in foam lining plus internal size adjustment dial ensure a secure and comfortable fit.

Your Gloves

The right pair of batting gloves are crucial, choose the right pair and you won’t feel any vibration when smash one through the covers.

Your Kicks

Whether your a batsman or bowler the right cricket shoes will help you get through a long day in the field.
