We’ve created a checklist for you with everything that you need to play cricket on a regular basis and on a more serious level if you’re planning to take your game to the pitch out of the Galli.
A helmet, sometimes with an attached visor is worn by batsmen and fielders to protect their head. It is recommended for wicketkeepers to wear protective eyewear as well. The impacts of the ball hitting the wicket can be major with the bails getting dislodged after the impact.
Batsmen and Wicketkeeper have different gloves. The ones worn by batsmen are very thickly padded at the tip of all five fingers when it’s compared to thinner wicketkeeping gloves. The wicketkeeper gloves have webbed fingers to help catch the ball.
