Size Guide for Cricket Batting Pads:

When playing hard-ball cricket, you are probably most concerned about your overall safety and batting pads play an important role in that.

Below is our size guide that will help you choose the right batting pads for maximum protection.

SMALL BOYS 30 - 32cm
BOYS  32 - 35cm

LARGE MENS 44 - 48cm

 

Size Guide for Cricket Batting Gloves:

Selection of right batting gloves also plays an important part in your performance as a batsman. Obviously, the gloves allow you to grip your bat perfectly and play your strokes freely. Besides, they give your hands the safety they need. The gloves size is usually measured in centimeters and it is the measurement of length starting from your wrist and going all the way to the tip of your longest finger in straight line. Gloves sizes can also differ from one manufacturer to the other. However, here’s a size guide that will help you choose the right gloves.

These gloves make it look pretty straightforward when it comes to catching the cricket ball. Many often think that they are larger in size as compared to the batting gloves. Well, they look and feel bigger but the size of these gloves is measured in exactly the same fashion as the batsmen gloves.

Size Guide for Wicket Keeping Pads:

Keeping pads are different from the batting pads. Yes, keeping pads are slightly on the shorter side but they still serve the same purpose that is to protect the legs – but not the legs of the batsman this time as they’re used by wicket keepers while they stand behind the wicket. The length of these pads is measured in the same fashion and you can follow our guide here for the selection of most appropriate keeping pads in terms of size.

Size Guide for Cricket Helmet:

Helmet is another piece of cricket equipment that offers ultimate protection to the players. It covers the head and avoids head injuries. Beside, modern helmets also help avoid face injuries as well because of that protective case right in front of the face.
