10 Things You Must Have in Your Cricket Kit

Are you a budding cricketer and looking to complete your cricket kit? Here are the cricket essentials you need to have in your cricket kit – 

  1. Cricket Bat – A good cricket bat is a must-have for every cricketer. To choose a good bat, the player must first decide their budget and then evaluate the bats available within that range. Pickup is an important factor that can influence a player’s performance, so the player must perform a pickup test before selecting the bat.

A good cricket shirt fits well, feels comfortable, is effective at moisture management and conducive to movement.
