Gunn & Moore Helmets for the Best of Safety and Comfort

Gunn & Moore is a cricket brand that probably every cricket player is familiar with. It is the go-to brand for many top cricket players for cricket equipment such as bats, shoes, bags and clothing because of the unparalleled quality that the brand has maintained over years. GM’s cricket protection equipment is equally reliable and comfortable. A cricket helmet from the brand will not only protect the player against head and face injuries from a forceful ball, but it will do so while keeping the player comfortable because it is lightweight, fits well, and has an excellent moisture management system. 

The GM Purist Geo Cricket Helmet Senior is among the top cricket helmets for adult players. The navy coloured cricket helmet is available in two sizes – Senior (54 cm to 59 cm) and Senior Large (58 cm to 62 cm). The cricket helmet complies with the latest safety standards, so one can wear it to the pitch feeling assured about safety. The sturdy helmet, whose outer shell is tough and rigid and has an EPS liner, is capable of withstanding hard hits without cracking or breaking. 

It comes fitted with a Geo steel grille which has been designed in a manner that it doesn’t allow the ball to penetrate the gaps, and at the same time, it doesn’t obstruct the player’s vision either. The helmet has a dial adjuster band which enhances the fitting of the helmet and also makes it easier to remove it mid innings. The padding on the inside of the helmet adds to the snug fitting of the helmet and is great for absorbing moisture and enhancing the protection factor of the helmet. 

The GM Purist Geo Cricket Helmet is also available in junior sizes – Junior (54 cm – 59 cm) and Junior small (52 cm to 55 cm).

All You Need to Know About Gray Nicolls’ Powerspot Cricket Bat

Gray Nicolls is one of the oldest and most famous cricket equipment manufacturing companies across the globe. The brand is synonymous with power, elegance, trust and quality in the world of cricket. The company is most well-known for its cricket bat collections such as the Legend, Classic, Oblivion Stealth, Powerbow Inferno and  Shockwave. Recently, the company brought back one of its older cricket bats – the Powerspot, after giving it a modern makeover. 

The iconic bat has been involved in making many memorable stories on the pitch with cricket heavyweights such as Michael Atherton, David Gower and Robin Smith. Michael Atherton, a former captain of England’s cricket team, has, in fact, used the Powerspot for most of his career. His inspiration for choosing the bat was Gower, who played a little before him. Among the most memorable matches that Atherton played with the Powerspot was the 1995 Test match, in which he was facing South African fast bowler Alan Donald. Donald was playing at his aggressive best, but Atherton was also using his Powerspot skilfully, blending force with accuracy. Atherton faced 492 balls over 693 minutes. The match was a draw with Atherton at 185, not out. 

It’s time for the Powerspot to make new stories now. The new Powerspot, made from top quality English willow, retains many of the features of its older descendant, but its features have been improved for the modern game. The bat has the classic red and white branding of Gray Nicolls in the form of a shoulder-to-toe sticker along with the bold black and white check near the shoulder. But on the swell of the bat, you will find the brilliant blue Powerspot graphics. The bat has a large middle which is excellent for making power-packed shots. 

The large mid-blade swell of the bat works in the favour of players of all styles; the expansive sweet spot helps in packing extra power in all shots. The pickup of the bat is smooth and it is surprisingly lightweight given its size. The junior bats weight between 2lb 1oz – 2lb 6oz and the senior bats weight between 2lb 7oz – 2lb 12oz. The bat is not on the expensive side and is perfect for players of all levels. 

Looking to buy this excellent bat? VKS has the Gray Nicolls Powerspot Cricket Bat and all other top bats from the brand. Whether you are a professional player or a beginner, you will find the perfect bat suited to your playing style at VKS.

Dimension GS5 Cricket Net

Whether you presently are a beginner at professional cricket, or were one once upon a time, at some point of time, you must have across a cricket net. A cricket net is a piece of equipment that helps bowlers and batsmen practice their techniques without losing their cricket balls. Common cricket nets consist of nets on either side of the pitch, behind the pitch and optionally above it. The frontside of the player is left open. 

Cricket nets are used both indoors and outdoors. In places like gynamsiums, cricket nets are suspended from runners on the ceiling, and are usually spread over multiple lanes. Outdoor nets are more commonly used than indoor nets. The frames of these nets are usually made from galvanised steel tubes that have been joined by key-clamp brackets. The netting twine is usually made from polyethylene, which is durable and cost-effective.

There are several benefits of using cricket nets –

  1. They prevent the ball from flying across the field and thus, loss of balls is avoided.
  2. They eliminate the need for fielders or wicketkeepers. Batsmen and bowlers can practise on their own inside a cricket net.
  3. They can be used for solitary batting practice with the help of a bowling machine.
  4. They allow several players to practise at the same time by segregating them in lanes.
  5. They prevent injury to others by blocking flying balls.
  6. They prevent damage to property by blocking flying balls.
  7. They help in efficient and cost-effective practice of skills overall.

The GS5 cricket net from Dimension Sport is a widely used outdoor cricket net. It consists of a ground secured metal frame and UV treated mesh. The dimensions of the net are 5m Length x 3m x Width x 3m Height. It can be installed easily in the home garden. The net is easy to install, long-lasting and durable, does not require heavy maintenance and is thus, excellent for solitary practice at home.

The Gray Nicolls Players Cricket Bat is a part of the brand’s classic collection. It is one of their top-selling bats and its design has remained unchanged from 2018. The bat has been made with exceptional quality English willow that is durable and gives the bat its spring. The looks of the bat are simple yet sophisticated. The name of the brand on a bold red sticker across the blade and complemented by the class silver and black check pattern looks quite elegant. The colours also go very well with the white grip of the bat. 

The mid-blade profile of the bat is suited for all playing styles – the precise and cautious shots as well the power-packed punches. The thick edges and the steep spine are particularly good for forceful shots that send the ball flying across the field. The bat gives the players a sustained sweet spot across the blade which helps them in delivering the kind of shots they have planned with ease. The concaved sculpting of the bat adds to its performance and also helps in giving the players a smooth pickup. 

The semi-oval handle of the bat offers a comfortable grip and added control to the batsman. All in all, the bat has some excellent features which make it a powerful bat worth investing in. The bat is available in the following sizes – 5, 6, Harrow and Short. VKS is also giving an excellent discount offer on the bat for a limited period of time.
