While 2020 has been an unpleasant year in more ways than one, the one thing that has not changed is our love for cricket and cricket gear. So, with the closing of the year just a couple of months away, isn’t it time to treat the cricket player to their favourite pieces of cricket equipment and hope that the next year will be better?
