CA Tennis Ball Cricket Bat

CA Tennis Ball Cricket Bat

 

So, you are a beginner to the game of cricket and have probably begun playing with a tape ball or a tennis ball. This is a very good move, starting off with a tape or Tennis Ball Cricket Bat before moving on to the real hard leather cricket ball, will ensure that you have adequate bat skills before you have to face the hard ball.

This also means that you have to find a bat that will perform with the tape and tennis balls. Many people falsely think that any old bat would do. This is not so, as you probably want to use something a little less expensive, but still something that gives you the feeling of wielding a real cricket bat. This is why the CA Somo Cricket Bat 2014 is a great beginners bat.
It is sturdy and gives the batsman the feeling of a real cricket bat but is specially crafted for optimum play on a tennis or tape ball. CA’s 2014 range is superlative and they have left no market unchartered. The fact that they have gone the lengths to engineer a bat like the Somo with specific tape ball credentials is something worth marveling at.
If this season you will be facing a tape ball before you move up into the cricketing big leagues, the CA Somo Cricket Bat is a great bat to own. It is priced well and also makes for the perfect backyard cricket bat. If treated properly and protected from the elements, there is no reason why the CA Somo Tape Ball Cricket Bat should not last a lifetime.

I really liked the new 2012 GM original limited edition batting gloves. I found the Pittards leather to be very soft and comfortable yet it still allowed for supremem control of the cricket bat. Over all they seemed a bit loose on me and i would probably use a set of batting inners if i were to use these gloves in a match.

 

The construction and design were also very good with the extra protection on the two bowling fingers. There is plenty of top quality leather on these gloves and that adds to the light weight design of the gloves. lots of vents spread around the gloves so we, here in texas dont over heat during the very hot summers and also lots of extra protection so your hands and fingers dont get jammed up against the bat handle if the ball bounces a little higher than expected.

 

Overall a very good set of cricket batting gloves great for any level even international test level.

GM 808 2012 cricket batting gloves

 

GM 808 cricket batting gloves 2012

 

These are the new 2012 GM 808 cricket batting gloves and are basically a cheaper version of the GM original limited edition gloves. The over quality is still very high and these are a high club or county level glove. Still very light and comfortable its just the type of materials used that make these gloves cheaper. Some examples are instead of these gloves being 0.440g like the Original LE’s these gloves are a little heavier at 0.535 g for the pair.

 

Also instead of the Pittard leather these 808 batting gloves are calf leather.

 

Overall though i would say that these gloves are still very good and if you cant afford the expensive originals i would just get these 808’s as they are still adequate for any normal persons cricket.

David Warner and Steve Smith Use Pink Cricket Bat.

There has been somewhat of a buzz around Pink cricket bat from different players. Chris Gayle used a gold colored cricket bat for the Big Bash 2015-2016 and Andre Russell has gathered a fair bit of publicity with his black colored Spartan cricket bat.

As has become tradition though, the New Year’s Test Match at the Sydney Cricket Ground is known as the Pink Test Match. This is not to be confused with the fact that when they play a Day/Night Test match they use a Pink cricket ball. The Pink Test Match is there to help raise money for the McGrath Foundation. The McGrath Foundation was started by former Australian fast bowler to raise money for breast cancer awareness. This is something close to Mcgrath’s heart after his first wife, Jane McGrath, died of breast cancer.

In this year’s Pink Test Match, the headlines were stolen before lunch by David Warner who became only the fifth batsman ever to score a century before lunch in a Test Match.

To cricket bat lovers they would have noticed that David Warner was using a brand new Gray Nicolls Kaboom cricket bat and in honor of the Pink Test Match, Gray Nicolls had made special pink cricket bat stickers for the bat for Warner.

Later on the Australian skipper, Steve Smith came out to bat with a brand new New Balance pink cricket bat that had also had the stickers in full pink in honor of the Pink Test Match.

When you think about it, it kind of makes sense that the Pink Test Match should have been a Day/Night Test match so that they could have used the pink cricket ball.

The way David Warner batted, it seems possible that we will be seeing him come out to bat with that Pink stickered cricket bat once again.
