Best cricket gear

We’ve been greatly influenced by our employer, The Wisden Cricketer, and their gear guide for 2008 – most of our recommendations reflect this. TWC reviewed bats, padding, keeping equipment, helmets and even base layers to provide a comprehensive guide to the best cricket gear that’s currently available.

Cricket bats

Of all the best cricket bats, we can recommend the Kookaburra Big Kahuna, the Puma Stealth 4000 and the Warsop Venom Pro.
