A cricket player striding out to bat often resembles a warrior going into battle. Without the appropriate equipment, standing to face a bowler who is able to bowl a cricket ball at nearly 100mph would often result in serious injury. To find information on equipment used by cricketers or even to make an equipment purchase online, visit the following cricket equipment sites and pages.

And no, we don’t get any commissions or kick backs from them.
