Wicket Keeping

Gloves – It is recognised in the UK that individuals are presented with a choice between long square cuffs or shorter/rounder profile cuffs. It is very much a personal preference (i.e. what feels the most comfortable), between the two. Juniors however do tend to favour the shorter cuffs.

The main areas for consideration on selecting a glove is flexibility and protection. At Chiltern Sports we only stock and promote products that we believe provide a good level of suppleness combined with adequate padding.

Pads – Wicket-keeping pads differentiate from a batting pad in that they are lighter and less bulky. They have a shortened area above the knee and conventionally are fitted with two straps as opposed to the three straps on a batting pad, designed to make it more comfortable for squatting in the recognised wicket-keeping position.
