Five Important Items to Have in Your Cricket Kit

The first thing that comes to mind when thinking of cricket kit are bats, gloves, pads, and helmets. How do you improve your performance if you have these other essential items with you?

In your cricket kit bag, you should have these five items.

1. Protective Equipment

In addition to the helmet, what else should you include in your cricket kit?

I have seen players bat without thigh guards, which is insane! Thigh guards are an essential item to have with you, since the last thing you want is to be concerned about the ball hitting your thigh at speed. Getting in behind the ball may become difficult as a result.

Additionally, a male cricketer’s mid-section needs protection. On tracks that bounce, arm-guards are also recommended.


2. Batting Toe Guard

Simplicity is the key here.

Toe guards are not something you immediately think of when packing a cricket kit, but they are an essential component of protecting your bat. In addition to preventing unnecessary bat toe damage, they also prevent having to repair or replace your bat at a later time. Cracks, moisture, and swelling are common signs of bat damage.

Don’t forget to take care of your gear!


3. Cricket Hat

Play cricket with fun, and wear sunscreen. Don’t forget your cricket hat!


  • Bats and gloves both need to be protected. If you bat or keep wickets in hot conditions, you may sweat, which could lead to these problems:
  • When batting or keeping gloves may become wet and uncomfortable to wear. As well, after wearing them for a while, they can become hard inside.
  • A better fit is achieved with inner gloves.
  • You can protect your hands with inner gloves.


As well as helping your gloves last longer, this simple addition can make you feel more comfortable on the field.

5. Cricket Stumps

While practicing, it is important to carry a set of stumps with you, whether they are wooden, plastic or metal.

Personally, I enjoy practicing strokeplay by throwing a tennis ball against a wall, with stumps behind me to ensure my positioning is accurate. Besides net sessions, I also enjoy throwing tennis balls against walls.

In addition, if you are a bowler, you would know that you can gauge your lines and lengths by bowling at a set of stumps. Aim for the top of the stumps!

A complete, well-rounded cricket kit should include these five essential cricket accessories!
