Cricket is an excellent way to bond with friends and family, but many things could happen during the game. Because of how accident-prone sports are, protective equipment like cricket pads and helmets can help ensure an enjoyable, injury-free game. At Sportsmans Warehouse, we help you to prioritise safety to maximise fun. You should always bring gloves, batting pads and other protective gear in your cricket bag during games, whether casual or competitive.
The great thing about choosing from the many cricket batting pads online is the element of choice. You’ve got a range of style and colour options to shop from, meaning you can opt for a design that’s easily identifiable.
Batting Pad Sizes
Cricket pads protect the batter's knees, ankles and shins, which are prone to injury. The padding is attached to the player's leg through a strap wrapped around the calf. Different variations are available online, so you can balance price, comfort, quality, design and durability to have a great playing experience.
Aside from the other options, you should consider the appropriate size when buying cricket batting pads since getting a fit too tight or loose could cause injury or stress. Take a measuring tape and benchmark a straight line from the knee cap centre down to the instep or top part of the shoe.
Here are the available sizes of cricket pads for sale at Sportsmans Warehouse:
Small Junior - 25 (9.84") to 30 (11.81")
Junior - 30 (11.81") to 35 (13.78")
Youth - 35 (13.78") to 38 (14.96")
Small Adult - 38 (14.96") to 41 (16.14")
Adult - 41 (16.14") to 44 (17.32")
Oversize Adult - above 44 (17.32")
Most guards are coloured, but there may be instances where you want to change colours or designs. There are cricket batting pad clads of different sizes available to customise and give a unique flair to the player's gear. You can think of them as large coloured socks for your pad that also extend your gear's lifespan.
Cricket Pads for Sale
Manufacturers used to produce traditional leather batting pads, but these were significantly expensive, heavier, hard to maintain and deteriorated quickly. As a result, many contemporary pads are made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and polyurethane (PU), which are lightweight, durable, easy to clean and give appropriate protection from hard balls.
There are cricket batting pads made from foam, cane and cotton. Professionals or serious cricket players often add kevlar or carbon for bolstered protection. You should also learn the proper upkeep and maintenance for these pads since they are an investment and can last season after season when cared for adequately.
