In this blog, we have discussed a few essentials you will need to search for to complete your cricket kit bag. We will also help you answer some of your questions related to the kitbag.
Batting Pads: Batting pads are essential to this game and an important part of any cricket kit bag. Cricket pads are used while batting as they protect your legs from knee to your ankle. However, it also covers a specific part of your leg, even above your knee on your thigh. While choosing suitable batting pads, you must ensure that your knee is lined upright in the middle of the knee roll, and pads should not get in the way of your hands when you are in a batting posture. Choosing the right kind of batting pads is important otherwise, they will get in the way and become a burden for you while running and playing strokes. Inappropriate-sized pads will not be effective in giving you complete protection as your batting pads will not position correctly.
