    Wicket keeping Gloves

    Hi all I was wondering if anyone can tell me which are the best wicket keeping gloves I should buy as my club have made me the wicket keeper for this coming season and I really want to get any help from the gloves as much I can, also should I go for small menís size gloves instead of the normal menís size which I found the ball has more chance of bouncing out off!

    any help? Plz

    Our wicket keeper has been using Puma gloves for quite a while now and is really positive about them. I don't know the specifications but maybe you can have a look at Puma. He told me they have a very long live span.

    Good luck anyway.

    Get the size that fits you properly, preferably with finger protection.

    Get the best inners you can.

    Brand of gloves really doesn't matter much to me: I personally like Gray-Nicolls but you have to be comfortable with them and, as with most things, the more you spend, the better the gloves will be in terms of padding (etc).

    Yeah, don't think the brand really matters all that much; everyone has a different preference, it's just whatever feels best.

    Technically I think I'm still registered at Bicester & North Oxford, but I'm not at all sure where I'll be playing next year. I don't have enough free Saturdays & Sundays with school and county (I manage the U10s) fixtures so I am looking for somewhere close and chilled out that has a good programme of friendly games! Might even end up in the OCA...

    Fist of all hi to everyone, i am a newbie. I have been a wicket keepers since school (about 11 years) and the best advice on gloves i can give is price will not garentee a good glove. I used slazenger gloves 2 seasons ago that cost 45 quid, they only lasted a season, i then got some readers katana gloves for 15 quid and they have lasted 2 season before needing to be replaced. As for feel of glove just get to a cricket shop and try them all on, and most of all make sure you get some good inners. I hope this helps a little and good luck this season.

    What Inners would you say i should go for? cotton? also does having thick padded inners make any difference to taking clean catches?

    I use half chamois inners you can get full chamois or cotton, i use readers they have a good level of padding are very well made and a good price. I wouldnt say thick padding helps take clean catchs but it wont sting as much when you dont take the ball clean.

    There is a website worth checking out Wicket Keeping | A View From Behind the Stumps | Wicketkeeping.co.uk . It has gloves and pad review, and hints and tips.
    You nick it, i'll catch it then i will send you the scorecard for the next year.
