    Your Choice of Hat When Playing.

    Taking from Goughy's thread, what are your preferences when out in the field?

    I decided to slip in baseball cap there, because a number of clubs use them these days (in Australia at least), especially for one day games.

    Personally, I'm a floppy man, although I'm not averse to anything. Except the nude nut, which doesn't feel right.

    No hat maybe?

    I've always been a cap man.

    I wear a Harlequin(sp?)-style cap when batting, bowling and fielding. Never take it off as soon as get to cricket.

    Anyone who goes in to a cricket match hatless, and isn't a West Indian player from the 80s, instantly loses my respect.

    I personally just where my club cap.

    Everyone have "caps" though, and not the traditional cricket hat?

    I've got a baggy which I wear for club games, but our association makes us wear baseball caps with sponsors name on the side when we play rep games. Voted for the baggy anyway.

    btw Nude nut is no hat

    I have one of those big cane surf hats. Best hat for a white bloke who burns easily.

        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    We get given both at our club, but I wear the traditional cricket hat. And as I said, I wear it for the entire match.

    I wear a baseball cap, in order that it frame my incredibly sexy mop of hair.
