    Wearing a sweatband for batting

    I batted quite well last year, haven't found for in training yet this season, so would wearing a long sweatband in matches and training like pietersen or bell make me look cocky or poser-ish?

    Thorpe to my knowledge wore a sweat band while batting especially in the SC at least I remeber a video where he took off his helmet and the band was there.

    If it makes sense to use it and keeps the sweat out of your eyes do it.

    A red piece of cloth like Waugh Sr. is manlier. Kohli wears sweatbands, doh.

    I recommend wearing a head band and mirrored sunglasses and no helmet

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Desmond Haynes was a big sweatband man.



    Edit: I'm assuming you're talking about sweatbands for the head. I've no views on sweatbands on the arms

    Surely if you were worried about looking poser-ish (or poseur-ish) you would not be using a red font?

    Anyway, you could go the Robin Smith route and wear the long sweatband but no bat



    But, IMO, better to go classic like Gooch

    So you are saying you are a sweaty git, I hope you shower after matches and don't wait till you get home, wouldn't want to sit next to a sweaty pongy mess in the pub afterwards.

    I think you are putting your efforts into the wrong area anyway. Clearly your first priority should't be perspiration control but should be establishing an anthem for your club side.

    I think you should get some compression pants and a vest too. They're a good option in case you're too lazy to stretch every evening to avoid injury. You'll still get injured, but you'll look tops!

    How about you grow your hair long and tie it up in a pony tail while you are batting I have always admired players of that ilk and thought them very stylish.
