Hi chaps. I'm just starting to get into playing cricket and have just joined my local club, small team, low level. I'm looking at getting my equipment now. What I want is gear that is good enough to play without problems but doesn't need to be top notch stuff. Any suggestions on best/cheapest places to go?
Also, I have seen some really nice bats that are "Grade A willow". Is this the same as Grade 1 or is there a difference.
Thanks very much.
