    Can I rack you guys brains?

    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.

    County Durham, Bishop Auckland mate. Do you have any idea on the grading?

    I think you must go to Chor Bazaar. Cheapest place to buy stuff in the whole world

    Sorry, I don't. And as I live in SW London, there's no point in recommending my local cricket specialist store.

    Good luck anyway.

    Afraid I've got little to no idea about the North East marketplace too.

    My personal favourite kit suppliers are B3 cricket, but at 100+ a pop, it's probably a bit much for what you're currently after.

    It's a pity you live in the NE and not the NW because I have quite literally a shed full of cricket equipment. The previous owner of my new house ran a cricket club which became defunct about 5 years ago and I inherited all the club's equipment. I haven't had time to go through it all but at a rough count I would say I have at least 60 brand new cricket balls and another 50 in good condition. Pads, gloves, wicket-keepers gloves, stumps and a few bats. So if you visit the Widnes area let me know and I might be able to help.
