    Can anyone tell me about use of cricket supporter?

    I just want to know whether players wear it all the time or just while batting ?

    When I was a kid I couldn't afford a cricket bag so I just kept wearing my box all the time even in the field.
    UmeshK and Red Hill like this.

    I expect this to be at least a twenty page nuanced discussion where some CW posting careers will be enhanced while others will suffer a setback.

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

    A guy who used to play in my team did wear his in the field on occasion; he had a Michael Clarke-esque ability to get hit there, only while fielding rather than during his spell at the batting crease.
    My sworn enemy:

    Ok can't resist.........

    The only cricket player I know of that has been known to wear a cricket supporter is Virat Kohli that time Jono locked onto his leg and wouldn't let go

    When I was a kid in coaching the coach would insist we wear it during warmups fielding drills and batting. Partly to get used to it, partly because we were clumsy unco-ordinated kids.

    Then we got older and were allowed to wear it as fit. Never wore it in the field then.

    he hasn't been hit that much this year iirc, perhaps that's why he's stopped scoring as many runs
