Batting Gloves in UK

Batting gloves are essential for cricketers, providing grip and protection during gameplay. They also help absorb sweat, preventing the gloves from slipping and ensuring a comfortable grip. Premium quality batting gloves, such as those from DSC, are recommended for all cricketers.

Cricket Batting Gloves Terminology

There are several important components of cricket batting gloves, including finger padding, finger cuts, palm, strap, and sweat cuff. The padding material used in each glove can differ, with options such as foam and cotton available. Leather palms offer better grip and comfort than cotton, though they are often more expensive.

Straps are used to tie the gloves to the player's hand to prevent slipping, while sweat cuffs absorb moisture during play.

Batting Gloves Buying Guide

Choosing the right pair of batting gloves can be a challenge. Keep the following factors in mind when shopping:

Right-Handed or Left-Handed: Choose gloves that fit your preferred hand, whether you are right-handed or left-handed.

Size: Properly sized gloves are essential for comfortable and effective gameplay. The table below provides a rough guide for sizing:

Small junior: 16.5 cm

Junior: 17.5 cm

Youth: 19 cm

Adult: 21 cm

Professionals: 22.5 cm

Remember to check the sizing chart before purchasing gloves, as each player's hand size is different.
