This season is my first, I wasn't really looking for any serious equipment.
I played tape ball until now and just bought equipment locally from people. So far I have Slazenger pads, new CA bat, AM helmet and soon will complete the kit with the missing material, thanks to help from a local PakPassioner ;-).

and thanks, will be indoor practicing till the Summer :)

Which CA bat did you buy?

It's called "CA Crescent" made from Kashmiri willow.
Not any really expensive professional bat, but something to get me started in hardball.

Wow! Seriously you got ripped off and paid a lot. Since it is a Kashmiri Willow it shouldn't have been more than $30 maximum. Where did you buy it if you don't mind me asking?

However, as long you are happy with the bat then every bit of it is worth.

Actually it was given to my brother as he preferred heavy bats a while ago. Its not a great bat though. Its somewhere in the basement. I really don't care about it, its a bit heavy for me.

I have never tried it but the bag is quite big and I am sure I'll be able to fit everything in it.

The picture is missing CA 12000 Plus pads which I no longer use so I never included them.

Few questions (hope you don't mind);

- Is that genuine Pellarra or second Ihsan you bought along Inferno 950? Which bat is that Reebok one?
- Is that baggy green hat? If so where did you buy it from? Also same for test shirt?

I think it is Ihsan. Dhump bought two Ihsan a while ago from UT Sports in Karachi so I am guessing it's that one. Apart from that if you zoom in you can tell by the scuff sheet. The type of scuff on that bat is supplied by UT Sports.

Thank you CD I am glad you like it and no nothing really to mind about.

- No its not Pellara just another UT sports bat with pellara stickers on it (Shakeel Special) I sold one of my Ihsan bat it was Ihsan Opener. Reebok is given to me by a friend from Sialkot its a fine bat and used it for a while.

- Yes it is Pakistan Baggy Green bought it from Ebay. Not the best quality but fine I was not able to get if from anywhere else.

I had a bat that Younus Khan borrowed when he came to our club in Jeddah after Umrah two years ago. He gave some advice to some of the batsmen and played some shots. After he was done with it my friends told me to get it autographed, so I did (I'm not particularly keen on autographs generally, seems a waste of time). Unfortunately I lost that bat when we moved to Canada last year...it was an Ehsan bat

How would you compare CA 12000 Plus LE, MB Malik Bubber Sher LE, and AS V-10 with each other?

It all comes down to preference on your sweet spot and pick up. In terms of pick up, CA12000LE has the best among these three. Grains structure (straight) and sweet spot is extended on MB LE. ASV10 has extended sweetspot as well with thick edges and great pick up, however, its a bit on heavy side.

My personal preference is CA12000 LE then MB LE.

Sounds fair. Although I was expecting someone to bring up handle topic but its fair. Many have said AS seem to have weaker handles althoughj I don't know how to differenciate betweena good and bad :(.

Depends on which model you are looking at....CA 12k TRD is more expensive than Ihsan Inferno 950 but not by much.

Boom Boom is a UK based company but bats are made in Pakistan by Ihsan - so you are basically paying for the stickers rather than the make when it comes to boom boom.

The Rahul dravid bat was awesome. Got his original autograph on it. The chairman of my brothers company invited Rahul at dinner. Rahul gave his original bat with autograph to them. That bat is taken by my bro and he is in UK. Sorry can't post the Pic.

Ahh okay, it would have been great if there were pictures, but nevertheless don't worry about.

It depends which Indian bat are you talking about and which Pakistan bat you are talking about. I have seen some Indian bats with poor balance and have seen some with good balance and same applies for Pakistani bats.

Ahh okay, it would have been great if there were pictures, but nevertheless don't worry about.

It depends which Indian bat are you talking about and which Pakistan bat you are talking about. I have seen some Indian bats with poor balance and have seen some with good balance and same applies for Pakistani bats.

i will post some pics of shahzaib's bat soon.

Nahin dosta never sold any SS gloves. Your right Mjolnir is bakwaas and GT 335 is very good shape but bats such as newbery are not good enough for me. I know newbery will perform reasonably well and is durable but one thing it wont have is as good ping or sweet middle like a Pakistani or Indian bat. For example If I play a defensive push with an AS or SS bat and the ball races away for boundary and with an English bat you cant hit boundaries which such ease. I very much rely on the bat then with my own skill/power so the bats stroke has to be top notch.

Its not only TDCA, in fact, happens with others too. With white ball coloured pads are compulsory whereas with pink ball you can use white plus coloured pads.

Actually did some browsing and it looks as though the company that manufactured padskins is out of business. They sold for about 13 pounds which seems fair enough.

Yes, Richard got bankkrupted or closed it. However, there is one called clads and they are in Australia.

Bali Sports is 5 minutes away from my home so will drop there and buy from there.

Actually it is basically made out of nylon one used in baselayers etc so that is the one which is used to make those.

It wouldn't be more than $20 at Bali Sports.

26th February 2011, 10:49
I'm not too bothered by grips staining gloves, else I would have switched to white grips. Although I will when I get a Flare/Icon as I have a thing with keeping the stock colour on the handle.

The pads get wiped down every now and then, and I go over it with a sports shoe whitener if necessary.

The 2010 gloves were £39.99, quite disappointing to see they've gone up in price again this year.

You haven't really decided one out of Flare and Icon ?

Depends on how much coin I can acquire, bats and a new helmet are the top priorities.

Plan is to get a Flare or Icon 909 and a navy blue shell to replace the dented Masuri I have, send the Hero off to be refurbished and sent back stickered as either an Apex or a Luna, and at some point later in the season potentially get a GM+ 808 version of whicher of the Icon/Flare I go with.

Not sure but will you be able to coupe with the heavier bats after buying a light weight in the beginning ?

SempreSami
26th February 2011, 11:21
There's a chance I may yet get a bat that weighs 2lb 11oz again, buying from a shop means I'll probably end up adopting the Matthew Hayden method of swinging them a few times to decide and ignore the actual weight.

As long as I stumble across a GM+ bat which feels somewhat like the other in my backlift, I won't mind.

Cover Drive
26th February 2011, 11:25
In that case I think Icon would be the one which will have light pickup despite being GM +. But it all depends on the day and how they feel in your hands.

I held an Hero the other day and felt it very bottom heavy although I prefer low sweetspot bats but that Hero wasn't good in terms of feel at all!

SempreSami
26th February 2011, 11:39
The higher middled bats all feel quite similar to me, although the Hero certainly feels a bit more like a sledgehammer than other lower middled bats like the Kook Ice and various SS bats.

Methinks it was the switch from using predominantly blue and green that did it for me.

Looking back, I can see they've taken inspiration from the past with the model name running down the back of the bat, as you can see with the Maestro being used by Steve Waugh back in 1989.

I had never seen these stickers until now, they were before I was even born.

As time goes by many companies are adapting old style like GM with what you pointed out, Slaz to those V100 etc models, GN Legend stickers which I think resemble old era GN bats etc.

So old classic stickers are being given new touch to improve the look.

Can't say for sure, the shape of the new V100 will probably be different to the classic V100 from when I first started playing cricket. I recall one of my brother's friends owning a 'Waugh Zone' branded V100 as it was the bat that Mark Waugh used. In fact my first bat was a V800, which Waugh also used later on in his career.

There are few oldies at my club so few of them do have these old bats. One of them has V10 and even today that bat goes like rocket, literally!! It is flat like a paper and has no concaving, bow whatsoever.

Although it weighs around 2.4ish but it still does feel heavy in my hand, perhaps this is because we are not traditional style user.

What surprises me the most is that these old bats are still lasting and playing very well!

One of my club mate has Graham Gooch's Gray Nicolls Dynadrive and that bat has absolutely zero crack on facing, amazing condition!

Bag is bit heavy but it really keeps the stuff organized inside.

I use these shin guards during fielding, regardless of which position I field (my typical position is point/cover) ... It has good support around ankle + they keep the shins safe in case you miss the ball while collecting ... they are very light, I hardly feel their weight

Jazakallah Khair

I got Oaklays from Dubai for around 325 USD (1220 AED) ... yes they are expensive in Dubai vs US ... But I loved them the moment I saw them. Ordering online was coming to same price so wasn't really great idea. Honestly they worth every single penny; with such strong sunlight they keep things so clear for you ... just amazing

I love Oakleys too but I wear a glasses but I will be sorting out issue for it soon InshAllah.



You can order Oaklay with prescribed numbers; being based in Canada it would be quite fast to get them delivered ... In fact I wanted to have a customized Polarized Iridium ones with Green & Bit of Yellow shades + my name engraved ... but locally Oaklay don’t do custom, only online ...

I haven't taken any photos of the GM as it has 5 grains, didn't look aesthetic but I have a feeling it will be good.I have packed everything away. I have grown to like the SAF more,the pick up is excellent for the weight and for a low middle.

Thanks bro,The first one was a 2.9 ,It was too good before it broke,I had only two net sessions with it. It was a faulty willow with internal crack apparently. The hassle of it breaking and the replacement was a bit of headache though.
The BAS was bought from UZI sports.It's an academy sized kinghitter I would recommend it anyone who wants a good bat brand new under 80 quid.

Thanks mate !

I just got the Scat 2 days ago so it’s too early to say until I try it in nets (needs oiling + knocking too) ... but its pickup is amazing, the balance is great & I can feel that middle is super extended

So far I can easily say that Newbery's feel is much better than CA; I would say due to its balance. Newbery's sweet spot is different than CA obviously but this bat has amazed me with its performance, the ball goes like bullet effortlessly ... not only me but people who have listened to the sound it makes have been really impressed too. And mind you I just had 5 net sessions with it; even its Hammer Edged, I still knocked it with mallet before nets ... I am pretty sure that it’s still opening up, not fully there yet

Now this all is expected to change once I have my Scat ready ... Looking forward to see how Scat rolls over the Newbery from my rankings :D

Ah okay I have seen lots of BAS here and they are fabulous bats I would say they are best bats from India, much ahead of SS, SG, SM etc in my opinion.

hello Aman, I haven't used the SS Ton premium yet but have been knocking it and playing shadow shots with it.It's a very low middle loads of concaving and a huge edge (40mm).It pings well enough. I think the profile is same for all SS bats (Coverdrive or Knightrider can confirm this please).I bought it from Asad bhai and as usual got a good bat.Its on sale in uzi sports at the moment.

Assalamu alaikum everyone, very long time visitor but first time posting (apologies in advance in case if I am repeating anything that you already know). As per brother Uzair's request, here is my little kit. Nothing interesting, but Masha Allah some of you brothers have some amazing kit. Incase any of you like anything that you see from my kit, ask any questions and I'll do my best to respond asap.

I doubt that i'd need to write any profiles any of my equipment. I think everyone has covered all that you see in my pictures. However, I haven't seen much written about Bradbury. So here's my 2cents: I bought my Bradbury S-players straight from Bradbury in Somerset county. Even though it only has about 8 grains, but the bat is sweet and I'd highly recommend. Mine weighs about 2.9/10lbs. Single grip. Pick up is neither bottom nor top heavy. It’s more a bit like mid heavy. It has an elongated sweet spot, starting from low middle to high swell. It will suit a person that likes to play their shots all around the wicket. Including your pulls and drives. Overall alhamdu lillah, I am content with it.

GM Icon LE, is the best balanced bat. It’s immaculate and plays really well. I actually picked up my bat and all of my GM gears from the actual manufacturer. So I had the rare privilege of picking a pro blade. In fact Watson was there at the same time, that's when he was having his Icon stickers replaced with Flare stickers. In the beginning he used Icon bats but came to the manufactures warehouse to replace his stickers only.

MB LE, I only received it a few days ago, so I don't have anything to say about it, at least yet. But Insha Allah I am hoping it will live up to all your recommendations.

Ohh I’d highly recommend the Shock Doctor Men's Ultra Supporter with Ultra Carbon Flex Cup, (I also have the Titan Alloy Flex Sports Cup, but its too heavy and would not recommend it).

Apart from what you see, I do wear a pair of Okaley Radar Range with Polarized Black Iridium lenses, Insha Allah I am on the process of getting G26 replacement lense (incase if any of you have any contacts for Oakley, please let me, appreciate your information in advance). I read on this thread about Polarized Red Iridium, this is actually not the best choice for red ball cricket, in case if all of you are playing with a white ball, then please go ahead with brother ‘KashifJ’ recommendations, but if any of you are playing with the red ball, then G26 lenses are highly recommended because of the green hue background, which stands out well with the red ball in play.

I hope this satisfies. P.s. My GM Pads are new but I think brother Uzair might have covered feedback on these pads.

JazaakAllah Khair for posting the pictures on my request, I appreciate it.

MashAllah you have brilliant kit I'd say, it is concise but brilliant in my opinion.

Thats great to hear, so do you know if your Bradbury was Australian made or Indian made?

Your Icon is absolutely peach, I'd say it is one of the best if not the best Icon I have ever seen :). I agree with you on Icon being one of the best if not the best balanced bat out there in the market.

I had those pads before selling them to a forum member and I also have 2011 GM Original LE pads and I have said this in past and will say again that I find 2009 to be better than 2011 ones. This is not based on looks or anything but on material and workmanship. So I rate them very high and I'd say they are brilliant pads.

I'm fan of Oakleys too but I wear a glasses so I can't wear them yet, maybe I will buy prescribed ones if not get contact or laser done.

If you don't mind me asking, how come you didn't use your GM pads yet? :20:

Also if you don't mind can you give us a side-by-side profile shot of all three of your bats? I'd appreciate it :).

hi again,
Thank you to Quick Single, Ammo, Littlemaster64 and CD for your compliments and comments. I am sure there are plenty of other Icons that are much better. I remember seeing a recent one from another brother on this site, and it looked immaculate.

CD- Bradbury was bought in Somerset, England. From my limited knowledge, I don't think Bradbury makes any of their 'bats' in Ind. It used to be only made in Somerset, England and now in Fremantle, Western Australia. However their soft goods are from partially from Ind.

As per your request i've attached a side-on picture of all three bats.
GM Pads, I've only tried them at couple of indoor practice sessions, but unfortunately I found them to be a bit too big for me, so its back in the closet, where its been sitting ever since just about 1.5 years. Any takers?

Cover Drive
6th January 2012, 05:14
Thanks for the picture, I appreciate it :).

That Icon compared to 2011 and so on Icon seem to have less concaving.

Bardbury profile looks good too! Minimal concaving, high sweetspot perfect for Australian pitches I reckon.

Oh okay I have heard Bardbury were made in India so its good to hear your isn't.

I remember when I got mine they looked and felt big too but then I wore them few times then I got used to them and they felt amazing then. I'd suggest you to wear them few times then you'll get used to it.

Or if you are crazy like me maybe sleep in them for few nights :))

I count 23 bats, 10 pads, 3 helmets, 2 bags...how many gloves CD?

Do you have trouble choosing a match bat?
Do you ever find you don't use a bat for a while, come back to using it and say "I forgot how well this bat went?" For me its the opposite, "That's why it doesn't get used" LOL

Correct, there are 20 in the picture I think while 2 are at a shop for sale.

Definitely have a trouble mate :)).

LOL :)) Actually newer one gets a nod while the older ones are pushed into corner for example the bat sticker as SS I last used it 16 months ago. Even CA haven't used it for a year or so now.

Amazing collection bro.CD bhai how do you choose your match bat for a certain day?. Lets say you scored a hundred with a certain bat ,Would you give it preference over all other bats or would you choose a different bat next match?.

Its not only TDCA, in fact, happens with others too. With white ball coloured pads are compulsory whereas with pink ball you can use white plus coloured pads.

Am looking for them as well, heard Bali Sports have them but didn't get a chance to drop by and check how much they are going for.

Unfortunately the shop that had them closed but another shop has them but I haven't been to that shop yet :facepalm:

InshAllah I will buy them soon!

Pakistan I'm not too sure to be honest because I haven't seen them in Pakistan.

Waisay those AS V10 pads are brilliant, have seen them and they are superb quality.

Nice kit...Looks good..Specially the Albion and the Adidas shoe...:)

No Offence...but you don't seem take care for your bats...
(Except the SS,which looks good)..:P

You should clean them up and apply new grips...
You can remove old sticker marks by using sand paper and nail polish remover(Just ask your mom about it)....:19:

If you can manage cleaning them up then your kit will look much much better!:D

Thanks for that information. I don't apply new grips because the shops are far too away from my house. I don't really get time. There is one shop, but their QUALITY is not good.

Amla does not need grips. I am in fact surprised to see he uses pads. He is not a mere mortal like us, he is Hashim Amla. He can bat barehanded with no grips if he wants to. Right Amla? :D

Let me tell you the true story.
I met him 2 years back. Seeing me, he also started playing cricket. And that's from the end of January, 2011. Whereas I came playing cricket when I was about 5(probably). When SS1 started knowing cricket, he surfed the internet for cricket kits and sponsorship stuffs. He knows a lot about these vague stuffs..but in real life, he can't play that much. Now he is a tailender. He is a brilliant guy, and learning very quickly. So, I'm not worried about these SG pads and stuffs. I just focus on game..
