Well Gautam Ghambir has changed the stickers on his bat from Reebok to MRF. Sorry but I couldn't find a picture.

He's been using MRF stuff since the South Africa tour yo.

Puma sponsored players are wearing some rather snazzy editions of the Calibre half spike also.

Unfortunately CD I haven't seen these particular ones for sale on any online retailers.

The standard Calibre spikes look like this.

Shehzad Still Using The MB Bats.

You mean pads, right? I think this is because Shahzad was signed during World Cup preparations hence I don't think he was sent out Boom Boom pads.

Also Boom Boom sponsored him for Accelator range which is Blue/Black

Opps. Sorry About The Bat Thingy.

Hmm. He Is Even Using Some Other Brand Gloves Even When He Was With MB.

Hmm. He Is Even Using Some Other Brand Gloves Even When He Was With MB.

What happened during NZ tour when he was sponsored by MB was that he took only one pair of MB gloves with himself to New Zealand and when his hands got sweaty he switched to these MIDS gloves.

I'm surprised that Boom Boom haven't sent Shahzad Boom Boom stuff

SempreSami
15th February 2011, 21:12
Notice how he's still wearing MIDS gloves as well. Boom Boom prolly haven't got their gear to him yet.

Good spot Sami, this certainly wasn't there before.

I find it difficult to understand why Amla wears proper cane pads in Test matches which are heavier compare to these ones, surely it make a difference when playing in them..

Personally I'm not in favour of these edge stickers, I mean when you get nick/edge these stickers pop out am witnessing this with my Salix.

I wonder when will BAS change there soft design, the current one was launched in 09 if I remember it correctly

A lot of people here use AM shoes, shame I don't have one :(

For Salix I think the problem was that the edge stickers were over scuff sheet fold on the edges.

I think with Kook it would be fine.

Took the small ones off lol

umar akmal still using old GM FLARE bat.....but one thing that is sure is that,he is using genuine GM bat(as u can see from the red cross mark on the shoulder of the bat),also seems to have gotten rid of the MASURI helmet,THIGH GUARD is prolly GN

SempreSami
16th February 2011, 20:10
That's this year's Calibre line, what McCullum's using.

I don't buy that Umar's bat is a long blade with a super short handle. I'm slightly taller than the Akmal brothers and proportion-wise, that Flare just looks like a regular short handle to me.

Cover Drive
16th February 2011, 20:50
Thanks for the pictures Ummer, for pictures just put and paste the link in between them.

Sami, I agree with you. Umar Akmal, is not using long blade and super shot handle. Handle and blade length both look standard to me.

Did you also notice how big his bat look? The profile on Flare is impressive I would say.

McCullum was using Kinetic against Pakistan and personally I like Kinetic much more than all of the others.

Also for McCullum they change the pads colours to the range he is using right? Because these pads are only in Iridium range.

SempreSami
16th February 2011, 22:05
Certainly seems to be the case, a fair few companies will change the colours of things to match up.

Quick Single
16th February 2011, 22:19
If companies such as Kookaburra make new ranges for the Ashes, which only two teams participate in, then why can't they make new ranges for the World Cup, which is a global event. Surely it would be better marketing scheme?

Cover Drive
16th February 2011, 22:34
QS Bhai, which Kook range are you talking about?

SempreSami
16th February 2011, 22:34
England's winter tour coincides with all the new gear going on sale back home, that's why they all started using new stuff during the Ashes.

Quick Single
16th February 2011, 22:57
If you look at the 2009 series in England I'm pretty sure they brought out a new range for the Ashes, because I saw a picture of it on cricket supplies forum.

SempreSami
16th February 2011, 23:02
That was a couple of bat models that weren't all that special tbh.

Quick Single
16th February 2011, 23:05
Yeah I know that's my point, why make a couple of not that special bats for a series involving only 2 teams when you can make pretty special bats for a global tournament.

SempreSami
16th February 2011, 23:09
Kookaburra's main markets are in England and Australia, which is coincidentally the two that play in the Ashes.

Quick Single
16th February 2011, 23:14
Yes, maybe so, but they could widen there main markets, and make a lot larger profits.

Although you are old but I see you just have started to post so welcome to PakPassion, I hope you enjoy your stay here.

Absolutely, McCullum's Puma range loos the best (in Puma's Range) and personally I find the design of pads McCullum wears to be the best in the market.

The second gloves Shahid Afridi is wearing look good actually and they look of a good quality at all!

That Boom Boom bat in last picture has a good profile I wonder who's is it. Looks similar to Tendulkar's profile but with higher positioned middle.
