Hello everyone have seen this section on forums and some of you guys really know the equipment

Can you please tell me or give me advice on what to buy and where from ?

What do i want?

Bat , Pads , Gloves (Got the helmet and good spikes)

I don't play at top level so the fastest bowlers i will face will probably be between 70-82-3

Budget about 250(can go up a bit and would prefer lower :P)

Batting style :- Good timer play with the ground don't hit sixes that much but depends on situation

Opener on one down

What ever you recomend please give me a site or shops name so i can look for it

Thanks a lot in advance looking forward to good suggestions by CD Bhai and others :yk JazakAllah

I admire your passion bhai. :)

If you are looking for Pakistani bat I would recommend to you AS V3/V10. http://www.pakpassion.net/ppforum/showthread.php?t=111890, THIS IS THE REVIEW.

H Bhai,

Personally I'd never recommend you Boom Boom because I find them to be a bit over priced and find them expensive comparing to others as the quality is more or less the same.

MB, is a very good choice and I would recommend it. I myself use MB Malik stuff and trust me they are top quality and very good stuff so I would highly recommend it (check my reviews if you wish to).

I have never dealt with cricmall so I'm not sure how reliable they are.

It is always best to get stuff directly shipped from the factory in Pakistan as that is the cheapest option. I'm not too sure if MB Malik people take orders and ship to UK because they have there own store in UK but that is very expensive in my opinion but you can get Bubber Sher bat and pads along gloves close to your budget price.

The golden rule is always to buy a bat after feeling it. Since you are in Cricket country I would suggest drop down to a local store or even MB Malik and see what they have and try there bats because it is not necessary and important that what you like in pictures will feel good in your hands.

Since you're an opener/top order player I would recommend you to buy a light bat because you depend a lot on your bat movement and speed.

I'm sure I have left many questions unanswered so please don't hesitate to ask if you have any

Hope it helps

Ask the seller to send you pictures of the actual bat once you get them post here and then we'll tell you if its authentic or not.

Sounds like you made a good choice with the MB bat.

Personally, I would try and buy English softs as opposed to Pakistani simply because I've been using both as of late and can comfortably say that the fit of English softs is much better. It feels as though many Pakistani softs are made for fat kids :P

Why is that bro ?

Seems like the pads are just inherently wider. Of course, I haven't measured them but of the GM and Kook pads I've used in the last 2 weeks, the fit has been substantially better than the AS and Ihsan pads I've used.

Perhaps it has something to do with the shape of the pads, but the English softs seem to feel more streamlined on the legs.

That said, I think Pakistani gloves are certainly not bad as long as you get a pair with HDF in the fingers.

Yup, Pakistani pads are a bit wider and they basically don't wrap well around your legs. However, the moudled ones such as Bubber Sher pads are good and they kinda wrap well around your legs.

Second is the knee bolster, having that makes the fitting better around the knee area.

Pakistani gloves are not that bad, I have tried all Pakistan brands top of the line gloves and the best ones I came across are Bubber Sher ones follwed by CA 12000 and then Ihsan Inferno's.

You really won't find any genuine English gloves, all of English brands gloves are made in India.

Did you get your GM 909 D30 pads and gloves yet ?

Also which Kookaburra pads did you use ?

Yea, most if not all English softs are made in India which makes me wonder, why can't Pakistani or Indian gloves be as well designed?

I actually received my GM pads and gloves a couple of weeks ago, they're pretty good so far.

As for Kooks, I used my mates Blade Runner pads which felt quite nice. Not as light as some of Kookaburra's other pads, but very comfortable and well made.

Actually Indian softs such as SS are really good and SS softs are one of the best in the world and they make softs for many companies such as Newbery, Salix, Mongoose and many more.

Many people who run a business themselves say that MB Malik latest softs were as good as SS and are easily comparable with many top brands.

Pakistani softs are improving day by day and you can see the significant changes in the softs.

Genuine pittard is not used in Pakistani gloves because the market in Pakistan is not high meaning people there don't buy top end stuff like people here do. I have been to trails in Pakistan in summer which were held at Qadaffi Stadium and more than 85% of bats I saw were low end ones.

I'm glad you're liking your GM softs.
