    MS Dhoni's batting pads

    Hello, this is my first thread on PakPassion.

    I want to discuss about MS Dhoni's pads. Does anyone know where I can get these, or how he made them like that? They look really cool with the different shades of blue and the faded appearance.

    Thanks everyone.

    The faded appearance just comes from them being worn in.

    He's used them all his life that's why they are faded.

    Razzaq or I think Afridi had similar worn out pads.


    Swing it like Akram, whack it like Afridi, live it like Inti.

    Possibly, but I remember Dhoni using these exact types of pads since his debut. He switched colours when india's dark blue uniform was introduced in 2009.

    check out this video, he's got these exact pads in a light blue colour - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EyOtAb5255s.

    Good point, he must have spray painted them blue then? It would explain the logo at the base of the pads being obscured

    Yeah probably, it looks like he spray painted the lines in the pads (what's the name for them?) with dark blue, and his pads came in a bit of a lighter colour. Dhoni did have a bike collection, so this spray painting business seems true.

    Nah, paint will run into those areas when you spray paint them so it will be a bit thicker there, plus the paint doesn't get rubbed/worn away because those spots aren't exposed to contact during play/transport.

    Yup, Morrant Ultralite pads, painted blue with an Adidas logo stitched on to keep the sponsors happy.

    Does the morrant company just design their pads that way (if its not spray paint?) I've looked online but can't seem to find them in blue or in any colour. The only thing I can see is that these pads were custom made specially for Dhoni and Tendulkar.

    They probably make coloured ones for the likes of Dhoni and Sachin when they attach Addidas or SS logos on to them. Sachin and Dhoni both use Forma helmets as well which are then attached with SS logos.

    I've always hated those pads. I personally think they look absolutely atrocious.
