That's not Cricket Direct's URL, I would be very very cautious about giving your card details to anyone that you come across via a random Facebook ad. Will be plenty good sales on from reputable companies in the coming months.

I didn't think it was, and the prices were too good to be true. Hopefully no one gets sucked into it.

GM Players Editions for 237, yeah right!

Unfortunately it is a scam site.

I wouldn't ever buy from cricket direct so ignore the sale when I saw it. Stick to forum sponsors and a very small select number of retailers. If in doubt...ask CBF.

Of something looks too good to be true... It isn't.
