Ben Stokes kit watch
« on: December 02, 2017, 05:00:13 PM »

As Ben Stokes is off to play in New Zealand I did wonder if he'd have a new sponsor/

I saw this posted on another thread so tracked down some images:
Looks like Stokes has been happy with the tape on his gear in the Canterbury nets too...










Looks like he's using his New Balance kit with the logos covered at the moment.
How long until he's using new kit do we think?

Wouldn't surprise me, they spent big money on ABD so not afraid to payout. Plus with Stokes being the IPL poster boy it'd make sense.

Thought he might be going to adidas, he's got some of their 2018 shoes on, had one of their t-shirts on in the airport arrival pics that he presumably wouldn't have been able to wear in public as part of his NB deal and they've just freed up some budget space ditching Bairstow

If he just removed the stickers from his existing bats I'd guess they're FC Sondhi made, but they could be literally anything.

As for using a low middle that's obviously what he likes and it works for him

The bats are proportionally size-6 or shorter for his height which explains why he is using mid-low-low middle.

What on earth does that mean?

If a bat is short handle it is short handle. It doesn't magically shrink to a size 6 if the batsman is tall...

Glad I wasn't the only one completely baffled by what that may mean

A batsman who is the height of Ben Stokes and is using a standard SH bat, is proportionally using a much shorter bat for his height. I am 5'6'' and size 6 bat or a shorter bat would be, proportionally, the same size bat as Stokes is using. I have said this before and I say it again, bat sizes as we know and use are wrong! Short batsman like myself when we are using a SH bat are actually using an oversized bat for our height.
