Going out onto the field next season i will feel like a geriatric gladiator!  Knee pads , elbow pads , knee brace , skins tights , goggle style sports glasses , back brace ( only occasionally,  when back is tooo far gone ) , kinesiology tape covering vast expanses of my legs , back , elbow .
Ive worked out that when i bowl i slip the knee pads down to my shins...feels better . Also , i will have to get used to taking off my elbow pads /giving to umpire each over during a spell....as a spinner who sometimes bowls 15-20 overs straight that will be a right pain in the proverbial !

All of this reminds me of a bloke i played cricket with for a couple seasons when i first started grade as a junior . We were in 5th grade and the teams spinner was a 62yr old fat guy who we called 'the judge' ( he was a barrister ) . He couldn't dive or even bend down to field the ball . He would wear soccer ( sorry English folk...football ) shin guards -the hard plastic type . Whenever having to field anything off his own bowling , or at gully when fielding , he just stuck out a leg and blocked the ball with a shin . Opposition batsmen would shudder and giggle when hearing the horrible , painful sounding , noise it made , not knowing that the judge's shins were well protected . I always looked at him and thought 2 things : 1) i want to play cricket until I'm his age . 2) i wonder how old I'll be when I'll have to adopt his fielding methods . .....well , I'm getting closer , that's for sure .

Last three nets I've batted in (including the CBF net) I've been hit in the plums.
The left one is now more like a coconut and I'm walking like John Wayne!

Ah well when batting at least getting hit focuses the mind.
