I've worn prescription Oakley Jawbones when fielding for the past few seasons and use a range of lenses in them to suit the conditions but the cost is '. This year I've had to start wearing glasses to bat in and so I bought a pair of Oakley Crosslink which cost me 120 with prescription lenses and they are great

I wear Oakley Crosslink glasses that I got from Glasses Direct Boutique for about 120. They're great for playing cricket in.

Oakley crosslink look good too , not as much top-down coverage as some , but if thats your prefered shape , then they look a great balance between quality and price .

Yes. I've been really impressed with them so far for all sports. They're also good for cycling.

Watching this thread with interest as I look for excuses of why I can't hit the ball or catch! :) I'm sure it is mostly in my mind but I am struggling to pick up the ball with contacts and seem happier with glasses for some reason. I'm sure an eye test would help aswell ;)

Any other good "sports" glasses besides Crosslinks?

Mr Vettori seemed to use normal glasses but I'm not sure I fancy that in case they get hit

I wouldn't fancy it either, top edged one into a glasses-wearing keeper's face a couple seasons ago and he didn't look like he enjoyed it at all... Very lucky escape for him tbh.
