Title: What Equipment do International players have
Post by: adam1312 on May 10, 2012, 07:47:43 PM
What equipment and how much of it will international players take on a tour for example the ashes in Australia.
Also what clothing match and training will international players take on a tour with them?

They take the same sort of equipment that the average village cricketer will have, although it'll usually be higher quality and possibly custom designed to fit the certain needs of that individual cricketer. I don't think there is a fixed amount, I think it depends on the length and type of tour along with however much the player wants or sponsors are willing to provide. Usually I think it is 2-3 of each item of protection and then a large selection of bats.

Not really sure about the clothing as I haven't seen anything about that although I'm guessing most of it is handled by the teams rather than the players(apart from some exceptions such as caps).

I could be wrong on these things but this is what I have seen from videos etc.

Mate, you have asked this exact same question before and got it answered. Why do you need to ask it again, you couldn't get on your county age group team last month, are you suddenly off to India with the senior squad in the winter?

There it is.... tantamount to bringing up an old topic, or posting multiple topics. Both of which are frowned upon on here!
