Thanks guys, glad you enjoyed it!

Size wise, I should have said in the video but completely forgot - I'm a UK 9 and I've got UK 9 in both models. The 2019 shoe is a more snug fit - when I first got them I needed to put some stretchers in for a couple of days. Since then, though, I've liked the fit. The sizing on the 2020 shoe is bigger; visually the shoe is a bit larger when looking at them together and I haven't needed to stretch them. I don't know if that's accurate for all of them, or if it's just that I happened to get a 'small' 9 in the 2019s and a 'big' 9 in the 2020.

I did get some rubbing on the heel thanks to the stiffer heel cup but fingers crossed it goes away as they wear in.

Good to know, I wondered if that might be an issue

Got to keep 2m away. If a few stumping get missed so what.. surely if you are mad keen to play it doesnít really matter ? It wonít be competitive so just friendly stuff

Like one of the lads below, canít see many sides putting anything but Sunday friendly standard sides out if at all this season

That maybe the case but my reasoning purely is the likelihood of the transmission of the virus from batsman to keeper is very very negligible when the batsman is fully kitted up plus helmet etc...and the government have already said it can't be transferred by sweat. Keeper is already approx 1m back when you take into account the crease and behind the stumps.

I realise you are going to say it isn't a risk worth taking but I simply don't see the risk that's all.

How did the keeper go to spinners 1m back? Did any stumpings get missed?
That just seems a bit much if you ask me (I am a keeper).
Had less of an effect than I anticipated (Iím an offie) but when batting it definitely made me more confident in getting out to the spinners.

The recommended social distancing here has been reduced form 2 to 1m

Hi mate, how do you do this?

@sevman26 you put the towel back from where you are hitting the ball. We have a clothesline that comes out from the house so I put the ball in the sock on the line furtherest from the house and the towel close to the house and hit it as hard as I want into the large towel. It works pretty well.

Yes, that's possible. But would it make shining the ball too easy? And what about spinners who use saliva to get a better grip, don't they?

Great review mate, I'd agree with your comments having worn both.

I did get some rubbing on the heel thanks to the stiffer heel cup but fingers crossed it goes away as they wear in.

Have NB shoes always come up tiny in size? I ordered a 10.5 and couldnít even get them on.

I found I had to go a size bigger in New Balance than any other make. This wasn't just cricket shoes either!
