Kit watch 2017
« on: April 11, 2017, 05:52:34 PM »

So I have joined a team after moving to the US last July and we just started playing the T20 competition last weekend. Couple of surprises when I looked around at the kit on display. Bats included a grainy Aldred Velocity, nice GN E41 LE, GM Six6 (grade sticker removed, but sounds great), a big, light and full shaped BDM and an old GM Hero 909. Biggest surprise was the bat in the team bag: a Screaming Cat! Quite banged up and the stickers removed except back toe one, but the response still great. Will get pictures up when I can.

First time seeing one in flesh, albeit a very used one, but the balance was striking. I would love to get it cleaned up to try to preserve the life span. Last place I thought I would come across a Screaming Cat would be in Washington DC in a team kit bag.

East coast got a short season due to weather. California, Florida and Texas got a lot of cricket throughout the year.

We played our first practice game this past Sunday. In North East, we usually have season that starts in Early April and ends around mid of October.
