I bat down the order and use inners but have never had a pair of gloves last anything near 5 years!
What kind of state are your gloves in?

There are holes in each thumb where the leathers been worn away, but no reason to throw them away. After about 5,000 runs, they're just getting nicely worn in.

I had to throw my old gloves away because the holes had all joined together. I've never used inners, I like to feel the bat as closely as possible.

Even the cheapest gloves nowadays are better and more protective than top of the range stuff from a decade ago. The gloves I wear, which are basic GM gloves from 2010 that are getting slightly ragged but are still perfectly functional, are better than anything test batsmen wore in the 90s.


It's now 2018, 2010 is biggest part of a whole decade ago.
Maybe time for a new pair?  ;)

Yes, I'm considering it. Maybe at the end of the season in the sales.

If you play cricket long enough you'll eventually get a few injuries. I've had broken ribs, permanent nerve damage in my thigh, broken finger, broken nose, I got a bruised ankle whilst playing in Barbados and couldn't walk for a week. Its just part of the game. I got hit on the head once by a bouncer and hooked the next 4 balls for 6.




Sorry , but that's just a very untrue statement re cheapest gloves today are better than the best gloves from a decade ago ! Case in point , cheapest gloves today often /mostly don't have carbon/plastic reinforced protection on any finger , let alone all fingers , and the leather quality in dodgy cow leather. You're statement is even more incorrect when i can remember buying g.n (ultimate 750?) gloves ....their first triple split finger ,top of the range ,gloves , when i was in year 10....so that was 1994. They were awesome quality , sheeps leather , plastic reinforced beauties. They were miles better than a lot of mid range gloves  today for both comfort and protection.
Perhaps the fact you only buy gloves once  a decade leaves you a bit too out of the loop to make such comparisons ?

BAS players gloves are amazing value. Great protection and quality. Those Red Ink X2 gloves look great value as well. Either of those would be my shout.

Uzi had them a while back, the BAS players gloves named as Sachin gloves I think. You could also look at the current CA plus 15000 gloves. Great price and used by test players.

Ss ( dhoni 7) , sm (vigour) , spartan (dhoni/bairstow) , kippax (stoneman), mrf (kholi) , bdm (sachin) , are all essentially the same as bas players gloves . I bought a stack of the sm's and ss (see start of this thread) from online stockist and with shipping included , assuming you're buying a few pairs and shipping costs is a wee bit more spread out , they cost me around $35-40au each (so like 15-18 quid or so ?). If you are put off from buying from ols then maybe uzi or kippax or even eas are options .
