So who will be using a box from last season or older?

If theres one thing you need new each season its a box for the Crown Jewels.

But am I in the minority.

Got the new Ayrtek one which is great protection and built to last! Would like like to see a cooling gel pack incorporated into the inner....may end up looking like a cod piece though!

I have been using the same box for more than 10 years.

Writing that down makes me feel a little sick

Mines over 10 years old and going strong.

Definitely sounds gross but i got one probably square on flush in the jewels last season and it did me proud!

In 30 odd years of playing (at times at a high level too) I've only been hit once, that way by a slow bowler so not too bad. I like to think I'm technically quite solid and I don't like the thought of having to run with one in. It's also why I don't wear a thigh pad or helmet.

Judging by this thread @Ayrtek Cricket is retiring on the profits from new box sales this year!! 😉

Modern days thigh pads are a magnet for caught short leg off inside edges, the ball seems to ballon off them like its supercharged

Older members of the forum have have used a wet towel which would surely kill the ball dead, and the thigh bone

As for batting without a box, got hit twice in the same innings and was poleaxe for a couple of overs, without one on I dread to think...

Mines probably over 20 years old only been hit a couple of times can't be bothered with a thigh pad due to the bulk used to wear one on the outside of the trousers but it was a magnet for comments from the opposition
