BATTING / WICKET-KEEPING Glove SIZE GUIDE
The measurement to take here is from the start of the wrist to the tip of your middle finger (the longest one) in a straight line. Gloves can also vary slightly from one manufacturer to another, but this guide should help.
BATTING PAD SIZE GUIDE
The measurement to take here is from the centre of the knee cap, to the top of the foot
(where the tongue of your shoe would fit). Sizes can vary slightly from one manufacturer to
another, but this guide should give you a good idea.
HELMET SIZE GUIDE
A good fitting helmet is worn with the peak protruding horizontally from the line of the eyebrows. It should feel firm but comfortable with no excessive movement in any direction. To measure, run a tape measure around the middle of the forehead, just above the eyebrows, around the side - just
above the ears to the ‘bump’ on the back of the head. Over time the internal padding will mould to
the shape of the head. The guide below should give you a good idea.
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HEAD
1. Use a soft measuring tape to measure the circumference of your head about 1 cm above your eyebrows. Make sure the tape is at the same
height all around your head when measuring.
2. If you do not have a soft measuring tape, use a string in the same way as indicated above to measure your head. Then lay the string straight and measure it with a ruler.
3. If you cannot measure the head of the person who the helmet is for, measure the inside of a current helmet or a hat they wear frequently.
