Well when you have stunning Gray-Nicolls Black Legend Batting Pads which you will probably never use (T20 theory to one side) of course you need a pair of matching gloves. Now unfortunately they do not make and have no plans to make their Legend Batting Gloves in Black which left me looking for a pair of Test Level Batting Gloves that matched the Black Batting Pads.
And guess what ….. say hello to these beauties!
One can only assume that batting in a Test you need gloves that are light, comfortable and protective. OK, I get that is a requirement of any batting glove but at Test Level the ball is harder and faster, you can bat for hours, even days (although probably not for more than 10 overs in a pair of gloves at any one time), but you hopefully get my point: if I was playing in a Test I assume I would be happy to wear these gloves.
They are comfortable, very comfortable.
They have great protection, not least because of the sliding nature of the gloves and the inbuilt support bar which honestly something I always thought gloves should have – some form of carbon fibre type shield built into the glove. Well 40 years later I have my wish ….. Glide Guard, it is brilliant!
Of course they match the Black Pads and are also unlikely to get used as well but you know I don’t care right?
