Best Answer

The following equipment is used in cricket: Bat - About the size of a Baseball bat, but with a wider flat surface area used for hitting the ball. In addition, the handle is made separately from the main piece of wood used for hitting. The handle is relatively complex and designed to flex when the ball is hit to provide added power.

Ball - About the size of a Baseball 5.34 ounces, with a hard cork interior, bound with four pieces of leather, with a single raised seam used by bowlers to cause the ball to deviate when bouncing before reaching the batsman. Stumps / wickets - Two sets of 3 pieces of wood (about 28 inches high) placed in the ground 22 yards apart (22 yards being the length of a cricket pitch). The stumps are topped by too small pieces of wood (the bails) which sit on top of the stumps (the top of the stumps are grooved to hold the bails in place). At least one of the bails has to be dislodged (does not need to fall to the ground) for a batter to be bowled. Batting gloves - Required to protect the batter's fingers from the ball, which can be bowled at speeds of 80 miles an hour and above. Pads - Worn by the batter and wicket-keeper to protect his legs from the ball. Helmet with (optional) visor - Generally worn by the batter, wicket-keeper and close catching fielders for protection from the ball. Box - Worn by the batter. wicket-keeper and close catching fielders to protect the groin area from the ball. Wicket-Keeping gloves - Specialized protective / catching gloves worn by the wicket-keeper. Thigh-pad, arm-guard, rib-guard - Not always used (the thigh pad generally is). Depends on the batter's skill level, the condition of the pitch and the speed / hostility of the bowler.

Metal or rubber spiked shoes to provide grip.
