Us cricketers live for the summer – the winter is a long, old slog.
In fact, the cricket season provides us with the very inauguration and curtain call of summer itself.
As we edge into June, we should be prepared for sunnier climes here in the UK.
You may well have bought most of the cricket gear you’re likely to need for the season, subject to anything breaking unexpectedly, but when the sun’s out, the products showcased in this article will help keep your performance levels high during the mid-summer months.
