What tip of gear do you have to where when you play a Cricket game.
Nowadays it is advisable to have a helmet/face guard, even in social games where batters often can't bat, as there is always one bowler who thinks he is Dale Steyn. You can hire these, and the gear below as well.
A groin box for males, to protect the sensitive bits, was always essential.
Batting gloves, as you can easily be hit on the fingers even by a slow bowler.
Batting pads are advisable, but many people in social games get by with just one, on the front leg.
And of course a bat.
When fielding, only really the wicket-keeper needs special gear, pads and big special gloves. You can't avoid injury when keeping without gloves.
