Wicketkeeping Buyers Guide

playing for keeps

Gray-Nicolls is proud to work with the premier Wicketkeepers in the cricketing world to produce the best in class equipment that the game has to offer.

So whether you are an established ‘keeper, or new to the role looking for your first gloves and pads, we’ve put together a guide to which gear is best for you.


The question should be who isn’t wearing Gray-Nicolls. Cricket World Cup 2019 Jonny Bairstow is donning the Oblivion Stealth in 2020, while England man Ben Foakes will be rocking the Powerbow Inferno.

We also boast county stars Adam Wheater, John Simpson and Steve Eskinazi, while the likes of Peter Nevil fly the flag overseas!


If you are just beginning your journey into wicketkeeping, you have come to the right brand – in fact we are confident that once you go Gray-Nicolls, you’ll never go anywhere else.

If this is your first pair, we suggest you try out the Powerbow Inferno 100. They are lightweight, with traditional ping pong grip. These will allow you to see if you are a fan of going behind the sticks, without too much commitment.


Now that you’ve been a ‘keeper for a while, you are probably looking to take your game to the next level. This season, there is just one glove for you – the Oblivion Stealth!

The Oblivion Stealth gloves are made of ultra-lightweight premium leather, with a leather- backed Octopus grip. They come with a traditional square cuff, with extra HD foam padding – giving you serious protection against quick bowling.
