There’s a fine line between wearing lightweight equipment and having enough protection...
It’s a balancing act for sure
i found an incredible research doco (email for info) with a calculator that tells you just how much adding weight to a person slows you down, showing just how important it is to choose your gear wisely, especially as a junior cricketer
Adding 6kg of batting gear to a 70kg cricketer running a single in 3 seconds slows you down by 0.18 of a second.
Which means your approx 1.1m slower than without your batting gear on and every kg makes a difference!
