1. Body Protective
Batsmen and Wicketkeepers wear an abdomen guard to protect themselves from the impact of the ball hitting their body. Leg pads or shin pads are common batsmen, wicketkeepers as well as the fielders stationed near the batsmen.
A helmet, sometimes with an attached visor is worn by batsmen and fielders to protect their head. It is recommended for wicketkeepers to wear protective eyewear as well. The impacts of the ball hitting the wicket can be major with the bails getting dislodged after the impact.
Batsmen and Wicketkeeper have different gloves. The ones worn by batsmen are very thickly padded at the tip of all five fingers when it's compared to thinner wicketkeeping gloves. The wicketkeeper gloves have webbed fingers to help catch the ball.
