This tells me you've never had to suffer through a game of cricket, Tom. A batter is good at standing there looking like someone dropped a mattress on him, before moving the most un-aerodynamic bat designed by science forward 5 inches, to deflect a ballaround the stumps he's protecting, hoping against hope they don't get knocked over, or else he'll have to go inside and eat theose bloody aweful cucumber sandwhiches, someone thought would be a good idea ot cut into triangles. They're snacks with geomatrical thoughts above their station.
And all that padding does is make them run like a duck and doesn't cover anything behind him.
Also, I know plenty of cricket players. It wouldn't surprise me if Cricketbat doesn't have diabetes.
