    Default Why do they wear American baseball caps at cricket?

    We watch, with interest, the Black Caps playing the one day matches and I wonder why they all wear American baseball caps instead of cricket hats?

    At one time the cricketers wore sensible white broad brimmed hats that kept the sun out of their eyes and off their ears and neck.

    We go to watch our grandson playing cricket on a Saturday morning and all his team wear American baseball caps except for one young player who wears a cricket hat.

    Unfortunately that seems to be the way it is these days - just about anyone and everyone who wears a hat wears an American baseball cap.

    There just is no individualism any more. It seems that no one wants to be different. They all want to follow like sheep.

    the all round hats, yes they help with the sun, but suck when it comes to trying to move your head and catch something

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    I take no responsibility for the accuracy of any media links I quote.

    Not being a cricketer I did not know that. Perhaps it is because I am a traditionalist (and anti American) that I prefer the all round hats. And although I do like the uniforms they wear when playing other countries, I do prefer the Whites.

    You could say the same for Yankee lovers like Zippity.
