WELCOME TO the Good Gear Guide for 2011. This year we’ve done something different. First, we took the review out of the capital and visited champion county Nottinghamshire for the day, which gave the whole process a fresh perspective. Second, alongside the usual top-class club players (and they are seriously top-class this year), we have recruited a current first-class batsman to test all the bats sent for review. He works in the shadows to protect his identity and sponsors – but he is an expert, a kit geek, it’s his job and he knows it. He is … the Don.
