Hi-Vision Cricket Sight Screens
Cricket sight screens are a hugely useful bit of cricket ground kit for clubs and schools playing at all levels of the game. The aim of using a cricket sight screen is to aid the batsman; helping them to see more clearly the bowler and his/her delivery whilst also serving to minimise distraction from spectators.
Cricket sight screens are typically solid white or black in colour depending on the type of match and level of play. Black screens are more commonly seen in limited overs formats such as One Day Internationals or Twenty20 Internationals where the ball used is white; offering strong contrast. In test matches, where a red ball is used, cricket sight screens are usually white and these are probably the most commonly seen at clubs and grounds around the country.
In addition to varying in colour, cricket sight screens can be made of a variety of materials – including PVC dipped mesh or tarpaulin stretched over a large wooden or metal framework, traditional wooden slats or more modern plastic composite slatted styles. Dimensions wise, cricket sight screens are generally 4.5m high and between 4 – 8m wide depending on the manufacturer options.
Choosing cricket sight screens
When it comes to investing in cricket sight screens, increasing numbers of clubs and schools are opting for those made of modern polypropylene or mesh over frame construction as opposed to traditional wood. These materials have a number of benefits over wooded screens – not only are they lower maintenance (wooden sight screens need regular re-painting and repair work to stay in decent condition) but they are also much lighter, allowing them to be more easily moved around the ground.
