The cricketing world still fondly remembers the West Indies pace battery. It simply revolutionised the game and Joel Garner was one of the torchbearers of that pace battery. His size 15 boots still are a point of wonder amongst those who visit the museum. @Aditya Bhattacharya
While the bats and the game in itself has gone through a change, the gloves too have seen their share of changes and improvements. The museum at the Somerset, which is located in the ground itself, has that evolution on display. @Aditya Bhattacharya
If Richards’ Test cap finds a place in the museum, then so is that famous Ian Botham willow from England’s much-talked about 1981 Ashes triumph. @Aditya Bhattacharya
Somerset has had a great history of being a home to some of the cricketing greats, including the likes of Sir Ian Botham and Sir Vivian Richards and the museum puts on display memorabilia of two of their biggest stars, amongst many others, including Viv Richards cap from his first Test. @Aditya Bhattacharya
While the cricketing equipment is obviously pivotal, so is the kit bag. The Somerset Cricket Museum also an early kit bag on display. @Aditya Bhattacharya
The cricket bats over the years have undergone a huge change to reach to a point, where the bats these days have become more powerful than before, allowing the batsmen to score big. The museum has a collection of the bats over the years. @Aditya Bhattacharya
Somerset Cricket Museum better known as Priory Barn Cricket Museum in Tauton has plenty to offer for cricket fans, who love their history. @Aditya Bhattacharya
