    My steering wheel gets very cold, so I wear gloves until the car warms up.

    There are three types commonly used in cricket.

    Wicket keeping gloves - analogous to a catcher's mitt, these may be worn by only one member of the team, designated as the wicket keeper. It's the keeper's job to catch everything the batter misses (or gets a faint edge on), hence the padding. If anybody else wants to take a catch, they use their bare hands - another reason why cricket is harder than baseball.

    Keeper's inners - these are worn under the keeper's gloves, for extra protection and to prevent the overgloves from becoming sweaty.

    Batting gloves - in cricket, the bowler is actually allowed to hurt you with the ball. No free bases, all you get for free in cricket if the bowler (pitcher) hits you is a bruise. These gloves protect the hands when holding the bat, which is why they're padded on the back.
