According to Gomme [1894], Bandy-Wicket is Cricket played with a bandy (a curved club) instead of a cricket bat. This name was evidently once used in Norfolk and Suffolk.

"Bandy Wicket" was also used in the US.


Alice Bertha Gomme, Traditional Games of England, Scotland, and Ireland, Volume 1 (London: David Nutt, 1894)., page 17.


Protoball has the sense that bandies were heavier and sturdier than cricket bats.
