Buy Cricket Bats Online
Cricket bats are used by batsmen in the sport of cricket to hit the ball. The bat consists of a cane handle attached to a flat-fronted willow-wood blade. The ICC states that the length of the bat should not be more than 38 inches and the width should not exceed 4.25 inches.
Cricket bats are usually made from either English or Kashmir willow. Bats made of these materials provide optimal contact with the ball and durability. There are five grades of willow, with 1+ representing the highest quality. The willow wood grains differ from bat to bat. Cricket bats that have six to twelve grains are made from the highest quality willow. Bats that have fewer than six grains take a long time to reach the ideal performance level, while bats that have more than twelve grains tend to be hard and splinter easily on contact with the ball.
There are different bat sizes available. Professional players usually use custom made cricket bats to meet the needs. Kids between ages four and five use size 1 bats, while size 6 bats are used by kids between ages twelve and thirteen. Full length bats are used by kids of age 15 and above. It is also used by professional players, adults and casual players.
