Choosing A Good Quality Cricket Bat

I trust that you’ve been playing cricket as a batsman for some time and want to make the switchover from softball to hardball cricket or cricket with deuce balls. Walk into any shop selling cricket gear and you’ll be surprised that many seem to be identical in weight and handling. But step out in the field and you’ll find a world of difference in the way the bat performs, it may be heavier in executing strokes than you imagined, or doesn’t have the proper balance required to send the ball streaking to the fence.

The same can be said of cricket pads for sale because they need to fit perfectly and offer suitable protection as well as unencumbered movement while running between wickets. Coming back to the subject of bats, when you visit a store for one, the pictures of bats on those websites are just pictures, what matters is if it suits you physically. You would do well to read customer reviews, ratings as well as comments on online forums before deciding on one. Secondly, you need to consider the level of competition you’re entering, and choose a bat accordingly. If it’s serious, invest in a bat that is capable of long hard hitting. Backdoor cricket doesn’t require a heavy duty sledgehammer, but if using it professionally is your intention, you can expect a bat to cost between $20 on the cheaper side to about $300 for the high end ones.

You can search for cricket bats for sale that will come at discounted price. You might consider this a big investment; however you need to remember that a high quality bat will last, and will shrug off the fast pitched deliveries with a spring.A factor to consider is the type of ball that the game’s going to be played with. Any competition will have leather balls or polystyrene ones. You definitely will need a heavier bat for combating these. However, if it’s just a friendly game with the neighbours with tennis balls, then buy a lighter bat made for casual use. There’s no use throwing your money away. If you’re a beginner, then chances are that you have not yet mastered the strokes and shots in the directory of a skilled batsman. This is likely to make your bat the subject of much abuse from slices, top edges and erosion of the bottom of the blade while digging out yorkers. You can also expect the bats to behave differently because of the location of the “sweet spot” at different places. This is the place on the bat’s surface which sends the ball flying like a comet across the field if the shot is in full swing. Visit this link for more info on cricket bats for sale.
