By now, you probably have a fair idea of the quality and variety of bats that DSC has to offer in the 2022 season. The list above mentions only a limited number of DSC bats, but there are many more bats on offer this new season. No matter where you stand on the batting scale, you can always find a DSC bat that meets your requirements. However, making the right choice would depend on various factors, the most important being weight. The shape of the bat, with that perfect curve, and the thickness of the edges, are also very important. The length, shape, and thickness of the handle should make you feel comfortable while gripping the bat. Finally, the wood quality- the Willow has from 4-5 straight grains up to 15 straight grains. More the number of grains better is the bat quality and higher is the price.
Buying that perfect bat is not an easy job. It’s not that you buy the best and the costliest bat, and hope to become one of the best batters. You need to understand your technique, your skill level, and your batting style to make the right choice. Wrong bat selection can adversely affect your batting in the long run. DSC, with its wide variety of cricket bats, gives you the maximum options in choosing the right bat.
