The GM Pickup Index

Cricket Store Online is gearing up to launch the latest range of GM cricket bats. These bats are sure to be a must have for any cricketer who values his skills as a batsman.

One of the best features of the latest range of GM cricket bats is the fact that each bat comes with a ranking on the GM Pickup Index.

This is what you need to know about the GM Pickup Index.

Weight VS. Pickup

The weight of the cricket bat is of importance to the batsman but not nearly as much importance as the pickup of the bat. The pickup of the bat is the way the weight is distributed through the bat. If it is balanced the pickup will be lighter than the actual weight.

Control VS Power

GM has created a superb index whereby each bat has been given a rating of between 1 and 5. These rankings are suited to different types of players. For example, if you are a Mahela Jayawardene type player that has very deft touches and manipulates the ball into gaps, then you would be a control type player. Whereas, if you are a David Warner type player you would be looking for a bat that is more on the power side of things. If you are a touch player you will select a cricket bat that is close to the one on the ranking system, if you are a power player you would select a bat that is closer to the five.


Buying the right type of bat for your style of play is like buying a well fitted shoe. If the bat is a proper fit to the style of batsman using the bat than the bat will improve the performance of the batsman. The anomaly to all of this is of course Sachin Tendulkar who was of course a touch and power player with a very heavy bat.
