SG Player Bats - Range Overview

Hi Readers! Welcome to another post on the Cricket Store Online Blog. We hope you read our last few blogs to understand what cricket bat, shoes, or helmet to buy for game days. Keep following our blog throughout the year to stay updated about the latest and greatest cricket gear that we have to offer.

In this blog, we will talk about the types of SG Player Bats and the overall range that we have available in our Cricket Store Online. We’re excited to have the newest and latest SG cricket bats available for sale for you to get ready for this year’s cricket season. Throughout this blog, we will walk you through each and every bat model in detail and provide recommendations for you based on your needs and preferences.

First up, please read our last blog on SG bats to understand all the other SG Cricket Bats we have to offer. SG Player Bats are custom designed as per the preferences of the player the bat belongs to - meaning if you’re ever looking for a Rishabh Pant bat, or a KL Rahul bat, SG Player bats are the way to go. I know when I am looking for a cricket bat, I try to make sure I purchase my idol’s bat or at least purchase a bat that’s made as per a professional cricketer’s specifications. These SG Player Bats are exclusively available at Cricket Store Online only. Our experts hand select most of these bats to make sure our customers are getting the absolute best that SG has to offer.

As of the time of this blog, we’re offering Shane Watson bats, Rishabh Pant bats, KL Rahul bats, and Hardik Pandya bats. We can always try to offer you a customized bat based on the cricketer you prefer. We try to inform you of all the available ranges that we currently have in store and recommend you bats based on your preferences, but if you happen to like a specific bat model that we don’t carry, please Whatsapp us at (609)666-4464 or email us at [email protected]. We have ordered many specialized, customised, and limited edition bats for our customers. For the readers of this blog, we also invite you to join our private Whatsapp group full of returning and loyal Cricket Store Online patrons. We post heavy discount deals on all kinds of cricketing gear in that group.

If you have been to our Cricket Store Online website and searched for SG Player Bats, you probably noticed that there are lots of models available for purchase. Most Player Profile bats are usually expensive and made from premium English Willow to match the real bat that gets used during international cricket games, but these SG Player Bats are also available in budget/economical range. You might have noticed that most of these bats have numbers ranging from 1 to 6, so let’s first explain what this means. We know from our other bat related blogs that Grade 1 bats are the best English Willow bats (professional quality) and as the grade increases, the overall quality of the willow decreases (providing relatively less durability/performance). The numbers on the SG Player bat models relate to the grade of the bat.

English Willow Grades for SG Player bats

  • 2.x = Grade 1 Bat - superior quality premium bats
  • 3.x = Grade 2 Bat - superior quality performance bats
  • 4.x = Grade 3 Bat - higher quality performance bats
  • 5.x = Grade 4 Bat - higher quality budget bats
  • 6.x = Grade 5 Bat - budget bats (practice)

Also, because the increase in grade levels results in a decrease in overall willow quality, the bats also become more cheaper. We don’t recommend using Grade 5 English Willow bats during game day or for prolonged use, but they’re fine for practicing.

All the SG Player Bats come with a specially designed bat cover meant just for that player bat. If the SG Player Bat that you’re looking for (for example a Grade 1 bat Rishabh Pant that he uses during game days) is not available, feel free to contact us. To understand which SG Player bat best fits your needs, let’s walk through all the models one by one:

  1. 1. SG Original Player Bat

    SG Original Player Bat

    This is one of the best SG player profile bats. Made with Grade 1 Premium English Willow, this SG Original Player bat is designed as per player specifications. If you’re looking for the exact bat that any of these players uses (Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul, and Shane Watson), then this is the bat for you. You will not be able to select the player itself from the website, so please contact us and let us know which player’s bat do you prefer, otherwise we will make a random selection for you. These are premium bats with some of the finest balance and pickup that SG has to offer and we highly recommend these bats for your game day needs.

  2. 2. SG HP Cricket Bat

    SG HP Cricket Bat

    This bat is currently available in Grade 4 English Willow, but can be made available in other English Willow grades based on your request. The HP bat is exactly designed after the bat Hardik Pandya uses. Hand picked from the factory, this bat has extremely thick edges and also feels a bit heavy to suit an aggressive game full of big hitting. With a mid to low swell (sweet spot), this bat belongs in the medium weight category and you will need to order it with a toe guard because it doesn’t come with it. Check out this video to learn more about this bat and quickly head to our store for a discounted price.

  3. 3. SG KLR Cricket Bat

    SG KLR Cricket Bat

    This bat is currently available in Grade 4 English Willow, but can be made available in other English Willow grades based on your request. The KLR bat is exactly designed after the bat KL Rahul uses. Hand picked from the factory, this bat has a traditional bow arc profile and offers all round stroke ability. Even though this bat belongs in the medium weight category, it offers the lightest pickup out of all the player bats and you will need to order it with a toe guard because it doesn’t come with it. Check out this video to learn more about this bat and quickly head to our store for a discounted price.

  4. 4. SG SW Cricket Bat

    SG SW Cricket Bat

    This bat is currently available in Grade 4 English Willow, but can be made available in other English Willow grades based on your request. The SW bat is exactly designed after the bat Shane Watson uses. Hand picked from the factory, this bat might require one more extra grip to offer a great pickup as these bats are quite bottom heavy. This is a lightweight bat compared to other player profile bats and they have a mid to low swell (sweet spot). Check out this video to learn more about this bat and quickly head to our store for a discounted price.

  5. 5. SG RP Cricket Bat

    SG RP Cricket Bat

    This bat is currently available in Grade 2 and Grade 4 English Willow, but can be made available in other English Willow grades based on your request. The RP bat is exactly designed after the bat Rishabh Pant uses. Hand picked from the factory, this lightweight bat has an amazingly swift pickup and overall balance to match your game day needs. Unlike the Shane Watson bat, this one isn’t too bottom heavy. We highly recommend this bat if you’re specifically looking for a Rishabh Pant bat and also a lighter bat with swift pickup.
