Choosing the right cricket bat might seem like a daunting task. We are here to make it easy for you. There are a number of things that you should look at when buying cricket bats online.

With this guide, you can determine the different cricket bat sizes, qualities, features, services, and materials that suit your needs.
Let us discuss some of the factors that determine a bat’s profile
Cricket bats are made of either the Kashmir Willow or the English Willow.
Kashmir Willow Cricket Bats
Kashmir Willow cricket bats come from India and are generally heavier than English Willow which comes from England. The grains of Kashmir willow cricket bat are less pronounced and found on the surface of the bat. Kashmir willows are usually much heavier in nature than their English counterparts. The primary reason for this is that the Kashmir willows have higher density and moisture, leading to heaviness. The sweet spot of these bats are less dynamic compared to English willow bats. Kashmir willow bats are less expensive compared to English willow bats. Hence these bats are used by junior level and beginner level cricket players. These bats are an absolute favorite of cricketers playing with tape ball, hard tennis ball or soft tennis ball as they generate amazing power.
Grade of the Willow
English willow bats are graded according to their quality. Companies like SS cricket divide bats into 6 grade where Grade 1 is the best and Grade 6 is the least. Similarly GM cricket divides bat into 8 grades giving each grade its own unique name. In general we can divide into four grades.
The Grains on a Cricket Bat
The Grains represent the age of wood used to make bats. Each grain indicates 1 growing season. Cricket bat grains will often differ from cricket bat to cricket bat. A cricket bat between 6 and 12 grains is a good indicator of quality cricket willow. Cricket bats with 6 grains are likely to be slightly softer than 10-12 grains and therefore take longer to knock-in and reach optimal performance initially. Ideally all top end bats need to have 7 to 10 straight grains. This will give a balance between life and performance. Anything more than 10 will give top performance but less life and anything below 7 are ideal for team cricket bats where one looks for longevity.
Cricket Bat blade
Is the main body of a cricket bat. The rear of the cricket bat blade has a pronounced outward curve (Spine of the cricket bat) that provides weight and rigidity to the cricket bat while the front of the cricket bat blade is flatter and provides the main striking surface. The thickness of the cricket bat blade is important, it can be flat face or rounded.
Cricket Bat Sweet Spot
Is the centre of the cricket bat blade, although batsmen use different parts of the cricket blade to play different shots. Cricket bat sweet spot is that part of the bat which provides the maximum ping and faster travel speed to the cricket ball once hit from that area or zone of the bat. No cricket bat will give good ping at the bottom and the handle area. Contrary to assumption that high end bats will give you ping even at bottom is incorrect. You will be called master of cricket if you can time all your shots using the sweet spot.
Cricket Bat Bow
Is the curve of the cricket bat from the tip of the handle to the end of the toe. Some cricket players prefer cricket bats with a larger bow. Professional players prefer a larger bow and thicker edges to meet the needs of competitive modern day cricket. The size of the cricket bow can have an impact on the pick-up of the cricket bat, as an increased bow can often result in the cricket bat having a heavier pick up. Some bows are higher or lower down the bat depending on batsmen's hitting style, or to reflect the pitches which you play on. A low bouncing wicket in Northern England or India may suit a lower bow compared to the dry climate and bouncy pitches of Perth, Western Australia.
Cricket Bat Edge
This increases from the shoulders of cricket bat and maximises at the sweet spot, generating supreme balance with an extended sweet spot that covers the entire width of the blade. Cricket bat edge gives the overall shape and profile of a bat. If a bat needs to be light, then the edges have to be thin.
Modern cricket games revolve around the blade’s thickness. A flat face profile levels out the striking area so that more mass is retained at bat’s back to maximize the power profile while a rounded face is more preferred by traditional players. A slightly rounded face not only gives a familiar look but also offers a less expanded profile. Kookaburra bats offer both profiles.
Cricket Bat Toe
The bottom of the blade and the part of the bat that rests on the ground is the Toe. The toe on all cricket bats are vulnerable to breakage. A cricket bat is so designed to help the batsman strike the cricket ball 6-8 inches up from the bat toe, in the centre of the blade. Whenever a batsmen faces a "Yorker" delivery at the toe end, the impact of a moving bat meeting the speed of the ball can be very high, thereby causing the wood to dent or split. Toe breakage is a very common problem and even the most experienced batsman can end up breaking the bottom. However a professional bat repairer can repair the bat by using guts and plasters. The toe can be either Flat or Round. Cricketers also use a Toe Guard which prevents moisture or dew from entering the toe of the bat when matches are played on turf surface. Many cricket bats now come with an attached toe guard.
Cricket Bat Spine
This is the back face of the cricket bat. The spine is the line that runs down the centre of the cricket bat's back starting from the handle running down to the toe. The Spine of a cricket Bat can be High, Mid or Low. A High and a deeper swell helps to give the cricket bat a larger sweet spot. The cricket bats with a mid spine have the sweet spot at the mid position. The cricket bats with a low spine have the sweet spot at the low position of the cricket blade.
Scallops are meant to maximize profile by allowing the apex to be extended without dramatic increases in weight. Additionally, scallops maximize the edge profile and reduce the blade’s rotation in the off-center hits, hence minimizing power loss.
Cricket Bat Handles
The Handles are attached to the body of the bat via a woodworking joint called a splice, essentially a V-shaped plug. Sarawak canes are used in handle along with rubber, cork or mixture of both and inserted in the sawn centre and glued together. Then they are put into lathe and turned into basic handle shapes like round handle and oval handle.
Bat handles are also divided based on their sizes Long handle and short handle. Long handle cricket bats are used by cricket players with 6+ feet height. Short handle cricket bats are widely used by cricket players. It would normally be advisable for cricket players to choose a short handled cricket bat for increased control.
Cricket Bat Grips
The Grips are found over the handle of the cricket bat. Cricket bat grips are made of rubber and composites. Cricket bat grips come in different varieties based on design patterns. Some of the cricket bat grips include chevron cricket bat grip, zigzag cricket bat grip, Plain cricket bat grip, dynamic bat grip, octopus cricket bat grip and fish scale cricket bat grip.
Another essential part of toe is the Toe guard. Toe guard prevents moisture or dew entering the toe of the bat when you play on turf surface. Many cricketers mistakenly assume that the purpose of toe guard is to prevent rubbing of bat. Many cricket bats now come with a toe guard already attached.
Best Cricket Bat Size to Pick
Generally, young players and teenagers grow at about 2.5 inches per year. Therefore, it is recommended that a player checks that their bat is the right size for them at the start of each season. It is also important to choose a model that is of the right size and correct weight. Playing with a bat that is too heavy or too light affects how a player times the ball correctly, which impacts the performance and enjoyment of the game.
