The NB DC 570+ cricket bat is a premium English Willow cricket bat. The semi oval handle along with the mid sweet spot make it a superb cricket bat for players playing on all sorts of surfaces and with vertical or horizontal bat shots. The pick up and weight distribution on the NB DC 570+ cricket bat is absolutely superb, this makes it a great cricket bat for players who are playing their shots with finesse or the really big hitters. The finishings on this New Balance cricket bat are also superb including the grip and toe guard. Extremely well priced for a bat of such high quality.
