SG Cricket Bats: Buy From a Brand that Has Defined the Indian Cricket Scene
As India’s largest and most trusted cricket gear manufacturer, SG has always had vibrancy, energy, and youth in its DNA.
SG was born in 1931 when brothers Dwarakanath and Kedamath Anand set up Sanspareils Company in Sialkot. SG manufactures a wide range of sports gear. The brothers started SG after apprenticing in RICHIE sports, which belonged to their uncle.
In 1940, the Anand brothers established the Greenlands Company to allow the company to export during the testing times of World War II. This is how the company SG came to be, and the initials in its name stand for Sanspareils Greenlands.
Between 1947 and 1950, India got its independence and was partitioned. The company was moved to Agra and in 1950, settled in Meerut. The brothers started building the business from scratch once again and this grew into the SG Company that we know today.
When buying an SG cricket bat, consider the following points to make the right choice.
Size of the Bat
A bat consists of two parts: the handle and the blade. Based on the batsman’s height, the size of these parts varies.
Will You Use a Tennis or Leather Ball?
If you will only play using a tennis ball, then buying Kashmir willow tennis cricket bat is the way to go. However, if you will play with a leather bat, then you need a thicker bat.
The Bat’s Sweet Spot
The bat’s sweet spot refers to the part of the bat that is thicker than the others. In this area, the bat’s performance is maximized. It is the area that generates the maximum timing on the ball.
A bat can fall under one of three sweet spot categories:
Lower sweet spot
Middle sweet spot
Higher sweet spot
If you play the front foot a lot, the lower middle spot bat is ideal. If you prefer the back foot shot, then you should go for the higher middle spot bat. Every cricketer plays with both the front and back foot. So the best advice is to go with what feels right.
Cricket bats are made with a special kind of wood known as willow. There are two types of willow: English Willow and Kashmir Willow.
English willow is mostly preferred by bat manufacturers because of its high-performance stroke effect. On the other hand, Kashmir willow is harder than English willow and recommended for people learning to play cricket and those using a tennis ball to play.
Number of Grains on the Bat
Grains are the lines on the plain side of the bat. The number of grains is directly proportional to the age of the tree. More mature trees provide better performance. Experts recommend players to go for bats with 6 - 10 grains.
The Shape of the Handle
Cricket bat handles can either be oval or round.
Oval handles stop the bat from spinning in your hands when making a shot. This ensures maximum use of the cricket bat’s face.
Round handles are best for players who like using their bottom hand when hitting and lifting the ball.
