  • Cricket bats are natural product and two bats can never be exactly the same. We stock hand selected English Willow bats and have strict quality control over the selection of these bats. However, some sellers do not hold good stock and occasionally sell it for cheaper even below the cost price to get rid of the low quality stock. You will find with such a stock, there could be several issues including but not limited to the weight of the bat being heavy, pick up not being balanced, presence of knots on the face, grains not being good or some cosmetic issues. In such case, we try to match the price but can’t guarantee, however, we do our best for our customers varying from case to case.

Please Note: Unlike our competitors, with every bat we also do provide $50 worth of Free Knocking, Free full Bat cover and heavily discounted Match Ready Service and an unbeatable customer service so you make a huge saving here!
