CRICKET BAT RANGE
THE SWEET SPOT EXPLAINED
Every batter knows that there is a special spot on a bat where the shot feels best. It sometimes feels so good that there is almost no sensation at all when the bat hits the ball. The sweet spot on a cricket bat is defined as the point where the ball receives maximum acceleration. Some players prefer cricket bats with a large bow whereas others don't. Increasingly, professional players' preference is for a larger bow and thicker edges to better meet the rigors of the modern game. The size of the 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 batsman's hitting style, or to reflect the pitches which you play on.
Suitable for players who like to play horizontal bat shots, cuts and pull shots. Lighter pick-up.
Suitable for players who like to play off the centre of the bat. This accounts for 80-90% of batsmen.
Suitable for players who like to hit straight. Preference to play ground strokes and off the front foot.
