Why care for your bat?
A surprising amount of effort and precision goes into crafting a quality cricket bat. They are made from fibrous willow reeds which are then pressed to form the shape of a cricket bat. It is then recommended that a wooden mallet or ball be used to strike the bat repeatedly to strengthen it and improve durability - this is known as the ‘knocking-in’ process.
To ensure your bat maintains this level of quality and to ensure you’re getting the best performance from your bat you’ll need to keep it in tip-top shape.
