Find out if the bats you use/prefer are worth their price, and if other brands offer the same value for money. 

If you want to have an edge over the competition, you have to train hard, practise batting, and only use the best equipment money can buy. When you are the pitch, you can only rely on two things: your skill and your bat. Skill takes time to learn and perfect while a bat needs to always be 100% ready-to-use.

This is where reviews come in handy. Reviews show you the cost of a cricket bat, if it fits specifications that suit your preferences, or if it is simply worth your money. Basically, it shows some aspects of an object that may be helpful when you are deciding to make a purchase. Most of the time, reviews are also used to compare one bat or brand of cricket bats to another to help you decide which to buy. Comparisons can include anything from prices to specifications of the object.

In reviewing the different cricket bats, certain aspects of the bat will be looked at. This is to make sure that you get the best value for your money, that you are able to make a proper decision, and that other options are shown to you if in case your prefered brand is out of reach. Aspects of bats that will be looked at are:

  • Price
  • Materials
  • Measurement
  • Handling
  • Availability
  • Popularity
  • Professional players that use this brand
  • Cons
  • Overall Rating

Price is listed as the top criteria since this is what buyers usually look at first. They will check if a certain brand is within its spending limit. If a bat or brand exceeds your limit, chances are you will find another brand.

Materials used to produce the cricket bat is usually what buyers look at second. It tells them whether the price of the bat is justified because of the materials used. It also tells them if the equipment is of quality because of the materials used. Questions such as “what type of wood was used to make this?” and “was that type of wood solely used or is it a mix?”

Measurement tells a buyer of the bat’s dimensions. This is one of the most important factors that a buyer looks at in a bat. Bats must comply with game standards. Sometimes, a few millimetres can make the difference between a six and one runs. 

Handling tells a buyer how the bat handles during play, its weight if it is better used against a specific type of throw. This aspect of a bat is important for buyers who are suited to a specific bat (heavy, medium, or light).

Availability will tell a buyer if the bat is readily available or will have to be shipped from overseas. This is often important for buyers who need the bat immediately. This indicates whether it can be purchased from a nearby store, can be delivered within the day, or will take more than a day to deliver.

Popularity tells a buyer if the bat is sought after by other buyers and if the other aspects are favourable. Higher popularity often means that there are plenty of users for that brand or type of cricket bat.

“Professional players that use this brand” will most likely persuade the buyer to buy this brand if his idol uses or promotes the brand.

Cons are one of the most important aspects of a review. If all the other aspects are fine with the buyer but one specific bad detail stands out for him, then more often than not the bat won’t be bought. These negative aspects often more than enough to dissuade a buyer.

The overall rating will take into account everything mentioned about the cricket bat and will measure it against what other people are saying about it.

After listing all aspects of the cricket bat, a side-by-side comparison will be shown in order for the buyer to see which bat suits his preferences.
