Reviews / Screaming Cat Professional Replica By Laver & Wood
« Last post by waikik on Today at 05:43:31 AM »
Before last season I was getting a bit toey, it had been a while since I purchased a new bat. I saw Laver & Wood
had a 15% discount on their replication service, so I decided that was enough reason to get my fix and would get a
replica made of my Screaming Cat Professional to add to my collection.
   I sent an email and got a reply from Anthony, who was top bloke and easy to deal with. He said that they didn't
need the bat just some photos, measurements and my specs for a replica to be made (I had my doubts). I bit
the bullet and took quite a few photos and quite a few measurements and sent them to Anthony. 
   As usual I pick the best of times to order a new bat cause L&W were doing their big move to Napier. Although the
band saw made it, it was in several pieces and they had to get a new one shipped in. I finally received my bat and
it was dam close replica and the finish was superb. In the hand it felt great, the pick-up and the balance was light
for the weight, just as if Julian made it himself. To achieve what they did from the information I sent does the boys at L&W credit.
After a season of use it performed as well as I could have hoped, the middle was massive and forgiving and quite a few shots
sounded like I was cracking whip not a bat. I wont say it's better than the Cat but I wont say it's not either, lets just say I would 
hate to live on the difference.

Ok - so if Denly replacing Dawson, (and assuming the rest of the starting Xi stay the same) where will he slot in the batting lineup?
Doubt he'll make it in time to play tomorrow so they'll have to bring in a seamer, probably Tom Curran. After that, if his spin really is good enough these days that he's in contention as a bowler then presumeably he slots in down the order at 8. Which seems a bit of a waste for a bat who's possibly lined up to walk out in the top 3 in the tests, but what can you do! Given that Dawson batted 9 in the last game I'd probably rather have seen Parkinson get a go to be honest, but hard to argue with getting Denly involved early.

Anyone use the icoachcricket website? Is it just me or is this the shittest and most pointless website on the planet? It looks like it was designed in the 1990s, and the content is utterly abject.

I am, and yes I do think it is pretty poor.  The stuff for young kids just starting out has some use but beyond that you can find better stuff on YouTube

Dawson out and Denly coming in.

I notice the lack of a mention of Chris woakes 3 wickets on a wicket flatter than the M4 in the second game. Not a bad effort I thought

Ha did he confirm it was a TK verbally

A few of the Pak players use TK seem to be their chocie
U can tell by looking at it. The shoulder style etc. Even the blade itself. U can easily tell no pakistani made bat looks like that

With only stone making his debut in the series itís got me thinking...

How many players have Northants produced for England in the last few years seems to be a fair few,

Willey
Stone
Duckett

Iím sure thereís more too

Swann?

Panesar?

Jack Brooks never quite made it, or Richard Gleeson, but both have been mentioned in dispatches.
