Bat Making / Re: Practicing Bat Making
« Last post by cornishchris on Today at 06:17:21 AM »
Thanks gents, will get a few pieces, it's just getting used to the tools. I'm definitely getting better but easier to just go for it on a bit of pine, particularly with a draw knife as once you've taken it off that's it!

Agree with above 05 attack had pace accuracy bounce and both swings

True man
Snow
Willis
Botham
Underwood


Anderson
Harmison
Flintoff
Jones
Swann

My picks

Nice to have cricket debate mr cat

Anderson didn't play in the 2005 series. Neither did Swann. Nevertheless, agreed. 2005 pace attack was the best all conditions pace attack.

Bats / Re: Are certain bats suited to certain quality balls
« Last post by Silver Bullet on Today at 03:22:21 AM »
It seems to me that league balls which are not bat breakers but are not the best and have an initial hard lacquer and plastic sound off the bat are more suited to Indian type bats.

IV witnessed ton and ss bats hit them miles and the bats have high rebound off the ball.

But the high quality Keeley bats don't react to them nowhere as well however react well to the higher quality leather ball.

Observations from this season ... Anyone disagree ?

Partially agree.

The English bats do ping massively, but do tend to break a lot easier with cheaper quality balls. I tend to go through atleast a couple of bats a season, whereas some of my team mates have had the same TON or BAS bats that they've been using for 4-5 years.

Is there any chance you can post pics of the bats on here. Can only fond the 1 pick of the lot on eBay

No worries if not, are you willing to sell some individually

Look good

But I think you could find better and at similar price if you shopped around. End of season sales coming up soon too

Anyone currently using these or have used before?

Looking for a traditional cuff pair of gloves for over the winter and next season and these look great quality and at a bargain price.

I donít even mind the mad design too much either  :D

More topics like this please, and less about whether certain brands of bat hit different qualities of balls further or not...

England / Re: T20 Blast 2018
« Last post by SD on Yesterday at 08:58:56 PM »
Sums up the extremely low quality of the t20 blast where Jerome Taylor is somersetís Overseas player, yet doesnít get a look in at the CPL. Go figure.

No wonder the ECB are in talks with the CPL about not having the tournaments overlap

I see that the CPL are very transparent about the salary each player receives.   Does anyone know how the salaries in the Blast compare?
