Pet hates

What shouldn't really do, but really grinds your gears?

Currently, for me, it is youtube reviewers demonstrating 'ping' by belting the ball off their ceiling, as if somehow those of us watching will think that the bats a cannon, rather than that they are just hitting the ball harder than most people do when just knocking a ball up on a bat.

Release your rage...

THANK YOU.

Literally the most frustrating thing! Anyone can hit a cricket ball 6 ft in the air if they hit it hard enough lol

I know that is probably directed at a certain Youtube channel but one of my favourites along those lines is from Aldred. One definitely hits the ceiling harder than the other regardless of what he says ;) :)

If I wasn't so lazy I'd quite fancy making a spoof bat review video, could be some fun to be had.

Cherries, dings or a riding grip.

These things should all be removed/sorted as soon as possible. If I see anyone using a bat with a badly applied grip I assume they're a savage...

I'd recommend using a light Bola ball for added ping  ;)

That to buy a cricket bag remotely, you take a leap of faith. Why can't we see images of the bag open?!

You're missing a trick mate, why even bother with a cricket ball? Golf balls are where it's at - maximum ping!!

Think I spend half my time after getting out fixing teammates bat grips, whatever they ask me to or not.

To be fair when you take his natural (mis)timing into account its a pretty decent hit!

Ive visited said lounge, hes a tall fella and the roof is low. On the same pilgrimage I visited the bat garage which has a higher ceiling, the handled cleft I picked out and he made up suddenly lost the in garage ping during transit. A very good bat all the same.
