It is Stuart Kranzbuhler's genius to figure out the correct size for someone of Warner's height.

A batsman who is the height of Ben Stokes and is using a standard SH bat, is proportionally using a much shorter bat for his height. I am 5'6'' and size 6 bat or a shorter bat would be, proportionally, the same size bat as Stokes is using. I have said this before and I say it again, bat sizes as we know and use are wrong! Short batsman like myself when we are using a SH bat are actually using an oversized bat for our height.



Don't worry mate , i get it ...and I'm with you on this . I'm 6ft3 and use a sh with inch cut off top ( so like a ssh). It is like a guy your size using a harrow or similar .

Are those Keeley bats? Why is he using a low middle bat?

Could be a B3 bat too.

Agreed. Everyone has a different preference. My friend is 6 ft tall but he likes to play with a super short handle + long blade bat. Its a unique combination but it works best for him. He usually buys a long blade bat with short handle and then cuts off about 2 cms of the handle to get his preferred balance and size.

^ It was a size-6 bat length, with a size-3 blade. This configuration was invented by Laver. My bats were made by MG-2. Marty Graham (@MG2) is a fantastic bat maker!

Still no sponsor, but Stokes with some hit & giggle runs

Quote
England's Ben Stokes scored 93 off 47 balls for Canterbury Kings in New Zealand's domestic Twenty20 competition.

The all-rounder also took 1-17 as Canterbury beat Otago Volts by 134 runs in the Super Smash in Christchurch.

Stokes struck six fours and seven sixes in Canterbury's 217-9, before Otago were bowled out for 83.

Agree with your posts re sizes most  charts state at 5ft 6 an harrow is suitable but find ia full width S/H   32 inches long with the blade 22  inches  long works best.
