GN taking big strides in the Indian market.
« on: July 23, 2020, 08:49:32 AM »

Gray Nicolls seems to be aggressively targeting the Indian market this year. All big retailers and Online Stockists seem to be stocking and selling GN merchandise. Interestingly, the range seems to be a mix of what one gets in England and Australia with the sellers stocking the Finch,Mitch Marsh,Lynn,Bairstow and Kane models. Its definitely not easy to penetrate the Indian market which is dominated by the local brands such as SS,SG,MRF etc. but GN seems to be doing the right thing by flooding the markets with their bats, as I feel that is the only way you can target a big market like India. It would be really interesting to see how well they do.

They did try to get some decent names like Karun Nair and Manish Pandey but that wouldnt have got them any real visibility.

With the number of sponsored players in the IPL, I think it is a good play for GN, plus they have a big factory in India.
Then balance that with the lack of cricket in the UK this summer, they likely have stock that needs shifting, so why not get it out there locally and see what happens.

Saw a lot of those GN bats have high middles and thin toes.. Wouldn't fly in Indian market which is all about low/mid middles..

That's roughly 160 isn't it. Looks great value. Could be a good way to source gn bats if people like Online stockist supply them

Like most of the GN bats, these are made in india. Their release was planned for start of IPL . That's why they are also known as IPL edition in the GN catalogue.
I have seen a few of these and for the first time (other than GN Australia range), i am excited about GN bats :)

For a non Indian, Kane Williamson is like royalty in India so Gray Nicolls probably jumping on the right bandwagon.

Ok good to know. Maybe I wasn't looking at the right pics on phone screen before. But the pics shared above look quite good. And if ones like above are priced at INR 16k, that's good value IMO.
