Which Cricket Bats Manufacturer Won the Ashes?
Steve Smith, Joe Root and New Balance Cricket Bat
Steve Smith and his New Balance cricket bat scored 687 runs during the Ashes Series at an Average of 137.40. That is a pretty impressive batting average. As a New Balance cricket bat user, Smith had his opposing captain in Joe Root to also help his score. Root scored 378 runs in the Ashes at an average of 47.25. This may have been more if Ben Stokes would have toured, which he would have done if not for the incident which made him lose his sponsorship deal with New Balance.
So New Balance cricket bats 1065 runs between Smith and Root at an average of 92.
Gray Nicolls Bats, David Warner, Shaun Marsh, Alistair Cook
Gray Nicolls had a fantastic series also. The 2nd and 3rd highest run-getters in the Ashes use Gray Nicolls bat. David Warner and his Gray Nicolls Kaboom cricket bat had 441 runs for the Ashes but he was topped by Shaun Marsh who had 445 runs for the Ashes. There is also the Alistair Cook factor. Cook had an average series aside from one massive double hundred. Cook still managed to amass 376 runs.
GM Cricket Bats, Dawid Malan, and James Vince
The best of the English batsmen was Dawid Malan. Malan is, of course, a user of GM cricket equipment. Malan managed to amass 383 runs during the Ashes series. James Vince looked good in all the innings that he played and then seemed to get out. Vince, also a user of GM bats amassed 242 runs.
Kookaburra Cricket Bats, Usman Khawaja
Usman Khawaja was almost like a lone warrior for Kookaburra cricket bats. Khawaja amassed 333 runs in the Ashes. This was of course bolstered by a great top score of 171.
Spartan Cricket Bat, Jonnie Bairstow
Bairstow did not begin this series using a Spartan cricket bat but in terms of movement in the brand name, this was the biggest move in the Ashes. Bairstow, who has used Gray Nicolls bats and more recently Adidas bats, came out in the 5th Test to bat with Spartan cricket gear and of course a Spartan cricket bat.
