David Warner and Steve Smith Use Pink Cricket Bat.

There has been somewhat of a buzz around Pink cricket bat from different players. Chris Gayle used a gold colored cricket bat for the Big Bash 2015-2016 and Andre Russell has gathered a fair bit of publicity with his black colored Spartan cricket bat.

As has become tradition though, the New Year’s Test Match at the Sydney Cricket Ground is known as the Pink Test Match. This is not to be confused with the fact that when they play a Day/Night Test match they use a Pink cricket ball. The Pink Test Match is there to help raise money for the McGrath Foundation. The McGrath Foundation was started by former Australian fast bowler to raise money for breast cancer awareness. This is something close to Mcgrath’s heart after his first wife, Jane McGrath, died of breast cancer.

In this year’s Pink Test Match, the headlines were stolen before lunch by David Warner who became only the fifth batsman ever to score a century before lunch in a Test Match.

To cricket bat lovers they would have noticed that David Warner was using a brand new Gray Nicolls Kaboom cricket bat and in honor of the Pink Test Match, Gray Nicolls had made special pink cricket bat stickers for the bat for Warner.

Later on the Australian skipper, Steve Smith came out to bat with a brand new New Balance pink cricket bat that had also had the stickers in full pink in honor of the Pink Test Match.

When you think about it, it kind of makes sense that the Pink Test Match should have been a Day/Night Test match so that they could have used the pink cricket ball.

The way David Warner batted, it seems possible that we will be seeing him come out to bat with that Pink stickered cricket bat once again.

Spartan Cricket

Spartan Cricket

There are not many cricket brands that have entered the cricket brand market with as much as a bang as Kunal Sharma and his Spartan Brand of Cricket bats.

As much as Spartan has put out a quality line of cricket bats, they have also signed some of the most popular faces on the cricketing planet to pump up their brand. Players like Chris Gayle and Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Michael Clarke.

Clarke was always an exponent of Slazenger, always flaunting the latest bat that Slazenger had to flaunt. He then went for a test match or two where his bat was sponsorless and he then emerged on the other end wielding a Spartan Cricket Bat. This is not dissimilar to a another Australian captain, Steve Waugh. Steve Waugh was a Gunn & Moore loyal, wielding most bats they had to offer from the early days of the Diamond. Waugh then went for a few matches with a blank cricket bat and then emerged using an MRF cricket bat.

Spartan to their credit have produced a line of very fine cricket bats. Their bats have a square toe which is to the liking of some cricketers. There is no doubt that Sharma and his Spartan brand will continue to trailblaze when it comes to cricket equipment. The question though is not so much what are they going to come out with next but rather which international player are they going to nab next?
