The Newbery Blitz Cricket Bat has been marketed to be a T20 cricket bat as used this year in the Natwest T20 Blast but the truth is that this bat would be equally handy in any format of the game. It comes in the 2lbs10oz weight range and is feather light for the colossal amount of power that it packs. The profile on this cricket bat is absolutely huge. It leaves little to the imagination as tow hat it can do in the hands of a destructive batsman. Yet its incredible balance allows for much acclaim among batsman who have a more delicate type of touch game.

 

Newbery is saying that the Newbery Blitz is their most powerful cricket bat, that says a lot coming from bat company that produces many fantastically powerful cricket bats. The willow used to make the Newbery Blitz is the finest English Willow that is hand selected by the master podsahvers at Newbery. Other brands such as GM or Gray Nicolls would very well call the Newbery Blitz a limited edition cricket bat or a players edition cricket bat. There is no doubt that the complete bat package offered by the Newbery Blitz is a rarity and should be high on the shopping list of batsman who like a supreme cricket bat.
