Cricket fans may remember Brad Haddin bringing the Kookaburra Bubble back to life during the 2014 Ashes.

The Kookaburra Xenon cricket bat as used by Australian wicket keeper Brad Haddin is of Test Match quality and is made of superlative unbleached English Willow. The clefts used to make the Kookaburra Xenon are carefully selected to ensure optimum performance and durability of the Kookaburra Xenon bats.
One of the most impressive features on the Kookaburra Xenon cricket bat is the size of the sweet spot. The sweet spot is mid blade at about 225mm on the bat and extends virtually throughout the whole blade. This cricket bat is tailor made for the natural stroke maker. A player who comes hard at the bal and the touch players will benefit from the dynamic power rounded face. The rounded face on many of the new Kookaburra bats including the Xenon1250 is a stand out feature that is earning acclaim among some of the world’s best players.
The profile on the spine is what Kookaburra like to call the Super Profile. The super profile means that the spine is up to 64mm. The edge profile on the bat is the big edge rounded bat and is between 34-40mm. The weight range in the Kookaburra bat is between 3lbs7oz and 2lbs10oz. The pick up and weight distribution though through the bat is superb for extreme control and balance of the bat when anticipating the bowler and while playing the shot.

From the humble beginnings Albion cricket in 1941 off Little Albion St in Surrey Hills, New South Wales, albion has evolved to pioneer two generations of product development in sport, with expertise in manufacturing high quality team uniform, before becoming an industry innovator through the development of sports protective gear.
The brand’s tradition, reputation and expertise in manufacturing durable and high quality team uniform out of Australia dates back to World War II, when the US army acquired albion’s services to manufacture military kits.
Soon after, albion combined its workmanship with its competitive spirit and passion for sport to begin delivering premium quality, durable and fashionable uniform through all styles of caps for the Ivy League and other sporting associations. In the late 1950’s, the brand became synonymous with team sport after winning the contract to make the Baggy Green – a cap which captures the essence of team unity and solidarity.
As sport evolved, the need for athletes to reach a personal best became more apparent, and albion’s competitive desire ensured it was part of the winning formula. After pioneering the first ever cricket helmet in the late 1970’s which enabled batsmen to perform at the elite level, albion quickly became the answer to sports protection globally.
By understanding that each human’s anatomy is unique, albion’s full attention is on the athlete. The ability to translate feedback to the laboratory, and to design an exclusive product enables the brand to ‘raise the bar’ in sports performance and protection, providing the athlete with confidence, strength and comfort for competitive advantage.

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?

The bespoke cricket bat is becoming a buzz word in the cricket gear world. As a huge movement pulls away from the inferior bulk machine made cricket bats, brands like Affinity Cricket and Hammer Cricket are popping up with fantastically crafted cricket bats. These bats fill the void of superbly handcrafted cricket bats and give consumers far more options in terms of buying a high quality hand crafted cricket bat.
People have always wondered, if baseballs and cricket balls are so similar then why are cricket balls so expensive and baseballs are relatively cheap? Here is the Hammer pro white cricket ball.
Who makes their cricket bats?
Have you ever wondered why professionals tape the edges of their cricket bats? Or don’t you ever think to yourself that surely Virender Sehwag’s Honda cricket bat was not made by a car company?
Slazenger is another cricket bat company who no longer produce bats. The famous Duncan Fearnley which Ian Botham wielded made the 2013 Slazenger V12 Limited Edition bats. The rest of Slazenger bats are now produced by FC Shondi. The Hunts County cricket bat which was famously used by Darryl Cullinan is no longer seen on the international circuit. This however does not mean they are not still around, they are one of the main manufacturers for large companies around the cricketing world.
