For more than 80 years SG has been churning out some of the best cricket bats in the cricket equipment market.

Where to buy SG Cricket Bats in the USA?

Many people love the quality and attention to detail that SG Cricket bats have but struggle to find a reputable supplier in the USA.

Cricket Store Online has earned a reputation as America’s premier cricket store with the best and latest cricket gear and cricket equipment. Cricket Store Online is now proud to offer SG to USA cricketers.

Why buy and SG Cricket Bat?

Having dealt with many English Willow cricket bats, like GM cricket bats and Gray Nicolls cricket bats, it seems to be that SG is a cricket bat that really has strength when it comes to a cricket bat for sub-continent conditions. Sub-continent conditions are lower bouncing pitches and a lot of spin and slower building. Many of the pitches in the USA replicate these conditions and the lower sweet spot on many of these SG cricket bats definitely is a huge benefit. Of course SG are great for even the fastest paced bowling too.

Who uses and used SG Cricket Bats?

SG has been used by the greats of Indian cricket. This includes the little master himself Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and as mentioned Sunil Gavaskar. Modern players such as Suresh Raina and West Indian Marlon Samuels also have used or do use SG cricket bats.

Gray Nicolls Kaboom Cricket Bat

Gray Nicolls Kaboom Cricket Bat

Is there a better all-round batsman in the world than David Warner? Whether it is Tests, ODI or T20, David Warner is worth his weight in gold and then some. David Warner recently led the Surisers Hydrebad to be the champions of the IPL for 2016 and it was David Warner and his Gray Nicolls Kaboom Cricket Bat that was at the front and centre of their batting.

David warner kaboom cricket bat

The name of the Gray Nicolls Kaboom says it all. It is a bat made for the power hitter. There are no tentative measures with the Gray Nicolls Kaboom, it means business from the very first ball.

The profile of the Gray Nicolls Kaboom is terrifyingly huge. The huge profile goes along with the massive edges that all in all makes this into a ball butchering weapon.

You would be surprised to know that despite all of the meat in this bat with a mid blade sweet spot, Gray Nicolls has still been able to maintain a 2lbs8oz to 2lbs12oz weight limit on the Kaboom cricket bat. This is almost as impressive as the size of the profile. 

The profile of the Gray Nicolls Kaboom cricket bat is in fact made to the specifications of Dave Warner himself. Those specifications are quite simple but extremely effective. Maximize the profile. And that is exactly what Gray Nicolls has done. In order to maximize the profile, Gray Nicolls has give the Kaboom a slight concave.

Most people who purchase the Gray Nicolls Kaboom like to use 2 or more grips with it. This is quite common with any cricket bat and how much more so on a bat with such a huge profile.

The handle is made from choice cane and is a 12 piece handle. There is very little vibration if any through to the hands.

If you are a power hitter with the strength to handle a bat with such a huge profile than there is no better option on the market other than the Gray Nicolls Kaboom. It is more than just a cricket bat, it is a cricket weapon.

GM Original L.E Wicketkeeper Gloves

GM Original L.E Wicketkeeper Gloves

The GM Original L.E Wicketkeeper gloves are Test cricket level wicketkeeping gloves. Everything about these wicketkeeping gloves is to the absolute best that the cricket industry has to offer.

What is a wicketkeeper looking for in his gloves?

1. Protection

This is obviously the first on the list. The wicketkeeper will be wearing these gloves to protect his hands and fingers from damage from the ball. This is not only single impact damage but damage that can come about from repetitive impacts. The wrist of the keeper is protected by the caned square cuff of the GM Original LE Wicketkeeper gloves. The cotton palm filling provides extra cushioning to protect from repetitive damage. The embossed finger tabs cover over the unique impact protection that goes into every finger.

2. Comfort

A wicketkeeper is looking for comfort in his wicketkeeping gloves and the GM Original LE Wicketkeeping gloves delivers on that front too. The Sheepskin Luxury leather and high comfort inner of the glove mean that this glove is as comfortable as it gets when it comes to wearing cricket keeping gloves. There is also a lot of ventilation and breathability in these gloves.

3. Grip

A keeper wants to be able to grip the ball and grab the ball easily. These gloves first of all meet all ICC standards for the webbing. The neoprene high grip is perhaps the best gripping available in wicketkeeping gloves and that is what is in the palm of the GM Original LE Wicketkeeping Gloves.

These wicketkeeping gloves are best served with wicketkeeping inners.

Masuri Elite Titanium Cricket Helmet

Masuri Elite Titanium Cricket Helmet

A recent furor arose in the UK as Alistair Cook the captain of England’s cricket team refused to comply with the English Cricket Board and wear a helmet that complies with the latest BSI standards for cricket helmets. Cook wears a Gray Nicolls cricket helmet. It seems absurd that the captain of the team should have to be begged to comply with standards that are designed to save the lives of players. Cook ought to consider that he is setting a role model standard for youngsters and should comply.

1.Masuri-ELITE-BLACK-LR-RGB

Cook should be looking to wear a cricket helmet like the Masuri Elite Titanium Cricket Helmet. There is no better piece of cricket head protective equipment than this helmet. It has a fairly pricey tag on it but consider that it is what you are using to protect the engine of your life and perhaps that puts some perspective.

The Masuri Elite Titanium Cricket Helmet is of course at its optimum when used in conjunction with the Masuri stem guard. The stem guard is a unique piece that protects the neck of the batsman.

The revolutionary eye line Grille means that the batsman has a good view of the ball when playing his shots. The strategically placed air flow vents means that there is very good ventilation for the batsman to enjoy. The amount of protection as compared to the weight of the helmet is also very impressive. 

The ball cannot fit through the grille of this helmet and the grille of this helmet is made out of sturdy titanium. Consider that the new BSI standards tested specifically for the ability of a ball to fit through the grille at high velocity and the Masuri Elite Titanium Cricket Helmet came up absolutely trumps. 

If you value what is important in your life and you put that in consideration, then you would be well advised to highly consider buying the Masuri Elite Titanium Cricket Helmet.

Kookaburra Kahuna 2000 cricket bat

Kookaburra Kahuna 2000 cricket bat

1. Super Spine

The Super Spine essentially means that the Kooaburra Kahuna has a sweet spot that runs the whole length of the cricket bat. The spine provides substance to the front of the willow that strikes the ball and being that this is a Super Spine there is power throughout the bat.

2. Flat Power Plus Face

Basic physics tells you that the bat will have the most power imparted on the ball if it meets the ball at a perpendicular angle. Well that is exactly what the Flat Power Plus Face on the Kookaburra Kahuna 2000 does. It means that the best possible connection is achieved from bat on ball.

3. Willow Grade

You do not get better willow than the willow that is being used for the Kookaburra Kahuna 2000. It is Grade 1 Unbleached English Willow. There is no blemishes on this willow and it is the absolute best willow available to cricket bat makers around the world.

BAS Bounces Back with Sachin

It is no secret that Sachin Tendulkar and Shane Warne will be playing some high profile cricket matches in the USA. What you may not know though is that Sachin Tendulkar seems to be using BAS cricket bats once again. In general it is no great fanfare to have a retired cricketer use your bat but when you talking about cricket’s demigod Sachin Tendulakr it is a very big deal. 

BAS have always crafted superb bats. Hashim Amla briefly used Kookaburra but the bulk of his career has been spent with BAS. Angelo Matthews and Darren Sammy use BAS and there was a time during his career that Sachin himself used a BAS.

BAS Pro players will most probably be using the BOW 20/20 BAS cricket bat. When you think of Sachin and Hashim Amla have very delicate wrists that they use to maneuver the ball into gaps in the field. This is definitely accentuated by the BAS Bow 20/20 cricket bat. The bat has a superb weight distribution and balance. This makes it easier for batsmen to flip their wrists and get the ball to go in the desired direction.

Grade A English Willow is what you can expect from the BAS BOW 20/20 cricket bat. It has lovely straight grains and many of them. 

The handle is made from high quality cane and is 9 piece. Of many of the bats used, players report the least vibration back to the hands from the BAS BOW 20/20 cricket bats. While this make of BAS cricket bat has a mid sweet spot, BAS in the past have been known to make a bat with a slightly lower sweet spot. This is obviously to cater to many of the sub-continent cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar himself that have a low sweet spot.

What BAS have done well is that they have kept their range of cricket bats on a very high scale. Very strict quality control on their cricket bats, specifically with their professional level cricket bats, ensure that the bats are always of the highest quality.

New Balance CK10 Cricket Shoes

New Balance has certainly exploded onto the cricket equipment market with a range of truly high quality cricket bats. Long before that they were making cricket boots and their cricket boots are still of the highest quality. After all, New Balance is and athletics company that made their name making premium athletic shoes and their cricket shoes are definitely no different.

The New Balance CK10 cricket shoe is possibly the best cricket shoe on the market. Much thought has gone into the design of these cricket boots to give cricketers, whether batsmen or bowlers or in the field absolute control, balance and stability.
new balance cricket shoe
In terms of comfort, the CK10 is the first “minimal” cricket shoe. This is truly a shoe and not a cricket boot. The shoe offers the same amount of ankle support as a boot would but it comes with the bonus of not being as weighty or as bulky as cricket boots can sometimes be. The comfort is extended to the mid-sole part of the New Balance CK10 cricket shoes where it has been fitted with New Balance’s renowned REVlite system. The REVlite offers a lightweight feel for the fielders that will be sending long hours on their feet in the field.
Cricketers know how essential balance and control are when it comes to their cricket shoes. The New Balance CK10 cricket shoes have a 4mm drop, New Balance have done this to help the cricketers achieve better proprioception which increases balance and control.

The toe has been reinforced to ensure that it does not wear thin in the area that is put under a lot of stress by the bowlers as they land to deliver the ball and the follow through.

These boots are endorsed by the many players who use New Balance cricket equipment. One of the players to be seen enjoying the use of the New Balance CK10’s is Australia’s Aaron Finch.
