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.

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.
