This wiki has been updated 16 times since it was first published in October of 2018. The sport of cricket has been around since the 16th century, and the first bats were no more than rough, misshapen slats of wood with rather slippery handles. Luckily, they've come a long way over the years. Our selection includes some of the finest models — many of which are used by professional players — boasting features that will make your opponents wonder if you train 24/7. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

December 04, 2018:

We consulted the opinions of demanding players to find the best bats for our list. We hope that regardless of budget or experience level, every cricket enthusiast can find a suitable bat here. We added those made from Kashmir and English willow, ensuring that there are both lightweight and heavy options. We also looked at spine length, concaving, and other features that contribute to an overall well-made piece of equipment.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
