How to choose the correct size for a cricket bat

All top coaches will agree that having the correct size equipment is crucial especially for junior players.

Bat Sizing:

Full Size /Short Handle – 1.75m & over

Small Adult/Academy – 1.68m – 1.75m

Harrow – 1.63m – 1.68m

6 – 1.57m – 1.63m

5 – 1.50m – 1.57m

4 – 1.44m – 1.5m

3 – 1.37m – 1.44m

2 – 1.29m – 1.37m

1 – Up to 1.29m

 

Too often junior players use bats that are too big for them. Bats that are too long prevent the bat being picked up correctly as the top of the handle gets in the way.
