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.
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.
