  • Spring Handle Bat

This is the next generation cricket bat. It is different from the old cricket bats. The difference lies in the handle of the bat the handle of this bat is flexible. This helps the bat to absorb the shock and prevent any kind of damage. This is very useful when the shot is to be played with the full flow as the flexibility plays a major role when the bat hits the ball it creates extra power without affecting the bat.

This is helpful for the batsmen while playing a Yorker ball as it impacts the toe of the bat and the shock wave created by the connection of bat and ball have an adverse effect on the hands of a batsman, but this bat minimizes that effect.
