THE BENEFITS OF KNOCKING IN YOUR BAT!

  • by Rod Grey

I’m sure you’ve heard the term ‘knocking-in,’ especially if you have been around cricket for a long time, but not many understand the benefits from knocking-in your cricket bat.

The lifespan of a cricket bat varies depending on how well the bat is knocked in. The ultimate goal here for the laborious process is to compress the willow into itself (predominantly the edges and toe) to withstand the impact of a cricket ball.

The knocking-in process is essential to the longevity and quality of your cricket bat. If you purchase new and completely skip the knocking-in process, we can guarantee premature cracking of the wood, indentations from the ball and other damages. If the cricket ball hits the weakest points of your bat repetitively, it will cause shards of wood to fly off and in extreme cases, a massive crack that’ll essentially cost you.
