I’m interested in purchasing either a Stuart Surridge, Salix or Smasher cricket bat?  Has anyone purchased any one of these cricket bats and how would you rate these bats?

Salix are very good bats on occasions, Surridge not so good. Smasher also ok but nothing amazing. Salix is the way forward

For the rest of you these are UK handmade cusom made cricket bat companies

Is it okay to play cricket on concrete?

Posted by: | Comments (13)

Is it okay to play cricket on the street in front of my house? Or will that tear up the leather cricket ball and the bat? Could I replace the ball with a tennis ball, for practice on the conrete? Will this majorly effect my bowling technique?

The best way to play backyard (or street) cricket is with a tennis ball, but get some electrical tape and tape the ball up. otherwise the ball is too light, bounces too much, and doesn’t carry as far in the air as a normal cricket ball.

If you want to be able to swing the ball, tape one side heavily and only put a little on the other side. as other people have said, don’t use a leather cricket ball on the street as it will deteriorate quickly, but I wouldn’t even use it on yard grass, it doesn’t bounce enough and it’s too hard for the small space.

Taped-up tennis balls are the way to go. Best compromise you can get. As for the bat, most people have a very cheap, very thin cricket bat that they only use for backyard cricket. If you don’t, get one. They usually come with a dodgy little red tennis ball and stumps, all for about ten bucks.

Who cares if it wears on the toe? It’s disposable. using a match bat is overkill… and most players put “shoe goo” on the toe of their bats to protect against wear anyway.
