Please talk to us regarding this and you can see a video of this process under Unique Offers page.

Damage caused due to usage associated with facing bowling machine balls is also not included as it is not a manufacturing fault. Repair and replacement does not include additions or enhancements done on the bat like bat being sanded down to reduce weight. If it is decided to replace the bat, the costs associated with knocking in and/or adding the anti-scruff face on the new bat may be charged to the customer.

FAQs

HOW DO I CHOOSE A BAT?


When looking at a new bat, balance or pick up of the bat is most important point to note. It is the balance and pick up of the bat, which really counts in play rather than its weight on weighing scale.

WHAT IS OILING THE BAT?

After a period of use a bat may start to show signs of dryness making some of the surface cracks protrude. When this happens just give the bat light sanding removing extra dirt from the surface. Then, below the front logo / sticker, apply very light coating of raw-linseed oil or special cricket bat oil onto hitting areas of the blade. Allow the bat to lie horizontally. Another two coatings of the oil on the bat should be sufficient. The main purpose of oiling is to maintain moisture levels within the blade. Never oil the splice or the shoulder of the bat.

WHAT IS KNOCKING-IN?

Knocking In is the process by which the fibers of the willow in the face and edges are compressed and knitted together to form a strong outer resistance and a shield to the impact of cricket ball. The Knocking –In process should be done carefully and thoroughly as the life and the performance of your cricket bat is determined by it to a large extent. It’s a step process that involves striking on the face of the bat and edges using ball mallet or quality old ball. Increase the force gradually until the blow is as hard as a ball hits in a game. This step is followed by a trial run of using the bat in nets or short catches with an old leather ball. This step should perform for at least two hours. Then test the bat against newer quality balls. If there are seam marks or dents please go back to the knocking step. However if there are no seam marks on the blade then it is ready for use in matches. Never knock on the back of the bat. For best results, please knock the bat at least 10 days before its use in a match.

HOW TO MAINTAIN A CRICKET BAT OR HOCKEY STICK?

SURFACE CRACKS

These are small cracks, which appear on all bats after a period of use. Their appearance on a new bat is direct result of the bat being under prepared i.e. not properly knocked-in or may be due to use of low quality, hard cricket balls. All bats will show surface cracks, THIS IS NORMAL. The main aim of knocking is to delay these cracks for as long as possible.

EDGE CRACKS

These cracks are not results of faulty workmanship or defective willow. They appear due to use of under prepared bat or mistimed strokes during the play. Sometimes such strokes are unavoidable and therefore it is wise to take precautions.  Both the above problems can be minimized by application of protective sheets to face and edges of the bat.

TOE CRACKS

Ideal area to hit the ball, of the sweet spot of the bat is approximately between 10cm to 25cm from the toe of the abt. Toe is not as thick as the sweet spot of the bat and is hence more prone to damage. Striking of a ball at the base of the bat causes cracking of the toe. This can be due to hitting a Yorker. Such damaged caused must be immediately treated with application of some strong fast drying glue.

SURFACE CHIPS

In the field of play while at practice or playing competitively, hockey sticks can hit on each other or against a hard surface and sometimes the surface colour may chip, however, and it is important to know that this is merely cosmetic and does not impact or affect how the stick plays or compromise the performance in any way.
