Serious Cricket Try Before You Buy 2016
April 6, 2016
Serious Cricket recently hosted its biggest ever ‘Try before you buy’ cricket equipment show at the Dummer Cricket Centre, where this year’s top attraction was former England batsman Mark Ramprakash. His present role, having retired from playing professional cricket 4 years ago, is now as the batting coach to the England team and Mark was delighted to come along to offer some coaching tips to the cricketers while they tested the latest equipment supplied by most of the major manufacturers.
With the T20 shorter playing format of cricket increasing in popularity, many of the bat makers are designing their products with big hitting in mind. Having the chance to face the bowling machines with a chunky piece of willow in hand allowed players a better, more informed decision on the bat’s suitability.
