Malik Sarfi Legend MB Malik bats -Full PROFILE SHAPE: The full player’s style cricket bat is the most common of bats in cricket bat production. This kind of profile is both the most powerful and most forgiving. Such a design is what you will usually see at the international level. A full profile usually means one of two things. Either the bat is constructed from high quality lightweight willow or has an above average weigh with minimum concaving and scalloping at the back of the bat.

Malik Sarfi Legend MB Malik bats- A Standard BOW: The regular bow found in the majority of modern cricket bats which allows you to get your hands slightly ahead of the ball for ease of stroke play. It also helps the cricket bat feel more aggressive in your hands.

Malik Sarfi Legend MB Malik bats- A Medium SPINE HEIGHT: Often combined with big edges to create a forgiving bat with an extra wide hitting zone which still rewards striking the blade out of the very middle.

Malik Sarfi Legend MB Malik bats-A Semi-Flat FACE: One of the latest trends in cricket bat faces was born from the need to add some durability to the edges of flat faced bats. When prepared correctly semi-flat faces bring the benefits of slightly bigger edges, a wider sweet spot. A slight curve also allows batsman to be confident when using the wrists to manipulate the face angle.

Malik Sarfi Legend MB Malik bats-A Mid SWEET SPOT POSITION: Not too high or too low, the mid sweet spot position is the most popular setup among all cricket bats. This setup gives performance both straight and square of the wicket, while allowing players to be confident with an array of shots. This prime sweet spot position is also famous for what many refer to as a ‘balanced’ pickup.

Malik Sarfi Legend MB Malik bats-Semi- Oval HANDLE TYPE: A happy medium that brings the benefits of both oval & round handles. This shape aids alignment slightly strengthens the Top hand for more controlled stroke play and still allows for creative use of the bottom hand.

Malik Sarfi Legend MB Malik bats-A semi-square TOE:  This bat is not fitted with a toe guard. I would suggest to add a toe guard to this bat as it would protect the bat against excessive moisture. The main reason for a Semi square toe is it help minimize damage from tapping at the crease and running between the wickets with your bat, as the toe is slightly offset.

Ideally suited to the stroke maker who likes to send balls out of the park, very well balanced and light pick up for the mid to low profile. The Picks up is at least an ounce lighter than the dead weight.

The ping (What is ping in a cricket bat? Ping describes the rebound after impact on the face of a cricket bat. A bat with good ping will offer greater control and power when hitting a cricket ball. I determine the qualities of a bat’s ping with a cricket bat mallet.) Will help you to hit those huge sixes you always wished for.

The Bat is having a longer than normal, sweet spot with extraordinary balance. This bat is top lineMB Malik Willow Cricket bat. Its handle is made of top-quality canes which give super easy and shock free Cricketing performance.

 Malik Platinum Gold Edition MB Malik bats-A Duckbill PROFILE SHAPE: This profile adds thickness to the toe and assists with the pickup of the bat. This ensures that the bat is well balanced. Many international and professional players prefer this batting profile due to the correct balance of wood left in the hitting zone of the bat. Perfect for dominant front foot players and when you play on slow low pitches. You will be able to hit big shots clearing the boundary with this bat.

 Malik Platinum Gold Edition MB Malik bats-A Slight BOW: This is a combination of the traditional and large bow which is the most common when making a cricket bat. Indian sub-continental shapes are typically seen with a more pronounced bow enabling the sweet spot to be lower on the blade as well. Ideal to bat with this bat on slow low pitches. This is a regular bow found in the majority of modern cricket bats which gets your hands slightly ahead of the ball for ease of stroke play. It also helps the cricket bat feel more aggressive.

The grade of the willow is as good as the MB Gold edition an might be even better in my opinion, you will still feel the bat’s elegant pickup and rebound.

The willow is naturally air-dried and shaped as per the specifications of the world’s top players. The bat is supported with big massive concave edges that enable high optimum performance.

Edge thickness is between 38-40 mm. The specially designed scale Bat Handle Grip and the combination of the Sarawak Cane Handle will give you an excellent feel. The Weight of the bat can vary between 1200-1255 grams, but the pickup weight I would say is about 1100 grams. The embossed chrome sticker gives the bat a great finish. Made and prepared in India.

 The handle feels a bit thin with the triangular grips, I would change it with the ripple grips that are thicker and that will make the pick-up of the bat lighter.

Little to no wood was taken out. Full PROFILE SHAPE:

Standard BOW: The regular bow found in the majority of modern cricket bats which gets your hands slightly ahead of the ball for ease of stroke play. It also helps the cricket bat feel more aggressive in your hands.

Extended 64mm SPINE HEIGHT: Cricket Bat Spine is found on the back face of the cricket bat. The spine is¬†the line that runs down the center of the cricket bat’s back starting from the handle and running down to the toe. Higher spine or a thicker swell depth represents more willow mass behind the sweet spot.

A flat FACE: Round is the traditional shape that until 15 years ago was all there was. You get more deflection for off-centred shots, which a touch player can exploit for late shots backward of the square. Round faces put less stress on the shoulders and handle because that energy is deflected rather than twisting the blade. All that puts stress around the splice joint, so the flatter the face the more twist is generated the harder you hit and closer to the edge. It is the same reason a flatter face is more forgiving and more energy remains in the shot for off-centre shots making the middle feel wider. The big edge was a by-product of the flatter face. The new MCC law allows for a maximum of 5 mm camber. This is probably a good compromise

A Mid SWEET SPOT POSITION:

Semi-Oval HANDLE TYPE: A happy medium that brings the benefits of both oval & round handles. This shape aids alignment and slightly weakens the bottom hand for more controlled stroke play and still allows for creative use of the bottom hand.

Slightly square TOE: This bat needs some form of toe preparation via shoe goo, a toe guard, or your favourite secret recipe.

It has a mid-to-low sweet spot that assists with clean hitting. A scale grip is designed for this bat. Available in Short handle and long handle.

Higher spine or a thicker swell depth represents more willow mass behind the sweet spot.

Malik Lala Edition MB Malik bats-A flat FACE: Round is the traditional shape that until 15 years ago was all there was. You get more deflection for off-centered shots, which a touch player can exploit for late shots backward of the square. Round faces put less stress on the shoulders and handle because that energy is deflected rather than twisting the blade. All that puts stress around the splice joint, so the flatter the face the more twist is generated the harder you hit and closer to the edge. It is the same reason a flatter face is more forgiving and more energy remains in the shot for off-centre shots making the middle feel wider. The big edge was a by-product of the flatter face. The new MCC law allows for a maximum of 5 mm camber. This is probably a good compromise.

Malik SHER Amin Malik bats -Slightly Scalloped PROFILE SHAPE: A small amount of scalloping is seen in a very large amount of cricket bats.

A slight curve also allows batsman to be confident when using the wrists to manipulate the face angle.
