Each grain represents 1 year of growth of a particular willow tree. The number of grains has a direct correlation with the quality of the cricket bat.

The older the tree is, the softer the wood is. The bat thus is made of upper-class English willow and will give you the punch and performance of the blade. They tried to leave as much wood in the bat as there is minimum concaving and scalloping along the spine and toe of the bat.

Imported Singapore cane handle with special formulation cork inserts enhance the shock absorption and feel from the handle to the blade of the bat. According to my observation of the bat, the handle begins with a semi-oval shape that goes into round from the middle of the handle.

The benefit is that you will be able to play horizontal and straight shots comfortably. You will have perfect feel from the bat. A heavier bat, but the pickup feels 1 ounce lighter than the dead weight. Full-size length of the bat is estimated at 85.7 cm.

For better grip it comes with Chevtac grip who profile excellent grip. Technology used in Bat: Big Sweet Spot: SG English Willow Bats are produced with the maximum sized sweet spot available which is helpful in building confidence and emphasising stroke play.

Pen drive Handle Technology: This English Willow Bat handle has multiple pieces of imported Sarawak Cane to enhance & maximizing the strength. This is required for the extra bond between handle & blade thereby maximizing durability and power transfer. 

Big Edge Profile: This Technology minimizes the power loss caused from off center strikes. SG English Willow Bat edges measure up to 40 mm which is best for professional cricket.

Round Face Profile: The rounded face provides a refined direction of power throughout the hitting zone, but yields a slightly less imposing yet more familiar profile. 

Light-Weight: Some professional players demand for light weight English Willow bats.

SG Triple Crown Original Grade 1- SG bats РA Scalloped PROFILE SHAPE:In the quest to maximise spine height, gouging willow from either side of the spine allows it to peak without dramatically increasing weight. Scallops also maximise edge profile which reduces rotation of the blade in off-centre hits. A well scalloped bat made from high quality willow is the hallmark of a light cricket bat.

SG Triple Crown Original Grade 1- SG bats РA Enhanced BOW: A very aggressive style bow made for attacking cricket & striking fear into bowlers. The extra leverage towards the toe can be an excellent tool on lower bouncing wickets.

SG Triple Crown Original Grade 1- SG bats РHigh SPINE HEIGHT: A high spine maximises the hitting power of the centre of the cricket bat.

SG Triple Crown Original Grade 1- SG bats¬†– 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 plus ‘point and shoot’ aiming of a flat face bat. A slight curve also allows batsman to be confident when using the wrists to manipulate the face angle.

SG Triple Crown Original Grade 1- SG bats РBig EDGES: These edges are heading close to the magic 40mm mark. Big edges make for a forgiving and powerful cricket bat with a wider sweet spot. Please be aware that junior bats can still have big edges but they will be relative to 40mm due to their size.

SG Triple Crown Original Grade 1- SG bats¬†– Low SWEET SPOT POSITION: Performs at its best when players hit through the ‘V’ with a straight bat. Often favoured by those who play at the top of the order or find themselves on lower bouncing wickets. Crush a drive with one of these and the bowlers will know they’re in for trouble.

SG Triple Crown Original Grade 1- SG bats РA semi square to square TOE: GM bats have Toe Tek for toe protection. It is fitted with a toe guard.  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.

It has 6-11 straight grains and developed from grade A English willow for excellent performance. The edges are extra thick 40-45 mm to ease the player while hitting the ball. I think it is the first choice for serious cricket players, because of its feel and big, sweet spot. It has round shape short handle. It also comes with a toe protector for excellent durability.

The back profile of the bat shows the sharpness of the spine. The length of the spine is till the bottom of the bat, and you can see the amount of wood that is carved out. No warranty is provided on the product and services by the manufacturer as cricket bats are subjected to wear & tear and depends on the usage from individual to individual.

SG Player Edition English Willow Cricket Bat- SG bats- Full Profile Min Concaving: The bat has very limited wood taken out the back of the bat, therefore the wood is left where it really matters to ensure the utmost ping. It is someone that is looking at ultimate power at the forefront, then this shape may suit. The pickup will still be nice and balanced and feel superb in the hands. This is the shape that most pro’s like especially in the ODI/T20 format due to the value for strokes you receive with this profile.

SG Player Edition English Willow Cricket Bat- SG bats РA large Bow: A large bow acts as a counterbalance, raising the center of gravity of the cricket bat, thereby assisting pick-up. In other words, a bat with considerable bow and a lower middle can feel the same as a straight blade with a higher middle.

It helps with control of strokes, as the player’s hands are positioned more in front of the ball during contact. It acts like a scoop, to produce more lofted (higher) shots, which do however run the risk of being caught.

History of SG Cricket

What do the following cricketers have in common? 

Sunil Gavaskar, Mohammad Azharuddin, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Rilee Rossouw 

They know all about the whispering, the planning and the fielders‚Äô worries about them.¬† They all stood there with confidence with a SG bat in hand ‚Äď ready – for the next delivery.

Sanspareils Greenlands is an Indian cricket equipment manufacturer that you probably never heard of, but we all know the brand SG.

SG is an abbreviation for Sanspareils and Greenland companies with the vision of balance, power and precision.

The use of the bats is fairly widespread in international cricket.

Here follows a short history of the company to understand the depth of experience in manufacturing cricket equipment.

 The two brothers Kedarnath and Dwarakanath Anand established Sanspareils Company in Sialkot in 1931.

In 1940 they established a company named Greenlands to facilitate export of their products. Why hit singles when there are boundaries to cross?

 The cricket factory has been in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh since 1950.

SG has been exporting bats to the UK and Australia. According to my knowledge, they also manufacture bats for other international brands aswell.

SG loves to manufacture custom bats to the professionals needs.  With 70 years of experience and working alongside the top players they understand how to shape a bat to the player’s style and needs.

For this reason the company has been the market leader in the world with legends like Sunil Gavaskar, Mohammad Azharuddin and Rahul Dravid endorsing the brand.

The brand really took off when Sunil Gavaskar became their ambassador in the 1970s.
