Do's and Don'ts of Cricket Bats!

Article Content:
Do's and Don'ts of Cricket Bats

DO NOT leave your cricket bat in the hot boot of a car. This is one of the worst things you can do especially in hot summer months when cricket is played.

DO NOT take your dismissal out on the cricket bat once you get in the change rooms.

DO NOT use your cricket bat against cheap cricket balls especially the old compo's!

DO NOT expose your cricket bat to excessive moisture or rain. Always dry your bat immediately if it does get wet. (To minimise absorption through the toe of the bat feel free to give this area a light coat of marine varnish. Some of the cricket bats sold by Middlepeg have had the toe region treated with DriGuard which repels moisture)

DO NOT OVER OIL your cricket bat. Less is best when it comes to oiling. It is just as dangerous to over oil a bat as it is to under oil.

DO NOT try to discover the aerodynamic capabilities of your cricket bat after a dismissal. Cricket bats were not designed to fly and throwing your bat is one of the silliest things you can do to it. We have never known a cricket bat to be responsible for a dismissal anyway!

DO take care of your cricket bat.

DO prepare and Run your cricket bat in correctly.

DO oil your cricket bat regularly (a very, very light coating once every few months).

DO store the cricket bat in a cool dry location away from excessive heat or moisture.

And Ö.. DO go out and make runs with it!
