#8 — Kookaburra Fever Pro 2000

Kookaburra Fever Pro 2000 Cricket Bat

This unconventional bat might surprise you, but it packs a powerful punch that isn’t to be overlooked. With a slightly shorter blade and longer handle, and at an incredible value under $400, the only thing lighter than the Fever Pro 2000’s pick-up is its price tag.

  • Handle: Oval

#7 — SG Players Edition

SG Players Edition Cricket Bat

At long last, we welcome the highly sought after SG brand to our range this season, and it has been well worth the wait. The Players Edition offers exceptional punch in a full players shape — it’s so good, in fact, that we’ve already had to order more of them. And what’s even better? You can take home this top-end bat for under $600. 

  • Price: $575 AUD
  • Grade: Grade 1 English Willow

#6 — New Balance DC 1080 Players Edition

New Balance DC 1080 Players Edition Cricket Bat

We can’t promise that you’ll hit sixes just like Steve Smith, but you can definitely have a bat just like his. The New Balance DC 1080 Players Edition is modeled after the exact bats that Smithy used to dominate in the recent Ashes series — full, balanced and powerful — and as you’d expect from an elite bat like this one, exceptional quality carries a price to match.

  • Price: $1,100 AUD

  • Weight: 2.8 - 2.10 lbs.
  • Handle: Semi-oval
  • Sweet Spot: Mid-to-low

#5 — Gray-Nicolls Giant

Gray-Nicolls Giant Cricket Bat

If willow was sold by the pound, this bat would an unbeatable deal — and in many ways it still is! The aptly named Giant is an absolute unit. Huge, fat, meaty — any word you can think of to describe a beefy powerhouse weapon of a cricket bat — this thing is it. Just be sure you’re a regular at the gym — you’ll need all the muscle you can muster to wield this massive monster.

  • Price: $275 AUD
  • Grade: Grade 3 English Willow
  • Weight: 3+ lbs.
  • Handle: Round
  • Sweet Spot: Mid-to-low

#4 — Kingsport Deadly

Kingsport Deadly Cricket Bat

A cricket bat that lives up to its name, the Deadly is built to kill the opposition. We brought the Deadly into 2020 in a slightly lower grade of willow to make its power profile more affordable, and it’s proven to be a huge success. The punch out of these bats has surprisingly improved from last season’s models, scoring it high points in quality and value — and with Aboriginal-inspired graphics, newly redesigned in collaboration with superstar Ash Gardner, it comfortably earns its spot on our list.

  • Price: $450 AUD
  • Grade: Grade 2 English Willow
  • Weight: 2.8 - 2.10 lbs.
  • Handle: Round
  • Sweet Spot: Mid-to-high

#3 — Kookaburra Ghost Pro 1500

Kookaburra Ghost Pro 1500 Cricket Bat

The Ghost is one of Kookaburra’s most popular models, and for good reason. A bat of this quality for under $300 is unheard of. This powerful full shape is beautifully crafted and looks even better with its iconic all-white stickers. You’ll be hard-pressed to find the same power and punch for the price in any other bat, especially with this much style.

  • Price: $275 AUD
  • Grade: Grade 3 English Willow
  • Weight: 2.8 - 2.10 lbs.
  • Handle: Oval
  • Sweet Spot: Mid
