REVIEW

First impressions evoke a thick-necked hooligan with a heart who’s just fallen in with the wrong crowd. “It’s a very bog-standard shape,” adds Key, “and the middle is where it should be. It’s not too high, not too low. It’s got wide edges but it’s light, picks up well. It’s a big bat but you feel you can get bat-speed along with enough weight behind it.” A first top 10 appearance for the upstart brand from Bradford, and well deserved. Fine English willow gets us all a flutter and we don’t care who knows it.
