Salix bats are painstakingly crafted by hand, worked on with utmost care by master batmakers as they press and shape the finest English Willow into some of the world’s most iconic cricketing creations.
The Pod Players, with its combination of a modern, flatter face profile, huge edges, and concave-sanded back, offers an excellent balance between power and manoeuvrability. Its deep, long bow sustains a mid driving area for classic front and back foot play.
Only available in Salix’s highest grades, the bat’s combination of top quality willow and a smooth, extended middle make it a joy to play with. A truly brilliant bat.
While we understand how difficult it can be to select a bat online, we work closely with our partner brands to provide the best bat for you at each grade and price point. That way you can be assured that you will receive the best possible bat available. However, we are unfortunately unable to weigh individual bats, or to guarantee a specific number of grains per bat.

It was not long ago that the only way to distinguish your cricket bat from the next was to apply your name or initials on the shoulder of the bat with the black permanent marker. Thankfully times have changed, and the ability to truly 'Personalise' a product to your own individual requirements is now available to all.
