But what exactly is a Long Blade cricket bat, and how is it different to a Long Handle? Well, the name should give it away! Both bats are the same overall length (34 3/8”) which is 7/8” (2.2cm) longer than a Short Handle bat, but the extra length is in the blade, not the handle.

So, if you are in the pursuit of long handle cricket bats, take a look at some of the top-notch purchase options available in India: FERVOR SPEL™ English Willow Mongoose Cricket Bat
Long Handle (LH): Suitable for ages 15+, Height Range: 6ft 3" upwards (191cm+), Bat Length 34 3/8”. Please Note: While Long Handle cricket bats are advisable for taller players, and are particularly useful for digging out Yorkers, it is not uncommon to see adults over 6ft 3” tall using a short handle bat - mainly because the grip is generally deemed to be more comfortable.
Though there is a small matter of personal preference, your height will give you a pretty strong idea of which type of bat you should buy. A Short Handle (33.5in x 4.25in) bat is generally recommended for batters between 5ft8” and 6ft3” Long Handles (34.375in x 4.25in) are designed for those who are 6ft3” or taller.
A cricket bat is an investment, and is a piece of equipment that will hopefully last you a long time. It is for this reason that in my opinion players should consider spending that little bit extra to land themselves a quality and durable bat.
