These standard bat sizes should be used as a rough guide for when choosing a cricket bat.

Sizes overlap as the ideal bat size for each player is heavily influenced by personal preference. *The Academy size is not a standard bat size among cricket brands and is included for convenience; it is perfectly normal to go straight from Harrow to Short Handle when sizing up and vice versa when sizing down.
