Kookaburra cricket bats

Kookaburra cricket bats, as the name might suggest, originated out of Australia (for those who don’t know a kookaburra is a bird native to the land down under).  The bats are distinctive with the kookaburra bird logo proudly displayed on each bat making them look cool, classy and ready for action.

There are a range of bats available and the variety of choice is designed for all age ranges, abilities and budgets.  The range is described in further detail below.  If you have never picked up a kookaburra bat before it is a good idea to visit a local supplier to get a feel for them.  Even better would be to use on for real.  If you have a friend who has one or if there is a local cricket club you could visit try asking for a trial with one or more to give you an impression of their quality.
Today and in the past, Kookaburra bats are used by numerous famous international cricketers.  Manufacturers look to cricket stars to endorse their products (not just bats but also gloves, pads and helmets for example) and Kookaburra are no exception with cricket players of the highest international quality endorsing and using the bats in the field of action.  Ricky Ponting and Michael Hussey of Australia, Owais Shah of England and AB De Villiers of South Africa all use and have endorsed Kookaburra cricket bats to name just a few players.  In Decmeber 2011 it was announced that Ian Bell of England would also be using the new Kookaburra Recoil bat.
HISTORY
The history of Kookaburra sports gear and equipment dates back over 120 years to 1890 when Alfred Grace Thompson established his new business.  Once a maker of horse saddles and harnesses he saw that demand diminished as the use of horses became increasingly replaced by the motorization.  With his skills he turned to the manufacture of sporting products, starting with cricket balls (the kookaburra cricket ball is still used for first class games in Australia today) and eventually to cricket bats in the 1980’s.  Kookaburra cricket equipment includes the full range of gear including bats, gloves, pads, protectors and footwear.
RANGE
Over the years there have been a variety of bat ranges introduced by Kookaburra. These include Kahuna, Beast, Blade, Rogue, CCX, Genesis, Sword and Ice.  Each bat comes with specific design features tailored for the users preferred requirements and enhancement of attributes such as power, balance, speed and control.
The Kahuna Kookaburra bat range is designed for power.  It has a relatively big middle profile, thicker edges and a power drive handle.  With the increased dimensions the bat offers a bigger ‘sweet spot’ and in the right hands is an effective hitting zone for much more powerful shots and strokes.  The Kahuna 1000 is used by Ricky Ponting (Australia), A.B. De Villiers (South Africa), Martin Guptill (New Zealand) and Luke Wright (England).  Further details about the Kahuna bat range are presented below:

History of Football Boots

1526: The earliest football boot is recorded as belonging to King  Henry VIII

1800′s: Players wore hard, leather work boots, which were long laced  and steel toe capped as the first football shoes

Late 1800′s: Football boots shifted to a slipper style shoe, which  were made of thick, hard leather going up the ankle for increased protection and  incorporated leather studs – they weighed 500g

1925: The first replaceable studs were  featured, which could be changed according to weather conditions

1940′s: Football boot production shifted to producing a lighter  football boot with the focus on kicking and controlling the ball rather than  simply a piece of protective footwear

1950: Football boots are made with interchangeable screw in studs  made of plastic or rubber for the first time

1950′s: Football boots were still over the ankle but now made of  synthetic materials and leather, producing an even lighter shoe

1960′s: A momentous change in design saw the first below the ankle  football boots introduced

1970′s: This decade is remembered for the way in which football boot  sponsorship took off – players were paid to wear only one brand

1970′s: Technological developments allowed lighter boots to be  produced and the first all – white football boot was made

1990′s: Conventional studs were replaced by some manufacturers with  a bladed design, covering the sole, which gave a more stable base for the  player

Knowing the different kinds of shoes available will help you on how to choose  football shoes. The different types are:

Changeable studded boots – These have detachable studs that can be replaced  according to your needs and preference and depending on the type of surface you  will be playing on. This kind is ideal for unstable weather conditions.

Astro-turf shoes – These types consist of rubber soles and closely packed  studs. This kind is more apt for artificial surfaces.

Badminton Smash

Badminton Smash is the most potent of all badminton shots. There  is almost no defense against a well executed smash. It can be played  both on the forehand and backhand sides. Power of Badminton Smash is alos depands on type of Badminton Rackets you are playing with.

The smash is a shot hit with power and speed downward to your opponent’s court. The angle and the steepness of the  shuttle’s trajectory will make it hard for your opponent to retrieve.
Contact the shuttle further in front of your body than the clear or the  drop shot. The optimum hitting zone is located somewhere above the  central area of your racket.
Sign up to our free Badminton Newsletter to get firsthand tips, tricks and regular badminton updates! You will learn a lot more about the game and surely play better.

You can also jump and smash the shuttle at the  same time to generate more power and create a steeper angle for the  shot. This will give your opponent even lesser time to react. As this  is a more advance shot, master the normal badminton smash first before  taking on any jumping smash.
The feeling of being able to smash powerfully and  kill off a point is really great. But try not to get carried away. As  the badminton smash requires a lot of energy, use it only when the  opportunity arises. For example, a weak clear from your opponent to  your midcourt area. Do not tire yourself out unnecessarily.

Forehand Smash

The forehand overhead smash is similar to the action of throwing a ball. If you can throw a ball well, you shouldn’t have problem playing this  stroke. You can always practice throwing with a shuttle first before  stepping on to the court.
Here are some pointers for playing a forehand overhead smash.
- Adopt the forehand grip.
- Turn your body and stand sideways to the net with your non-racket shoulder facing the net.
- Shift your weight on to your rear foot.
- Bend your elbow and lock your wrist preparing to swing forward.
- Raise your non-racket hand and point at the shuttle to improve timing and balance.
- Contact the shuttle as high as possible and in front of your body  using a strong throwing action as if you are going to throw your racket  high and forward through the air.
- Straighten your elbow as you hit the shuttle.
- Snap down your wrist at the point of impact giving the shuttle extra power and angle towards your opponent’s court.
- Follow through with your racket and shift your weight from your rear foot to your front foot.
- Move back to your base position.

Backhand Smash

It is difficult to play a backhand overhead smash. Even experienced  players have problem with this badminton stroke. Try to play an ‘around  the head’ forehand smash whenever possible.
However, it is important that you know how to play the backhand  overhead smash. There are times when you just can’t play the shuttle  with your forehand.
Here are some pointers for playing a backhand overhead smash.
- Adopt the backhand grip.
- Turn your body so that your back is facing the net.
- Lead and shift your weight to your racket foot.
- Lift your arm from the shoulder with the forearm parallel to the floor.
- Hold the racket across your body with the racket head pointing down.
- Keep the racket arm and elbow close into your body.
- Hit the shuttle at a high point of contact and in front of your body.
- Flick down your wrist powerfully at the shuttle.
- A follow through is not needed.
- Move back to your base position.

Around the Head Smash

This is actually a forehand overhead badminton  smash played at the non-racket side of your body. Try to use it  whenever play permits as a forehand stroke is always better and more  powerful than a backhand.
The techniques for hitting this shot are about the same as the forehand overhead stroke with only some minor adjustments.
Here are some pointers for playing a forehand around the head smash.
- Stand squarely to the net.
- Bend your upper body sideways to your non-racket side as your arms come through.
- Shift your weight to your non-racket leg.
- Bend your elbow and bring the racket behind your head.
- As you swing forward, your forearm will brush the top of your head before straightening.
- Transfer your body weight rapidly as your non-racket leg pushes your body back to your base position.
An important thing to note here is that whether you are playing a badminton smash, a drop shot or a clear, your wrist plays a key part in creating deception.
The basic preparations for these badminton shots are the same, only the  angle of the racket face, the speed of the racket head and the point of  impact is different. Keep your opponent guessing.
Practice hard on your Badminton Smash and use it wisely. Be patient and wait for the opportunity to strike.

Cricket Bat Type and Its Impact on Playing Style

If you are a regular cricket player, it is very important that you choose the correct size bat.  This will enable you to play your game without any hindrance. To know whether the bat is of the right size, you should stand in your batting position and rest the toe of the bat against the outside of your back foot.

 

Now you may lean the cricket bat so that the top of the handle rests next to the inside groin of your front leg. For the bat to be of the perfect size it will rest comfortably next to your box on the inside groin of your front leg. If the size of the bat is either too small or too big, there are chances of you getting out leg before very often.

 

The Importance of Weight

 

The weight of your cricket bat should be given top priority. As far as possible you should try and choose a lighter bat. There are many players who make the mistake of buying a bat which is too heavy and that it results in poor performance. If you are a younger player you should not make the mistake of bating with a heavy bat. You will find it very difficult to sweep, cover drive or even hook a ball.

 

A short handle bat may weigh around 2’8 – 2’10 oz.  You need a lot of practice to manoeuvre with a heavier bat. The quality of cricket bats is recognized by taking into account the grade and type of the willow of the bat. Most bats are made from English Willow, which is a soft fibrous wood, with good striking qualities that will offer you the best option.

A Cheaper Option

Kashmir willow is considered to be a cheaper option but it is harder and quite durable. Mostly junior bats are made from this willow but English willow is preferred by professionals. The willow of cricket bats is graded on a scale from G1+ to G4. Top professionals use a willow grade of G1+ as it is considered to be the highest grade.

English willow is the best as it is unbleached with straight even grains and no marking or discoloration. It is worth its price. A grade 4 willow will always have an anti-scuff covering on its face as it is often non-oil. It is less expensive and considered to be of the lowest grade of willow.

Density and Softness

If you do not want your bat to break easily, then you may go for a harder bat. But if you want hitting power then you can opt for a soft bat; thus you should consider both of these factors while purchasing a bat.  There are various brands you can select from such as Slazenger, Gum and Moore, Gary Nicholls and Kookaburra.

To conclude, when you are selecting a bat that is perfect for you, you should make sure that you have all the information regarding the bat to help you make a correct decision. There are times when you may have to change bats during an innings, depending upon the type of bowler you are facing.
