What type of wood are all professional cricket bats made of?

Answer:

WILLOW

If you've ever watched a cricket match with commentary, you've probably heard the expression "the sound of leather on willow", referring to the cricket ball being successfully hit into the stratosphere. The term is pretty descriptive by design: White willow has been the wood of choice for cricket bats for many years. In fact, all professional cricket bats around the world are made from willow, revered for its mechanical strength and resilience. As cricket has grown in population globally, willow growers have struggled to keep up with demand. While studies have been done to try and find an alternative material, no other wood has the springy yet sturdy fabrication cricket players are so fond of. (Bamboo, however, which is a grass, does show some promise, although it makes bats heavier.) Source: BleacherReport.com | Date Updated: May 27, 2021
