GN Legend Cricket Bat
The Legend. A title with a lot to live up to, but one that genuinely befits this bat's prestigious reputation at the pinnacle of the game.
Reimagined for the 2019 range, this latest iteration of our most historic mark has been designed with two simple tenants in mind: the bringing together of aesthetic beauty and uncompromised performance.
The application of precision branding which is laser-etched on to the bat encapsulates the high quality and provenance of the Legend mark while the handcrafted blade, with its concaved profile and mid-swell, makes for a remarkably well-balanced bat with the lightest of pick-ups.
This is a genuinely stunning marriage of form and function, to compliment the stroke play of the game's most stylish hitters.
Made with the absolute highest quality English willow, hand selected to be part of our premium collection, the Legend features perfect looking wood and multiple clean grains. Handmade in Robertsbridge, the Legend is a triumph of quality and performance.
Unassuming class and technological excellence place the Legend range at the zenith of the Gray-Nicolls collection, with kit that will be sure to put your game on centre stage. It's time to make your legend, with Gray-Nicolls premium collection.

Picking the right bat for you
When selecting a cricket bat, it's crucial that you pick one that is the correct size for the player. If it's too small or too big, batting will be uncomfortable and performance will be compromised.
Bat size is based on the height of the player. Take a look at our handy Size Guide to see which bat size you should choose.
SH = Short Handle
LH = Long Handle
LB = Long Blade
SM = Small Men's
Use our weight ranges to see which bat you should buy.

How do I care for my bat?
We recommend knocking your cricket bat in before use. You may also want to add a layer of linseed oil. Store your bat in a dry place when not in use.
See our blog on how to care for your new cricket bat including tips on adding linseed oil and replacing scuff sheets here.
How do I knock my bat in?
Using an old ball in a sock or a Deluxe Bat Mallet, hit the face of your cricket bat to condition the wood. You can also hit the edges of the bat with glancing blows, and gently hit the toe. You do not need to knock in the splice (top) of the bat.
What size bat do I need?
Please refer to our bat size guide to determine the size of the bat you require.
