To celebrate the career of Sir Alastair Cook, Gray-Nicolls has created a limited edition bat that charts the entire Test career of England's finest batsmen. Just 33 AC Excalibur cricket bats have been created, one for each of Cook's Test centuries.

Mid-bladed, and balanced with an offset profile for a sustained sweet-spot, the ‘AC Excalibur’ offers an unrivalled consistency, befitting the pedigree of its namesake.

Branded with both Gray-Nicolls' iconic red 'flash' and the insignia of the ‘AC Excalibur’, the blade represents a stunning fusion of form and function. From the dynamics of the bat, to the Arthurian inspired crest, every aspect has been lovingly considered.

This attention to detail is encapsulated on the spine of the bat with a unique set of decals that will leave cricket aficionados in their element, as each of Cook’s thirty-three Test centuries is listed, along with the date it was achieved and the opponent it was scored against. This story of Cook’s England career is then completed with a full statistical analysis of his time at the crease.

Made from Players' grade willow, the AC Excalibur cricket bat offers unblemished willow, coupled with fantastic performance. Weight for these bats will be between 2lb9 and 2lb 12oz.

Celebrate the career of Alastair Cook with this special collector's item.

Picking the right bat for you

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

Common Questions

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.
