Shockwave 4 Star Cricket Bat
The Shockwave 4 Star bat enables you to dominate – no – change the game of cricket. Bowling attacks will wilt, then marvel, at the power you can generate with the new Gray-Nicolls weapon.
The bright colours and aggressive designs are perfect for the modern cricketer looking to make an impact. If this sounds like you, the Shockwave is the cricket bat for you. Join the Gray-Nicolls revolution as we smash into the new era.
With a high middle and pronounced swell, the Shockwave 4 Star will give you the power needed to dominate bowling attacks. An ideal bat for a good level club cricketer or friendly player, it will allow you to clear the boundary consistently and with ease, without compromising with weight.
The Shockwave 4 Star cricket bat has huge edges that mean maximum distance even when the timing is minimal. That means value for shots, and despair for bowlers.
The fractured sticker effect of the Shockwave emanates from the middle of the bat and exaggerates the sweet spot, while the jagged graphics add to the intimating feel. The Shockwave is perfect for modern cricket.
As with all Gray-Nicolls designs, the Shockwave was created after months of research and design, and developed with some of our leading cricketers including Alex Hales and Joe Clarke.
Made with the English willow, the Shockwave 4 Star will have some blemishes on wood, with slightly looser, less frequent grains, but with the guarantee of unbeatable Gray-Nicolls performance.

SH = Short Handle
LH = Long Handle
LB = Long Blade

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.
