Newbery Navarone 5* Cricket Bat

Dominate on low, slow wickets with the Newbery Navarone 5* Cricket Bat in Black, a classic bat refined for the modern game.
Crafted for typical English conditions, the Navarone features a low middle to encourage you to step forward and put tentative deliveries where they belong: over the rope.

Its big swell gives you immense power on well-timed shots, while minimal concaving ensures you maintain control when you connect with more difficult balls.

Stickers-wise, it’s the premium Newbery treatment, decked out in black and gold for a classy look. On the back, you’ve got the Navarone’s signature wing graphics borrowed from the original design.


A legendary name in English cricket, Newbery have a reputation for quality that few can match.
It’s well deserved, too: their batmaking lineage goes back over a century and encompasses some of the most skilled makers in the history of the craft.

The story begins with Len Newbery, a master batmaker who was among the pioneers of cricket bat crafting techniques in the early 1900s. Len passed his skills on to his son, John, who quickly demonstrated his own prowess and became a respected figure within the industry.

In 1981, John struck out on his own and founded John Newbery Ltd, taking charge as master batmaker. It didn’t take long for his craftsmanship and eye for detail to pay dividends – he produced blades of such quality that players from around the world demanded Newbery bats.

John set the standard, and his team followed. To this day, long after his passing, every batmaker at the workshop knows the rule: only bats that would be good enough for John are good enough to bear the Newbery name.

Perfectly crafted with premium branding, there’s nothing classier than a Newbery bat. When you walk out to the crease with one in your hand, you feel that prestige, and with it comes a desire to perform at your best. Every innings is a chance to show what true quality looks like. That’s Newbery.

Grade 3

Very good quality willow that offers a balance between performance and looks. A popular, middle-of-the-road option, Grade Three bats are produced in large numbers and often represent the best value for money of any grade. Cosmetically, as much as half of the blade can be coloured wood, and you might find small knots or specks on any area of the bat. The face should typically have at least five grains, but they might not be as straight as on higher grades.

Please note that these are typical characteristics. While we work closely with our partner brands to provide the best bats for you, we are unable to guarantee a specific number of grains or the overall appearance of the willow on individual bats.

• Please note: While we understand how difficult it can be to select a bat online, we work closely with our partner brands to provide the best bat for you at each grade and price point. However, we are unfortunately unable to weigh individual bats or to guarantee a specific number of grains per bat
