Aerodynamic drag is a force that resists the swinging force. The magnitude of the drag force depends in part upon how fast the bat is swung or, more precisely, upon the relative speed of the bat through the air. The drag force has twocomponents. One component is known as "pressure drag" or "form drag." Pressure drag is caused by the pressure difference between the front or leading end of an object and the rear or trailing end of the object as that object is moved through the air. The magnitude of the pressure drag depends primarily upon the size and shape of the object, as well as the velocity of the object. A blunt object, such as a cylinder, will incur more pressure drag than a streamlined object, such as an airfoil.

The reason why some cricket bats are curved and some are straight, is because depending on the batsmen if the bat is curved the player is usually more aggressive, as a pose to someone who has a straight bat who would probably play with less aggression.
