Best Answer

I'd say a 6 or 7.

Not too heavy but not too light that it will break during your stroke.

If you want to be totally sure the bat is right for you, stand up straight with your arms hanging down and if the bat reaches your wrist it is the right size also, If you can hold the bat horizontally above the ground with your weak arm and you dont shake it means that its the right one for you!

Good luck

well it depends how tall they are make sure its not a heavy bat or it will be hard to hold the bat up for the backswing and difficult to lead the bat with the left hand like your supposed to. Im 5 foot 4 (dont worry im not a midget im a 14 year old girl) and my bat is size 6 realy you just have to shop around with the child to find a bat they find easy to hold and not to small or to tall

How can you stroke your cricket bat with a season ball in just 2 days?

It usually takes anywhere between 15 to 30 hours to properly stroke in a cricket ball. The recommended process has two stages. Stage 1: Start with a old cricket ball (sometimes called 'season' ball), and gently strike the bat face. Ensure that the edges and toe of the bat get special attention. Then, using an mallet (either wooden head or ball head), strike the bat face with added pressure. While every bat is different - largely depending on the quality of the willow and the degree to which it was pressed during manufacture - it is a good idea to spend at least 10-20 hours in stage 1. When the ball stops making marks on the bat face on impact, it is time to move to stage 2. Stage 2: Ideally done in the batting nets. Ask a buddy to throw a old cricket ball (from a half-pitch distance) and use the bat to hit the ball. Gradually increase the speed of the throws and the strokes. Again, there is no precise timeline, but this stage should take 5-10 hours. Once the bat has a nice 'ping' when it strikes the ball, it is ready for match play. Can this be accomplished in 2 days? Possible - but it will take atleast 15 hours of work. All the best!
