About CPL

The Cricket Performance Lab is a team of multi sport professionals that is dedicated to the relationship between athletes and bat.

We have taken 20+ years of golf and baseball experience studying how athletes interact with the implement they are swinging and applied it to cricket.

Our mission is to help players find the perfect blend of performance and preference to maximise in game performance.

Members of the Cricket Performance Lab team are currently working closely with the multiple Major League Baseball clubs to help them through in game data analysis and detailed biomechanical testing for their hitters.
