Grace Harris welcomed back her favourite bat with fine style against the Thunder. Find out why she names them after McDonalds burgers.

In a league sponsored by all things fried chicken, sometimes all a player wants is a juicy beef burger. 

While her side did not get the win, Brisbane Heat batter Grace Harris found some runs with a ‘Big Mac’. 

Harris said she named all her bats after her favourite McDonald’s menu items. 

“Big Mac was back, I’ve been batting with Barbecue Angus and McNugget lately because I broke the toe,” she said. 

“They’re a little bit lighter, but Big Mac is back and in business again, she’s got me runs this season so I’m going with it.”

All of Harris’ bats are designed for different conditions, with the heavier ‘Big Mac’ to Thunders’ slower attack. 

Harris said the bat she used was based on opponent and conditions. 

“They’re all slightly weighted different and have slightly different middles, and are for different conditions,” she said.

“Big Mac is a bit heavier, perfect sweet spot and a lower middle as well so it’s good for wickets that slide on. 

“McNugget is a lower middle but slightly lighter, so good if you come up against a faster attack or a wicket that bounces, she’s a beauty to pull. 

“McRoyal was my deadset favourite but she’s broken and now retired. 

“Cheeseburger is my old reliable, it’s a standard order when you’ve had a big night and you need a cheeseburger.”

Harris enjoyed a fine return of form with ‘Big Mac’, scoring 50 off 34 deliveries in the nine-run loss.

Brisbane now sits third on the WBBL ladder, one win behind Perth and Melbourne Renegades.
