My idea for this article was to offer information on which cricket bats to buy & what are their specialties. I also wanted to elaborate the several new bats cricket stores will be selling in coming months, but then ~ I realized how little I myself know about the latest available bats for sport called cricket..
Its been long since I started to write about cricket, but longer has been my days when I played the game. So, changing the plans from telling you which bats to buy, I've compiled an interesting story on which cricket bats (I mean of which manufacturing company) are used by batsman of top International teams like England, India, Australia, Pakistan, South Africa, West Indies, Sri Lanka and so forth.
Start with ever so famous bat of Indian Sachin Tendulkar. MRF produces cricket bats in 4 ranges - Genius Exclusive (of limited quantities), MRF Genius, MRF Vintage bats & MRF Blazer. You further go down this list, if more indepth information on MRF bats, which comes no cheaper than 69.95 for lowest quality & 139.95 for the top quality.
Ricky Ponting uses Kookaburra cricket bats. I'm sure you knew that, but did you know Kookaburra in fact makes 4 International quality cricket bats n one called Junior for small age learning cricket players. Kookaburra is the same manufacturer that is planning less vibration extra power bats & were forced to change Australian captain's kit, when 2005 Ashes series in England banned the batsman from using it. 'Kahuna cricket bats' is the full name of Ponting's bat, whereas other 3 options are Genesis, Beast & Ice cricket bats from the same Kookabura bat making company. These bats cost a lot less, in the range of 19.99 pounds to 99.
Talk about England team batsman, you have Andrew Strauss using Gary Nicolls bats, then Captain Michael Vaughan prefers a Gunn & Moore (GM) cricket bats. These bats will cost you a little more - price ranges from 29 UK pounds to 239 for the best quality ones.
Woodworm cricket bats are the latest brand into the market, used by English batters Kevin Pietersen & Andrew Flintoff. These will not be any cheap, around 180 pounds to 30 for the junior cricket bats, for boys ~ the would be Professional cricketers.
Puma & Slazenger bats for cricket has been serving world wide, currently used by South African Jacques Kallis & England middle order batsman Ian Bell. I certaily remember using something similar of same name, but none of them charged more like 20 pounds to 120.. There are some offers going to win the cricket bats for free, or just buy them at cheap price ranges, but I need to write a saperate post for that.. so, hold on for part 2.
