I was wondering whether members had any knowledge of the kind of bats sold in Bangladesh. My father's going to Bangladesh in about a month and I want him to get me a bat from there. I already have a collection of Kookaburra, Slazenger and Gray Nicolls bats here in Australia, but have no clue on what bat brands are used there. Any help would be appreciated. :)

Umm...if you're playing in Australia you wouldn't want to use Bangladeshi bats. Bangladeshi bats have a low sweet spot which in Australia wouldn't be ideal as I understand that the pitches in Australia are bit more bouncier than in Bangladesh. Your current bats probably have a lower middle sweet spot which are better suited for the pitches in Australia.

If I'm not mistaken, SHAH manufactures bats in BD. Otherwise, mostly imported from Pakistan and India...Ihsaan, SS, AJ etc.

Thanks for your help everyone :)
I think most bats in BD are imported from India and Pakistan as BanCricFan said, and I wasn't really interested in using one during a match. It's more of a collection, but I still would prefer the best quality bat there.

Ash plays with Rbk. Now Hablu followed him. Mahela also plays with this one.

Al Hasan used to play with CA, so as SN. Now Shakib plays with SS. CA is the bat of Inzy

Mashud used to play with MALIK. When I first saw Pakistan's Shoaib Malik playing with a Malik bat, then I thought "wow, he wrote his name in his bat" :-|

Now decide which one to buy.

Thanks a lot BD-Shardul :)
I like the shape of the Reebok one. I also like the CA one. Toss up between those 2 most likely.

i think u cud go for Reebok bats. most of the asian players r using it now a days. even Chris gayle usues reebok. and may be u can try for some hand made bats. may b from india..or there is one in the UK called Fusion. they deal with Gray nicles.

I bought a SF bat from Inter Sports (elephant road) 3 yrs ago and it was great. Light pickup, low sweet spot. Great bat if u want to play in the air. BD players were used to use this bat before. I will probably go with Matrixx now for this season.

A bat with light pick up and a pretty low sweet spot sounds good to me, though the reebok looks to be the most popular in terms of international choices. I'm going for one only used in Asia since I have plenty of Australian and international brand bats. CA 10000 sounds good according to Sadi, as well as the Matrixx (Tamim uses it :-D). I'll have to ask my father to buy a few more than just one...doubt he'll fit it all into his baggage limit though...Thanks again everyone :)

whatever u do, make sure its proper english willow and not kashmir willow and also avoid the ones that say 'english willow nutured in india', as thats the same as kashmir lolz. U probably know this but also do tell ur father to test the spring on the bat etc.

'Deshi Jhata' might also be a good option! This has been used to a good effect by some of our legendary players, JO in particular.

this is my bat

Lovely to use the flick of the wrist with this bat, which is harder to do with more curved bats, which I dislike.

And the pick up is so light, its amazing, produces a lovely ping when you hit it dead on the mid bald sweet spot.

the vampire bat that i use is wonderful if you are a driver or cutter, or like to use chip shot straight down the ground
its really great:

You live in the U.S.

Tough luck buddy. I have no clue, especially since they're from Bangladesh. I'm sticking the good old Australian Kookaburra bats. :)

Stupid question one of you can answer quick for me pls:

Are all bats the same length and width?

In other words, does 6'1 Mashrafe have the same size bat as a 5'3 Mushfique?

Can the handle be longer or shorter according to the height of the player?

Is there anything called a "standard official bat size" by the ICC?

as far as i know, there are two main types of bat which international players use. The standard one is called 'short handle''[which doesnt have a short handle,its just a traditional name] Short handle bats are recomended for players upto 5'11' and if u are 6' or above you should use something known as 'longblade' which is a touch longer than the short handle, probably 3 cm longer,im not sure. I personally use a longblade, and now when i play with a short handle, it gives me a lot of trouble. So 3 cm is a big deal
there is a specific width of cricket bat, but im not sure about the width

What is the brand of the bat Mash usually use? I think Aftab used to use the same brand. Is that a local brand or Indian/Pakistani?

i think ca is good and so is rbk but mrf bats are underrated. my mrf has the best stroke compared to my previous bats including bas (vampire) also a good bat, my rbk blast, and a friends gm bat.

NO. Kashmir willow = money WASTED.

DO NOT buy that bat. It's cheap too - suggesting poor quality.

i have the kookaburra genesis and SS 5000 'custom'.

both are beautiful bats. but now that i've become more of a batsman i think the SS (bought in bd) works best.

I bought this bat that is called CA 9000 (from Inter Sport, Elephant Rd, Bangladesh). It is a laminated bat. Can anyone tell me how good the bat is compared to other bats and also if i made a good choice in buying this laminated bat?
