"It is the biggest bat in the world and we hope it will have a place in the Guinness Book of World Records".

This is great. Sign of the time I guess. This kind of sponsorship was only a dream even 6/7 years ago. Good for our cricket.

Thanks for the picture. It's astounding there has been little or no coverage of this initiative on the world media. Surprisingly the Indians were the first to report it.

Anyway, they should display the bat on a place of interest, preferably in a museum or sporting establishment.

Poor me too! I just now have seen the picture in cricinfo. I don't know how I overlooked this interesting thread.

Understood that this bat is built by Lemo - Akiz Group. 70 feet long and it's carried to diffent places in Bangladesh and fans are signing on it. I wonder how many people will be able to sign. This will be given to Bangladesh as a greeting. What an amazing idea!! Thanks for such a wonderful initiative.

IMO, this should be placed in one of our stadiums, on top of the pavillion. Very very inspirational.
