A few weeks back we featured an article that introduced the Old School Cricket Bats Hall of Fame. Now it’s the turn of thinking about some of the bats of the future. One particular “bat of the future” is that of the Mongoose brand. The most notable outing for “the bat equivalent of a cluster bomb” came back in March when that bully Matthew Hayden smashed six fours and seven sixes off his first 35 balls on his way to 74 off 38 balls to propel his Chennai Super Kings to beat Delhi in this year’s IPL.
“As England bid to retain the Ashes down under this winter, revolutionary cricket brand, Mongoose, has launched its new premium MMi3 cricket bat, designed to enable players to hit the ball even faster, harder and further. The MCC approved bat is scientifically proven to provide 15% more bat speed and 20 % more power than a conventional bat.
You too can follow in the footsteps of Mongoose ambassadors such as Matthew Hayden, James Anderson and Stuart Law and wow team-mates with more sixes and increased batting averages.
Custom made bats are available, made from top grade English Willow and come in weights ranging from light (size 4, junior bats) to heavy (3 lb).
Mongoose bats cost from £50.00 (RRP) for junior bats and from £150-£329 (RRP) for adult bats. For a full list of retailers, please visit:

What do you think of the Mongoose cricket bats? Does it give batsmen an unfair advantage? How effective are the bats?
