Matthew Hayden’s Mongoose bat
If you been following the IPL Pro20 series that is currently underway in India, you may have noticed Australian and Chennai Super Kings Batsmen Matthew Hayden coming out to the middle with a rather odd-looking bat.
The bat, called “The Mongoose“, has been specifically been designed for Pro20 cricket. The blade of the bat is 33% shorter than a standard cricket bat, while the handle is 43% longer. The bat apparently also provides about 20% more power to the batsmen using it.
It’s great to see innovation been made in Cricket, and especially in Pro20. This bat definitely looks like it could be a game changer. For more info on the Mongoose bat, check out the informative information on the Wikipedia Page
