    Icon4 Cricket Bat Mystery

    I bought a cricket bat at Auction. The bat was donated by Jeff Thomson. It has the following names on it: Barry Richards, Graeme Pollack, Desmond Haynes, Joel Garner, Sunil Gavaskar, Geoff Boycott, Ian Chappell, Clive Lloyd, Jeff Thomson, Asif Iqbal, Ravi Shastri, Tony Greig, Richie Benaud, Richard Hadlee, Imran Khan, Michael Holding, Bob Willis, Lee Irvine, Kris Srikanth, Keith Stackpole and one other undecipheable signature.

    The names and authencity were verified by Richard Hadlee but I have forgotten what era the bat was signed in and what for. I thought it was World Team 70's but cannot recall and I am unable to get on to Thommo or Hadlee to confirm.

    Can anyone help??

    If no one has any ideas, I'll ask Sir Richard for you.

    I thought you'd be calling him "Paddles" by now, James.

    And be careful he doesn't charge you for his time.

    Thanks James. Sir Richard may recall the Auction was at the Mooloolaba Masters Golf week held at Mooloolaba, Queensland every year. He is the NZ Captain. I thought I may be able to contact Sir Richard through his friend and mine, Glenn Buckland but Glenn has been away overseas for sometime and out of contact. Sir Richard originally provided me with the names and I understood that there are only 23 in the World held by each of those who signed the bat. Perhaps this can be confirmed as well. I am trying to insure it and attempting to gain its value.

    Well I hope once they do know they don't tell us straight away, but give us clues so we can see who can solve it first

    I tried but no success, make sure you let us know who he is

    When I was a kid I was worried if I ever became a Test cricketer no one would be able to read my scrawl. After seeing those efforts I had nothing to worry about
