    A New Cricket Bat

    http://www-aus.cricket.org/link_to_d...t-company.html

    Personally I think this one will go the way of the double sided bat (making it easier to play the reverse sweep, because yeah it's a pretty common part of the game...........DUH!) and the bat with the S-shaped handle.............

    But then again, it's not quite as radical as the others. Who knows? Maybe we'll eventually have bats that look like Celtic swords!

    Last season I had an average of around 43, but that was after a couple of good scores. It was the season before that that I was REALLY bad.

    I haven't bowled particularly often but my average for School over Years 9 and 10 was 11.09 so that's not too bad. I'm just inconsistent as anything - I go from 4-0-11-2 to 1-0-9-0...
