this can work too.

Personally I would just use a "half grip" cut to suit the handle - but this padded strapping tape can work. I have used this in the past to create a more oval feel to a handle - well eggshape in that case!

Oh really, even better! Had plenty nets use though! Do you own it Tom? Just any tape i can find for the lower handle, electrical tape, fabric tape, it's only a small amount just to make it feel a bit more comfy. Also if I have a bat with an oval handle I tend to use a bit more
No it's part of Marcus' collection, I just had it to copy.

Exactly as he comes across in interviews and on the field, very friendly and articulate.

He is always up for an autograph or photo. Even up for a chat when I stopped him on the stairs in te pavilion!

Tried putting tape in tonight and didn't like it, it gave the bat a horrible hard/solid feeling in the handle with an uneven shape. Disappointing :( ....

He injured his ankle in the T20 1/4 final against Notts, he landed awkwardly on it. Don't know whether that was a sprain/strain which has got better because he hasn't rested. Or whether its anything more than that ie. achilles
