I think it was a combination of 6 buckets of constant Yorkers, the hard floor and the bola balls. Something had to give eventually and it was the toe of my bat!

Move the stumps back while the feeder isn't looking, turns into juicy halfvolley followed by juicy half volley

Different environment/match conditions:
- wet conditions
- t-20
- cheap balls
- change in batting order

Different physical conditions:
- shoulder aches and need for a light weight bat
- hand injury, grip issues.

^ On the point.

You could always ask the feeder to stop bowling yorkers to

Yeah but if you ask those who are proper batters on the forum(a loose term I grant you) with 10 bats 20 bats 30 bats ! How many of them would change their bat presuming it ain't broke when they are scoring runs I wonder what the answer would be.

Not many I would venture, and that makes the other bats redundant!!

You change a bat when you get a duck!!

If your scoring runs, why on earth would you change it??





I was of the thought last year "if it rains I'll use my net bat, the warners not going anywhere near a damp pitch"

Damp pitch comes and "well I got 74 with it last week and it felt so good, bit of rain won't hurt it........."

I didn't have to change mine all season!
I couldn't hit it off the square admittedly, but I didn't get a duck  :(

Someone must have asked you why you have so many bats. What was your answer?  :)

I bat to avoid getting a duck as
There's no way I am going to be presented with  that plastic duck on a rope at the clubs dinner to wear all night

Actually most of my teammates are unaware of my collection.  :)
Also, most of them are so unobservant I could use a different bat every ball I faced in a net session and they wouldn't notice

Thinking about getting a daft pink Spartan. See if anyone notices.

I have more than one bat because each extra one I get, I think will make me a better batsman. I live in a state of constant disappointment.
