Bat Making / Re: First attempt
« Last post by jonny77 on Today at 03:03:31 PM »
Similar here.  I can see the third pic of the new bat, but the two above it have "image not found or removed" in their place.

Agree the rounded toe looks better. 
Second bat looks to have really thin shoulders, but might just be the angle if it's 2 10.  Does the bottom of the handle have a flat edge where it meets the shoulders, or is that just a trick of the light?
Looks well finished though - great job!

Thanks for the feedback mate, appreciate it. Yeah the shoulders are thinnish, but there's enough in em I think. They're the same as my Blank Bats. The handle is a little square at the bottom, but only at the very very bottom where it goes into the shoulders. In hindsight I should have rounded these but unless it's being seriously choked it shouldn't be an issue.

As Stewie said at the same giving assurances on a batting slot in a performance based sport just wasn't his bag; also Sibley dined off that double hundred against Yorkshire for a bit too long.

On the other hand this is brilliant from Borthwick and Jacks considering we were 64-5

Other Gear / Re: Cleaning Bola Balls

I'd imagine that if the balls are coated with 'gunk', then the throwing wheels would also have a coating?
A good soak in some hot water and detergent should soften most things, and a wire brush would be the easiest way of scrubbing things clean.
Also thought that a trip through the dishwasher might help, depending on how well you and the missus see eye to eye.

England / Re: England Vs Ireland and Pakistan

As it is far too late to try out any other top order batsmen, my 15 would the following:

Roy
Bairstow (backup keeper)
Root
Morgan
Buttler (Keeper)
Stokes
Vince
Rashid
Ali
Dawson
Woakes
Archer
Curran
Wood
Willey

Initial starting XI
Roy
Bairstow
Root
Morgan
Buttler
Stokes
Ali
Woakes
Curran
Archer
Rashid

Yep bang on Pete, this is exactly how i have it as well.

However, i have a feeling it will be Willey who gets the chop (sounds painful :o :() and they will stick with Denly as he is Smith's pet project.

Bats / Re: Anyone familiar with this brand in Australia?

Ask your mate for a picture of the top of the handle, that is frequently a decent give away for the source of the bat.

The names of the players on the stamps on the edge look more Pakistani than Indian or Australian too...!

Never heard of that brand, but I was always under the impression SG made all of kookas bats. So even if what your friend says is true then they are just the usual stickered up indian jobs. Fully Knocked in stickers are always a bit of a red flag though.
