Most pros have 3 bats at least, 1 for nets and a couple of match bats.

Couple are heavier options...mainly because he can :)

dont get me wrong, I own 6 bats (only 6 :o) but i only over the course of the season used 3 of them, 2 lightly in nets.
5 for one tour and he's not even a batsmen, regardless of his 'allrounder' tag

Despite not being a top 5 bat they will still net daily meaning wear and tear on the bats.

If he was on tour in the UK he'd prob carry less but if one breaks in Oz them you don't want the hassle of having to source something that fits your profile/weight/sponsor whilst trying to concentrate on other things.

I'm sure a footballer takes more than 1 pair of boots to a game, studs/moulded/blades/spare pair etc :)

So 5 bats for a tour lasting several months is "too many" but 3 pairs of boots for a game that's only got 2 halves is acceptable. Struggling to see your logic mate  ;)

the variables, pack the bag the night before, will the ground be hard? soft? moulded studds, blades or proper studs, depends which are cleanest, if any of them are still wet from week before.

I dont NEED to take 3 pairs, my boot obsession is stronger than my bat obsession if i'm honest

Oh and I have a strong dislike towards Stuart Broad, hence why I even posted on the thread aha

He might have one for nets, one for warm up matches, one for tests, one for ODIs and one for T20's!
Not really variables but I tried haha

If I was an international cricketer and I had a sponsor the size of Adidas, and they came to me with five bats and said here use these and we'll pay you for it - I wouldn't say no either! I'd say five is a normal amount considering they're in fact away for five months apparently! How many of us go through or use five bats in a season on here as well?
