Not boasting here but I've scored over 50 centuries and all of them were with a bat that cost less than 200 (so no grade 1+ super fabulous 45mm edge, offset edge, part concaved, with special handle inserts , embossed sparkly stickers, or whatever rubbish is spouted on here) apart from about 6 which I got with a Laver from 2006 to 2008 that I paid just over 200 for.

Apart from the last 2 years all my bats have been bought blind on the Internet or from a sports shop or bat maker based on me saying oval handle 2.10 please.

And not once have I weighed it once I got it but I always got them mid season, knocked them in for 6 months got used to them and only ever used a bat until it was knackered. So maximum I had was 1 useable bat at any time.

50 centuries now that is impressive. How long have you been playing cricket ?

Whew, interesting question.

I've made enough tons now that I couldn't give a definitive list but a couple spring to mind.  One was in my "salad days" - a Northern League D1 ton no less, all using an Open Championship that cost 25 (admittedly this is 18 years ago); another score, sadly only 85*, came with a 15 SD Kashmir Slazenger...

101* using a 606 GM hero, it was my first ever ton so will always be special to me. I was only using it as my main bat has a crack in the toe, the 606 is covered in cracks and the face is delaminating, but my god does it still go!!!

40* from no.11 using a cheap bleached bat called a 'Top Banana' from All Round cricket.

It even had a yellow grip and stickers.

Here we are all showing that we've scored plenty of runs without needing the whitest,  straightest grained,  beautiful willow... More evidence we are addicts...
