17 to start up a company thats incredible!
It's incredibly easy, setting up Itias would rank incredibly low on my list of achievements. Setting up this forum, turning it into a profitable business, having upto 100 members at any one time and then selling it would be higher.

Tom in reply to your post about Mongoose cricket do you think it will ever take off big time? I know there are a few international players using it now like ashraful of Bangladesh. . .but do you think it will ever be able to compete with traditional bats across all formats or do you simply see it as 20/20 bat that merely compliments the tradiational design i.e something that a crickerter would have in his bag alongside a traditional bat rather than replacing it?

The MMi  will never be a Test match bat and we'd never sell it as such. Although it has it's uses in Club cricket. Particularly as people are often playing on wet, slow wickets against not always the quickest bowlers. I think it will be popular amongst youngsters too.

The CoR3 the more traditional yet spliceless bat will be our bigger seller in the next year I'd think, it's already being put to good use on the International circuit, with players being signed (still yet to announce a main marquee player) and being stocked in most retailers it will be pretty popular.

Anderson won't be a marquee player for them I wouldn't have thought as hes a bowler, although he has already been signed.

Great idea for a topic. Thanks for starting it - I've really enjoyed reading through your answers so far.

Tom - Does this mean the Itias website will be closing down at some point in the future? Do you have any ambition to run your own cricket equipment company again in the future?
