I have seen 1 or 2 play, typical pakistani bat & looks awfully similar to the CA bat.

Quite a few around in our league. A couple swears to them.
As above, pretty standard CA and or Pakistani bats. My understanding is, that they're just cheaper and easier to get good bulk buy prices from.

Big time cheats. Stay away. I have a whole big story to tell about them. Had to take it up to Sialkot Chamber of commerce but unfortunately chamber of commerce was bribed by them & closed the case in their favor.

We were from India were on a tour to Sri Lanka & happened to see a nice players edition CX bat there. After coming back we thought we'll order some 10 bats for the club. I took the initiative & contacted them on their whatsapp number. This cheat ,Syed Bilal was on the other end. I gave him all the specs, weight range etc for all the bats & he agreed to them. I even sent them a mail of all the details. Since we cant do payments from India to Pakistan I asked my friend in Dubai to make the payment & he did. After a week or so I asked about the progress & Syed showed me some pics of really beautiful bats. They were shipped via DHL & after 4 days I got them. The moment of truth......I opened the package to find 10 kashmir willow bats. I immediately called him. No response. Took the pics & mssgd him. No response for 2 days. Then I called up their landphone. A guy called Muddassar Jamil picked the call & I narrated everything. He gave his cell number & told me to contact him the next day. The next when I mssgd him to my shock he clearly denied that those bats were not theirs. Then I wrote posts on their facebook pages( they have multiple pages). Nothing happened. Then finally I wrote to the Sialkot chamber of commerce with the whatsapp conversation screen shots, pics of bats, pics of the box which had from address. No response for almost a week. Then after a week the vice president of SCC replied stating that the company had not sent any bats to India & closed it. After N number of follow ups nothing happened.

You should have made a Paypal transaction (i think works from India as well) and you would have been covered. That's a bitter pill to swallow, wish you could recover the money somehow.

Paypal doesnt work in India.

India to Pak money transfer is not easy. Most people who really want a CA or MB do similar - get friends overseas to send funds to the factory in Pak.

But Amrit is right - should always get paypal transfers in this case. Pakistan is highly risky venture -  I once got a few CA bats from a more "known" place - turned out to be well made fakes (almost impossible to tell as they had the holograms and edge stamps etc). Sold them as plain bats in the end for a loss. Ah well, you live and learn.

Lately there has been so many scams going on from PAK like any random guy makes a facebook page and start posting pics of bats in order to scam innocent buyers.
Always do your homework and google is king so search first about the source, name or phone numbers may clear up things a bit.
Anyways SIALKOT shop is only reliable i have know and bought but i dont guarantee a good customer service from any of south asian sources.

Same here. Ordered few bats, softs and recently white balls for nets. Good customer service and responsive on emails/facebook messages.

Make sure you tell them weight in grams when ordering your bats.
