No! We need to encourage as many people as possible to buy bats based on how they look rather than how they play. Its only because so many people pay over-the-odds to get bats with 12 perfectly straight grains that those of us who don't really care about aesthetics are able to get a bargain by getting 2nd/3rd grade bats that ping just as well but for half the price.

Don't need the encouragement ;)  :D :D :D :D



In my defence I was offered the bat as it was for an International player and just so happened go look amazing. Nev had a bat with grains so laser straight!

Not played with it yet but just oiling it at the moment..

The player does not play with the AM livery... Also players who have played with AM bats as sponsored players include Younis Khan, Misbah, Afridi and Muhammed Wasim... They just don't have the same profile in recent years. If its been good enough source of bats for them it's more than good enough for me. In fact its a beauty!

I am sure the player does source some of his bats from all over the place.

I was offered it plain but I was happy to put AM stickers on as it was them who made it...

Just like the other thread saying Kholi mainly uses SS, but I'm sure he uses a wide variety of bats... I've seen photos of him with blank CA.

In recent times I have seen kyle Jarvis Zimbabwe  player using a bat with AM sticker on it.

As for international players they get bats from different bat makers.

The CA bat in question here was sent by Shoib Malik Pakistan International player on Kolhi's request.

To not put the legitimate value of a product on the customs form is an illegal practice, each to their own but I'm quite happy paying the taxes I'm meant to be paying.

Next thing you'll be complaining our public services are under funded...

This !!

Really? What about that ? You didn't pay your customs duty out of "duty"? Why didn't you do your part in funding "public services?


I ordered the cage and it was sent from UK.
United States customs called me to find out what the heck was it, and I said batting cage for my kids. So they let it go without putting any duties on me.

Cricket bats should be exempt especially in places with low-to-no market or industry. They are low value items that most people in the world wouldn't know what to do with.

Even if duty was exempt it would still not match the rebates bat manufacturers in Asia are granted.

Frankly, thats a dumb assessment and an even dumber question to ask.

The answer is simple and straight, I didnt try to cheat the system by devaluing the cost of my purchase.
There was a sales receipt attached to the package and it had full price of the item clearly marked.

I spoke to a custom officer who asked what is it? And. I truthfully replied as to what it was.

It was then her job and her discretion to assess whether there is a duty or tax on it? I think she knew the U.S., custom laws more than you and I. And I think U.S, and U.K custom and import duty/taxes laws are different.

And if there was a duty or tax on my item, she wouldve charged me 100% of it because she wasnt my puphi ki beyti
But since there wasnt any US duty or import tax on the item, I wasnt asked to pay any.

How hard is it to understand?

Just a quick update on my bat.

Gave two coats of oil, knocked in for probably couple of hours with special attention given to the sharp edges. It was so soft, very easy to dent. Also applied scuff sheet.

To counter the weight, put significant amount of counter balancing. Used an old grip and cut it into small pieces for counterbalance (Thanks to advice by Aussie fast bowler).

It is now 2.12

So had a nets session today. Must say that i m really happy with it so far

There are no dumb questions only dumb answers and yours (above) fully qualifies.

They didn't charge you even if there was a full price listed? So, technically, cricket equipment is duty exempt whether value is listed or not. Why the hell were you jumping up and down in the other thread claiming moral high ground?! I paid more on a cricket bat duty then you did on your rickety setup, so you should STFU.
