If he waves a CA around in the 2019 World Cup, then this is a great signing!

Didn't James Franklin use CA while he was at Middlesex, maybe some sort of connection there?

Not going to deny it, I wanted to order a CA after seeing Morgan holding a CA. :D

As @Alvaro pointed it out to me - Morgan's manager (Naill O'Brien) is also sponsored by CA so maybe he had a input.

Bit harsh that! Although have to agree they are way more expensive than many other Pakistani brands. However I do think they have the best finishing than any Pakistani brand.

I feel CA is able to inflate their prices due to the market share and the brand value, it is most sought out and preferred Pakistani brand.

Just like what you said, "best finishing than any Pakistani brand" that speaks about CA's brand value, although I would say the best finishing and perhaps most reliable Pakistani brand is MIDS in my opinion.

How can you tell how good the finishing is? The willow is about 98% covered by stickers!  ;)

I have personally used a few and they have been amazing! Many people in my league use them and love them. Good bats do cost a bit of money if you don't know how to pick "gems" from a pile of low priced bats. Or, if you personally have a great bat maker make a bat for you and charge you a reasonable price.

Bat game is rigged the same by all.

I have a 2.8 CA Shoaib Malik Signature bat. I would be amazed if any other bat at 2.8 can match it's performance.

I have personally used ca for a long time. 3 years ago i had a plus 5000 and last year i got a dragon series 50mm. Many of my teammates use ca as well ranging from 3000 all the way up to 15000 player edition 7 star bats. And guess what out of about 15 of the ca bats i have seen in use there is a 100% occurance of delaminated edges and toe very very early in their life. Sometimes even while knocking in. Dont get me wrong they have all performed fantastic. But the durability of Ca bats is questionable at best. The dragon series bat which i shelled a  lot of cash on didnt even last a whole season and i bat at 8. One fine day i middled a slog to midwicket and a chunk of wood snapped right off from the side  of the bat. Not to mention there is no consistency in shapes or weights. Moreover their customer service and attitude is apalling as well. In addition if u have a look at their recent range of bats, the Ca plus 15000 bat which is supposed to be their grade 1 bats dont even pass for grade 3 bats anymore. I for one will never be spending my money on Ca bats anytime soon. They used to be great! Now theyr just riding their popularity and give zero effs about quality
