So, almost the entire part of this bat becomes a sweet spot.

This is a statement of intent.  Walking out with this bat you announce your attention to hit boundaries. The attacking bowler will know you are aiming to play big shots.  It is a declaration of war!  This is no normal bat and you need to practice with this bat to know how to use it to its maximum effect.

If you can master the basic stroke play, this bat can transform your score sheet into something special.  In order to do that you will need to stay calm, stay focused and select the right shot for the delivery. If you are going to go after every ball just throwing bat after ball, thinking it is a magic want – you will fail. If you go after every ball with a clear mind, keen eye and intent – you will have great fun.

 

You have a long handle that gives you speed and power.  The whole bat is a sweet spot.  Combine that with a calm mind and a keen eye.

I pity the attacking bowlers.

3. Mongoose CoR3- Mongoose bats

I always liked the thought process behind the original bats with the splice elevated into the handle to maximise the hitting area of the bat and the profile volume spread throughout the blade to take advantage of this.

The CoR3 was the more conventional of the original two bats Mongoose released way back in 2007. Originally made by Tim Keeley, production was shifted offshore to TON. This bat is circa 2013/14 and still brand new. Mongoose finally closed up shop after a few different owners and a total of four profiles including MMi, Torq and Rebel in 2016, although the webpage is still active.

I always liked the thought process behind the original bats with the splice elevated into the handle to maximise the hitting area of the bat and the profile volume spread throughout the blade to take advantage of this. Was it a gimmick? Well the shortest bladed MMi (brick on a stick) was certainly a 20/20 only bat and to be honest embarrassing to use.

The CoR3 had a longer blade and 10 years on does not look out of place in the short form of the game with Kookaburra UK, Phantom, GM and others now producing short blade long handled bats.

What is different, unique and special about the Mongoose cricket bat?

The Mongoose Bat gives you more control over the willow. Mainly it assists with Bat speed, which will be beneficial in the shorter formats (T20s) of the game.

 It will assist the aggressive batsman.

 On the other hand, it will be difficult to defend with, as you will have less willow behind the ball.This unique blade is 33% shorter and the handle is 43% longer than the conventional Cricket Bat. This design enables the batsman to get more power from the bat. Because of the longer grip, your hands can be further away from each other.

One misconception associated with the Mongoose bat is that it was banned by BCCI and IPL governing body; which was not the case. These governing bodies did review the complaints associated with the bat but they still did not ban it.

 Every bat has a sweet spot. If the ball hits at perfect timing and appropriate power is supplied by a batsman, the ball travels a longer distance with a very large speed, and most probably, crosses the boundary. Due to the structure and weight distribution of the bat, which earns it the name of “half-brick on a stick”, this bat provides 20% more power and 15% more bat speed than a normal bat. So, almost the entire part of this bat becomes a sweet spot.

 After Matthew Hayden’s retirement, no player used this bat, and thus the rumour spread that this bat has been banned. This bat also follows the restrictions set on the size of the bat from October 2017. So there is no rule in cricket which bans the use of this bat.

This bat was a very good example of one of the greatest scientific development in the equipment of cricket ever. However, just one flaw of this beautiful bat ousted it completely from the cricketing world, and it is highly doubted that we see its use in International Cricket ever.

The Mongoose range is available below.

  • All of these bats are manufactured out of English Willow.
  • It has a 33% shorter Blade and a 43% longer handle.
  • Will assist batsman with quick hand speed through the ball.
  • Great power will be able to be generated with this bat.

Matthew Hayden

Former Australian aggressive and dominating opening batsman.

 

Matthew Hayden played most of his career with Gray-Nicolls. He started to be part of the development with the Mongoose Bat when he was playing only T20 tournaments and IPL cricket.

Hayden decided to use this bat as he felt that this bat could change the whole concept of attacking batting. Hayden used this bat against the Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) and according to him that helped him better his game.

The Mongoose aided Hayden to prove his stance about using a bat in that very first game.  He successfully smacked 93 runs off 43 balls and that innings was truly a remarkable highlight of his career. To bat with this specially formed kind of bat requires practice and expertise.

The Mongoose bat has three times more wood at the bottom than the conventional bat; allowing the batsman to hit the Yorkers and also the low tosses with full force and power. With the reduction of the blade length by 33% . The Mongoose Bat is lighter than the regular bat. The unique structure of the Mongoose bat enhances the sweet spot by a massive 120%.
