MRF Wizard Power Edition MRF bats – Full PROFILE SHAPE: The full player’s style cricket bat is the most common of bats in cricket bat production. This kind of profile is both the most powerful and most forgiving. Such a design is what you will usually see at the international level. A full profile usually means one of two things. Either the bat is constructed from high quality lightweight willow or has an above average weigh with minimum concaving and scalloping at the back of the bat.

MRF Wizard Power Edition MRF bats- A Standard BOW: The regular bow found in the majority of modern cricket bats which allows you to get your hands slightly ahead of the ball for ease of stroke play. It also helps the cricket bat feel more aggressive in your hands.

MRF Wizard Power Edition MRF bats- A Medium SPINE HEIGHT: Often combined with big edges to create a forgiving bat with an extra wide hitting zone which still rewards striking the blade out of the very middle.

MRF Wizard Power Edition MRF bats- A Semi-Flat FACE: One of the latest trends in cricket bat faces was born from the need to add some durability to the edges of flat faced bats. When prepared correctly semi-flat faces bring the benefits of slightly bigger edges, a wider sweet spot. A slight curve also allows batsman to be confident when using the wrists to manipulate the face angle.

MRF Wizard Power Edition MRF bats- A Mid SWEET SPOT POSITION: Not too high or too low, the mid sweet spot position is the most popular setup among all cricket bats. This setup gives performance both straight and square of the wicket, while allowing players to be confident with an array of shots. This prime sweet spot position is also famous for what many refer to as a ‘balanced’ pickup.

MRF Wizard Power Edition MRF bats- Semi- Oval HANDLE TYPE: A happy medium that brings the benefits of both oval & round handles. This shape aids alignment slightly strengthens the Top hand for more controlled stroke play and still allows for creative use of the bottom hand.

MRF Wizard Power Edition MRF bats- A semi-square TOE:  This bat is not fitted with a toe guard. I would suggest to add a toe guard to this bat as it would protect the bat against excessive moisture. The main reason for a Semi square toe is it help minimize damage from tapping at the crease and running between the wickets with your bat, as the toe is slightly offset.

The greatest advantage of this bat is that a talented youngster can start off with this bat in hand then go on to playing at higher levels with the same bat in different sizes while still getting the same performance.

MRF Genius Game Changer cricket bats have a complete profile with large and bulky edges. The bats are made with the finest Grade 1+ English willow. The face of the bat is immaculate and spotless, showing the absolute quality of the willow used to make them. The bats have 11 to 14 straight and equidistant grains in them. The bat’s edges are 40mm thick, with a spine height varying from 65mm to 67mm, showing the presence of a vast amount of concentrated willow in them. This allows the batsman to play powerful shots easily and consistently. The bats have thick shoulders and a wide toe, providing optimum balance while playing. However, there isn’t any toe guard present in MRF Game Changers.

The bats weigh around 2.8 to 2.10 lbs but feel much lighter in the pickup. The bats are semi-oval handles with an off-counter balancing knob at the handle’s top. The balancing knob in the bat’s handles contributes to even weight distribution throughout the entire bat, making it easier to swing the bat at an incredible pace. The best thing about MRF bats is their consistency. Amar reviewed 7 of these bats, and their profile and weight are almost identical.

MRF Game Changers 2022 has a mid-to-low sweet spot backed with a massive amount of concentrated willow. You can play powerful lofted shots and drives with a flawless bat motion and cover huge boundaries effortlessly. Amar checked the ping on the bats with a brand-new red ball. The ping is exceptionally consistent throughout the entire bat.

 MRF Genius Game Changer MRF bats – A slightly scalloped PROFILE SHAPE: A small amount of scalloping is seen in this cricket bat. The goal is to save weight while still making the sweet spot as wide and large as possible. A lot of high quality bats can contain a small amount of scalloping in order to reduce their weight.

 MRF Genius Game Changer MRF bats – A Standard BOW: The regular bow found in the majority of modern cricket bats which gets your hands slightly ahead of the ball for ease of stroke play. It also helps the cricket bat feel more aggressive.

MRF Genius Chase Master MRF bats – A Slight BOW: This is a combination of the traditional and large bow which is the most common when making a cricket bat.

The handle then being covered with a textured grip for optimal control of the bat in your hands.

MRF Genius Grand Edition MRF bats -Little to no wood was taken out. Full PROFILE SHAPE:

MRF Genius Grand Edition MRF bats – Standard BOW: The regular bow found in the majority of modern cricket bats which gets your hands slightly ahead of the ball for ease of stroke play. It also helps the cricket bat feel more aggressive in your hands.

MRF Genius Grand Edition MRF bats – Extended 64mm SPINE HEIGHT: Cricket Bat Spine is found on the back face of the cricket bat. The spine is the line that runs down the center of the cricket bat’s back starting from the handle and running down to the toe. Higher spine or a thicker swell depth represents more willow mass behind the sweet spot.

MRF Genius Grand Edition MRF bats – A flat FACE: Round is the traditional shape that until 15 years ago was all there was. You get more deflection for off-centred shots, which a touch player can exploit for late shots backward of the square. Round faces put less stress on the shoulders and handle because that energy is deflected rather than twisting the blade. All that puts stress around the splice joint, so the flatter the face the more twist is generated the harder you hit and closer to the edge. It is the same reason a flatter face is more forgiving, and more energy remains in the shot for off-centre shots making the middle feel wider. The big edge was a by-product of the flatter face. The new MCC law allows for a maximum of 5 mm camber. This is probably a good compromise.

MRF Genius Grand Edition MRF bats -A Mid SWEET SPOT POSITION:

MRF Genius Grand Edition MRF bats -Semi-Oval HANDLE TYPE: A happy medium that brings the benefits of both oval & round handles. This shape aids alignment and slightly weakens the bottom hand for more controlled stroke play and still allows for creative use of the bottom hand.

This MRF cricket bat was made with Premium reserve Player’s grade English Willow. the MRF bat has big edges of 38- 40 mm which indicates the amount of willow backing up each shot. The bat has a standard bow to increase the ease of stroke play while still getting the most out of every shot.

MRF Genius Elite MRF bats- Full PROFILE SHAPE: The full player’s style cricket bat is the most common of bats in cricket bat production. This kind of profile is both the most powerful and most forgiving. Such a design is what you will usually see at the international level. A full profile usually means one of two things. Either the bat is constructed from high quality lightweight willow or has an above average weigh with minimum concaving and scalloping at the back of the bat.

The goal is to save weight while still making the sweet spot as wide as possible. Even very high-quality bats can contain a small amount of scalloping in order to reduce their weight.

MRF Genius Elite Junior MRF bats- Standard BOW: The regular bow found in the majority of modern cricket bats which gets your hands slightly ahead of the ball for ease of stroke play. It also helps the cricket bat feel more aggressive.

MRF Genius Elite Junior MRF bats- Medium SPINE HEIGHT: Often combined with big edges to create a forgiving bat with an extra wide hitting zone which still rewards striking the blade out of the very middle.

MRF Genius Elite Junior MRF bats- Semi-Flat FACE: One of the latest trends in cricket bat faces was born from the need to add some durability to the edges of flat faced bats. When prepared correctly semi-flat faces bring the benefits of slightly bigger edges, a wider sweet spot plus ‘point and shoot’ aiming of a flat face bat. A slight curve also allows batsman to be confident when using the wrists to manipulate the face angle.

MRF Genius Elite Junior MRF bats- Mid SWEET SPOT POSITION: Not too high or too low, the mid-sweet spot position is the most popular setup among all cricket bats. This setup gives performance both straight and square of the wicket, while allowing players to be confident with an array of shots. This prime sweet spot position is also famous for what many refer to as a ‘balanced’ pickup.

MRF Genius Elite Junior MRF bats-Semi-Oval HANDLE TYPE: A happy medium that brings the benefits of both oval & round handles. This shape aids alignment, slightly weakens the bottom hand for more controlled stroke play and still allows for creative use of the bottom hand.

Natural TOE: This bat needs some form of toe preparation via shoe goo, a toe guard or your favourite secret recipe.

Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar signed a contract with MRF after the 1996 World Cup. He has become a cricket “God” in India at a young age. As a great stroke player and a big hitter, the crowds came to see this mastery at work.
The whole Indian community was batting with him in each game he played.

With a cricket career that lasted for more than 20 years, Sachin has been associated with many brands and products.
Among all Sachin’s endorsed brands one that stands out is MRF Tyres.
Sachin used MRF logo on his bats for more than 10 years.

Sachin’s impact was such that MRF brand that it became one with cricket bats.
Though the company doesn’t manufacture bats! It is a tyre manufacturer.
Many believe that MRF also manufacture cricket equipment but that’s not true.

Other than Sachin, MRF bats was used to great affect by Brain Lara from the West Indies and former Aussie Captain Steve Waugh. After  company’s sponsorship ended with Sachin in 2009 MRF started new sponsorship deals
with Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan.
Overall, there’s hardly any doubt that MRF got the most out of the “Brand Sachin Tendulkar”. Their market value and sales surged all those years and made them a household name in India. It was the perfect partnership.

AB de Villiers

Although the MRF and AB de Villiers partnership was much shorter than the other top players it did not go unnoticed. The quality of the former Protea’s captain makes it impossible for him not to feature in the top five players who have used the MRF bat. The partnership between the two parties was for 3 seasons, but even then, it was of great importance for MRF to have one of the best batsmen of all time on board and part of the MRF Cricket family.

A Freak of nature with the batting skills that he possesses. AB broke many records. He formed an incredible partnership with Virat Kohli in the IPL for the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

He did it for the last 3 seasons with an MRF Cricket bat in his hands.

Conclusion

In my opinion the MRF range is a quality range of bats and equipment. The minimal concave edges and clear wide blade ensure hard hitting and rewards the attacking style of batting. The rounded handles assist with the cross blade shots and are a huge benefit in T20 matches as it allows for the use of the wrists when playing shots all around the ground. Bat range are expensive if you compare it to other ranges, but it reward you with quality results of the blade.
