Rolling Stones release new cricket bat


...

Gray-Nicolls have announced an exclusive collaboration with The Rolling Stones to produce a limited-edition range of cricket bats featuring the band’s iconic ‘Jagger Lips’ logo.

The range will be stocked by Pro:Direct Cricket.

The one-off collection features two premier Gray-Nicolls bats, the first being the ‘Legend’ bat made from grade 1 English willow, the premium 1 per cent of available willow.

...

The ‘Players’ bat offers a combination of traditional, clean looks and a big swell.

Only 25 of each bat will be made.

The collection was first unveiled to the band during the No Filter European Tour. It was presented by commentator and Rolling Stones fan David ‘Bumble’ Lloyd at the Manchester leg of the tour.

...

The Rolling Stones are known for their love for cricket. Singer  Mick Jagger and drummer Charlie Watts have been prominent enthusiasts over the years and can still be regularly spotted at games all over the world.

The exclusive Gray-Nicolls and Rolling Stones range is available through ProDirectCricket.com now.

'Batty Men' would be a decent name for a pop-up shop opposite the Trent Bridge Inn in West Bridgford.

Frisbee...MAYBE...but this is just too specialized it seems...very Anglo-centric...bordering on colonialism brashness

Mick likes Cricket. No more market research required.  Perverted Mick

“What rap did that was impressive was to show there are so many tone-deaf people out there,” he says. “All they need is a drum beat and somebody yelling over it and they’re happy. There’s an enormous market for people who can’t tell one note from another.” - Keef

Anglo-centric?

The worlds best known cricketers have a global recognition which is every bit as big (if not more) than any basketball, baseball or gridiron player.

It might only be a sport thats popular in a few Commonwealth countries but when you consider that as well as its popularity in Australia, the West Indies and South Africa its the national sport in countries like India (population 1.2 billion), Pakistan (220 million) and Bangladesh (165 million) thats quite a considerable market.

Pakistan have actually just elected their former international cricket captain as their Prime Minister!

Probably because I dont get the significance. Its a sport thats pretty much just a big deal in the Commonwealth or former Empire.  Not sure where 'brashness' comes into it.  Tongue
