What Is The Cost Of The Cricket Bat Which Virat Kohli And MS Dhoni Are Using?

Generally, people who play cricket has an obsession with bats. They look around for the best bat to hit fours and sixes. In our childhood, we saw the iconic Sachin Tendulkar with the MRF bat, the red grip, the red MRF sticker and the magic that he used to perform with that bat. After that, he changed to the Adidas’ version and with that, the long obsession with bats ended.

Again it started when MS Dhoni came. After coming into the arena of cricket he took the world by storm with his power hitting shots. He particularly won our heart with his signature helicopter shot. With Dhoni the obsession of bats returned among us, he used to take the world by storm with his iconic RBK bat. Later, on the streets, the kids again found someone as their idol.

Even Dhoni changed his brand to Spartan. And now, Kohli came into the scenario after Dhoni. To our excitement, Kohli uses the same MRF bat which was once used by Sachin.
