Quote:The era of mongoose and double blade bats appears to be over as eco-friendly 'Wow' aluminium bats are going to flood the market to further revolutionise cricketing in India.

Brain-child of an Indian IIT engineer, Wow aluminium bats are the latest innovations to hit tennis ball cricket and will be formally unveiled in the capital on May 21, while those to be used by leather ball cricket would be introduced three months later.

"Wow! Aluminium bats are made using aeronautical grade aluminium. Each machine-made bat is balanced so as to produce a perfect piece," said IIT Roorkee alumni Vivek Lakhotia, who is the designer and innovator of the bat.

Placed within the factory price range of Rs 500-800, Wow aluminium bats weighs less than the wooden bat and have a life which is at least five times more than a wooden cricket bat, Lakhotia said.

These eco-friendly bats use recycled aluminium and will help save willow trees of Kashmir currently used in making of cricket bats, he added.

Lakhotia has also applied for four patents of the bat -- cutting edge design, process, actual product and the innovation itself.
