#5 Sachin Tendulkar

Bat Used: MRF / Adidas Master Blaster

Weight: 1.47 kg (3.25 pounds)

Tendulkar and the MRF bat were partners in crime

Scoring thousands of runs, a hundred hundreds, humiliating legendary bowlers all across the world, Sachin’s bat wreaked havoc. 

His bats had a thick profile with massive edges and were also heavily arced. The Little Master was without a bat contract until the beginning of the 1996 Cricket World Cup. At the end of the tournament, famous tyre manufacturers MRF sponsored his willow.

His sheer dominance with the heavy piece of willow psyched the bowlers so much that they even registered complaints regarding the size of his bats.  

In October 2010, his bat was sold for a massive 42 lakh rupees at a famous sports auction. Sachin’s bat was his partner in crime.
