Tendulkar in a recent interview revealed the reason behind using a heavy bat. “I played with a heavy bat because my elder brother and I shared one bat and it was his bat. I had to hold the handle right at the bottom so the weight was not out of control to manage.
Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting wants a limitation in bat sizes for Test cricket. Regarding that Tendulkar said, “The size of the bats that I played with and those I see today are different. It is all about developing equipment and the bats have certainly developed a lot.”
