Kashmir’s Cricket Bat Industry Provides Livelihood to Thousands

 

Kashmiri willow bat is famous for its quality, stroke, and durability. In Pulwama district of south Kashmir, there are thousands of people who are associated with this art and they produce and manufacture cricket bats and export them to different parts of India and abroad as well.

The cricket bat is made of Kashmiri willow and incidentally, willow can be found only in Kashmir and England. Kashmir willow bats are popular across the world for their quality and durability. Kashmir willow is less valuable than English willow.

However, cost advantage of Kashmiri bats ensures that the region remains the second-largest exporter of cricket bats in the world, right behind the UK, where the sport was born.
