    Thought it would be helpful and essential to list out the bats available for DBC17. For the ease, we can divide the bats into two major categories, the bats the players use; team-wise and the bats that are commercially available in the market under the batmakers' labels.

    As the other threads follow, will be adopting the similar procedure to mark the available ones by bolding them. As of now, I don't know which are already available; I request the PC community's help for the same.

    The following list shall grow with time. I am considering only the current season's bats for now.

    Bat Manufacturers
    Flags indicate markets.

    Think it is definitely England. Bats need some work though. Irritates me that they use different makes to the rest of the world.

    Out of interest, who do we use that others don't? From the ones you've listed above the first missing one that comes to mind is slazenger but I want aware that was an England only brand.

    Not manufacturers as such but actual bat models. Kookaburra Gray Nicolls and GM are all different.

    And, few manufacturers' strategies to deploy different models/label for different regions is an irritating factor. This causes chaos in listing them. Also, no clear information regarding the year of manufacture (or season) of some bats are unavailable.

    No current International players (Pakistani) uses it so no point making the bat.

    Add NB bats to the list too.
