The MCC has turned down the idea of bats made with bamboo instead of willow, saying that

it would be "illegal" under current laws, which says bats must be made only of wood and also bans lamination of the blade

in bats meant for senior cricketers.

But the guardians of the laws of the game did welcome the experiment, saying that

"this angle of willow alternatives should also be considered".

Law 5.3.2 states that the blade of the bat must consist solely of wood

so it would require a change in the law for bamboo - which is a grass - to be considered.

the bamboo bat "was stiffer, harder and stronger than those made of willow, although more brittle".

"It is heavier than a willow bat, and we are looking to optimise that"
