Largest bat bids for Guinness Record
As the Cricket World Cup is round the corner, a bat as tall as 10-storey building, unveiled here to promote and celebrate the quadrennial event, is bidding for the Guinness World Record for the ‘Largest Cricket Bat’. The 32-metre long and four-metre wide cricket bat, created by a leading pay TVnetwork was displayed on Monday at the ICC Academy. As tall as an eight to 10-storey building, the bat weighs a mammoth 950 kilogrammes and is nearly 32 times longer than a standard cricket bat. Placed horizontally, the bat’s length is equivalent to the distance of seven cars parked bumper to bumper.
