Are there any restrictions for the height and width of the blade and handle of a cricket bat. I noticed that some players are using bats with short blades(Mongoose).
According to Law 6 of the Laws of Cricket, the length of the bat may be no more than 38 in (965 mm) and the width no more than 4.25 in (108 mm). If you wish to cover the blade with tape etc., the covering permitted for standard bats have to be of thickness not exceeding 0.012 in (0.3 mm) before treatment.
When it comes to the handle, it should not exceed 52% of the overall length of the bat.
