What is a Kashmir Willow Cricket Bat?
Kashmir willow is mainly grown in the Kashmir region of Pakistan and India. As a result of its location and lesser properties its main use is for junior or adults bats at the lower end of the price scale.
Kashmir willow bat is a close cousin of English willow. This willow tends to be darker and drier and as a consequence is rarely durable. Grading system for Kashmir willow is not as rigorous as in English willow.
Made from Finest Willow from Kashmir.
Designed for longer durability.

Vital Tips for Bat Care:
Oiling - All natural faced cricket bats must be treated using raw linseed or a special cricket bat oil. The main purpose of oiling is to maintain moisture levels within the blade, and hence reduce the chances of cracking and splitting. Light coats should be applied to the face, edge, toe and back of the blade. Each oil coat must be allowed to dry before a second coat is applied.
Knocking in - All bats are pressed, however 'knocking in' is crucial and vital. This is the process by which the fibres of the willow in the face and edges are compressed together to form a barrier, which protects the bat against the impact of the ball. Effective 'knocking in' will significantly improve the performance and increase the life span of the bat. The bat should be gradually struck with while increasing the strength of the knock. Appropriate attention should be paid to the edges and the angles of a bat; they should not be affected by the hits as that may decrease the quality of a shot.
The next step is to hit short shots with an old but quality cricket ball; this will let anyone know that whether a bat requires further conditioning or is set for matches.
The ideal place for a bat in winter is in a garage or shed with a sealed floor - this will provide sufficient but not excessive moisture. If the floor is not sealed, support the bat above the floor. Try to store your bat in a bat cover.
Temperatures in a car, will reach a level that will dry the bat as if it had been left next to a fire or radiator. Wherever possible, remove your bat from the car as soon as possible and store as per 'winter care' above. Every 20 days during the season apply a light coat of oil to preserve the juice in the willow and to keep the fibres of the willow elastic. This will not only prolong the life of the bat but will enhance the ping.
