Bamboo and Cane Development Institute (BCDI) of Tripura along with the North East Centre of Technology Application and Reach (NECTAR) claimed to have developed the country’s first-ever bamboo made cricket bat maintaining all the standard protocols used for manufacturing cricket bats. These bats could be used in all forms of cricket. The most preferred wood for the production of cricket bats is willow. The company’s CEO recently gave Biplab Kumar Deb a demonstration of the product.
- For the development of the bats, the hard Boom (local name) bamboo has been utilized. “Kanakaich (a local kind of bamboo)” has also been used to build bamboo wickets, which are almost completely solid.
- To create this product, we made use of our exclusive bamboo blue board technology.
- First, a Cambridge university paper released a lengthy piece on the usage of bamboo as a substitute for traditional bat-making methods four to five months ago.
- According to BCDI-NECTAR chairman Dr Abhinab Kant, the project was later taken over by NECTAR, with the BCDI taking on the remaining work.
