The classic cricket bat that was formerly held by legendary cricketer MS Dhoni and is now the most expensive cricket bat in the world was sold at an incredible price during an auction. During his time as the captain of the Indian cricket team, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Team India won two World Cups. He used the world’s most expensive cricket bat to play in their first triumph, which came against Sri Lanka during the 2011 World Cup.
The majority of cricket bats used by players during international tournaments cost between Rs. 4,000 and Rs. 10,000, however, MS Dhoni’s World Cup 2011 bat was deemed remarkable and went for a huge sum at an auction, becoming the most expensive bat in the world.
Prior to this, the most expensive cricket bat was the Grey Nicolls Legend, which cost close to Rs 1 lakh and was manufactured from a unique English willow. In the 2011 World Cup final match versus Sri Lanka, MS Dhoni used the most expensive cricket bat in the world.
World’s most expensive cricket bat:
The most expensive cricket bat ever sold, MS Dhoni’s world cup-winning bat was included in the Guinness Book of World Records. The bat was identical to those Dhoni had previously used, yet it was auctioned off for Rs 83 lakh.
According to a report by MensXP, MS Dhoni’s cricket bat from the 2011 World Cup was offered for auction as part of the ‘East Meets West’ charity event and sold to RK Global Share and Securities LTD for more than 100,000 pounds (Rs 83 lakh).
Throughout his well-acclaimed cricket career, MS Dhoni has broken numerous records, but it is important to remember that he initially had difficulty finding even one bat sponsor. Reebok has agreed to sponsor the bat that cost the most money in the world. Since his retirement from international cricket, MS Dhoni has exclusively represented the Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
