The ICC Twenty20 Men’s Cricket World Cup in Dubai featured the first official appearance of cricket bats made from legendary Kashmir willow. The team from Oman used bats made by GR8 Sports, which is located in the Sangam area of Anantnag. They were used in a match played between Oman and Bangladesh on October 19.
Omani players Naseem Khushi and Bilal Khan, who are wearing GR8 Sports kits in their World Cup matches, were photographed displaying these bats during World Cup final preparations.
