When it comes to hitting sixes, very few come close to Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s striking ability. Not being the most technically efficient player, MS Dhoni’s batting is all about power and brute force. The bat he uses is a ridiculously huge piece of wood. Ever wondered how much his bat costs?
MS Dhoni uses Spartan Warrior Cricket bat. If you go and surf on the internet, you will find the bat for around 6000 bucks on a trusted website. West Indian batsman Chris Gayle uses the same brand with a nine-piece cane handle for better grip.
All these add up to the cost and limited edition bats of these typically cost around 25000 to 30000. The limited edition bat is nothing but a normal Chris Gayle’s bat with a green coloured sticker. The sticker doubles its cost from 10000 to 20000.
Chris Gayle and MS Dhoni have been two of the most powerful strikers of the cricket ball of their generation.
Chris Gayle holds the record for most sixes in all T20s (746) while MSD is on 226. Gayle is the first cricketer to hit a six on the first ball of a test match (against Bangladesh in 2012). MSD
