Origin of Bat Making in Kashmir
Bat making in Kashmir started in the colonial era when the British had taken over most of Hindustan. Upon seeing a similarity in the weather conditions of Kashmir and England, some of the saplings of English Willow trees were transported via the sea route. Soon the saplings turned into trees and the texture of the wood obtained from those grown in Kashmir was almost identical to its British counterpart. Although Kashmir Willow was a bit heavier due to the higher temperatures of the valley, it was a lot more durable than the lighter English Willow. So, with this, 100s of artisans learned the craft of bat making, and an entire industry was initiated.
Kashmir Willow Vs English Willow
We have read and heard countless analyses of the Profesional Cricket Bats from Kashmir Willow and English Willow and different experts have different takes on it. Kashmir Willow Bats are a bit heavier than those made of English Willow, but at the same time are extremely durable. They are your best bet to play with inside nets for a professional cricketer. For a hobbyist cricketer, Kashmir Willow is great because it will last for many seasons and he can spend his spare money on other things.
Also, if data is to be believed, there is no evidence that English Willow bats are any better than Kashmir Willow bats. The lesser density of English Willow bats makes them softer and thus more prone to getting broken, especially if they are not knocked in properly.
