If you don't intend to actually win a Test series, why not just make a model of one ? Steve

But if a model isn't what you want (great idea steve), her's one from Dick's sporting goods for ~$27

erm, on second thought, that's mini bat...the regulars cost upwards of $200. Maybe you could use that pic as something to build a model from.

That last is probably the best answer. If this is a prop, it doesn't have to be particularly functional; you could probably make something "good enough" out of plywood, or even cardboard covered with wood-pattern shelf paper.

agreed. (although I'm starting to like the idea of a plastic bat, like the Kiteman suggested...just squish the bat flat to form the cricket end.) A bit safer too

Bargains can crop up on ebay (just watch the postage, bats are heavy). Have you considered buying a cheap plastic toy bat and painting it to look like real one?
