While visiting Kashmir any tourist would be excited to visit the world famous Kashmir Willow Indian Cricket Bats. We were also surprised to see the mass manufacturing of Cricket bats at these local Kashmiri factories. This is one of the major occupations of Kashmiris. Since the tourism has taken a hit due to terrorism at Kashmir, very few local vendors are able to export their manufactured units. Even though I am not a big fan of Cricket, I some how managed taking interest to know the minutes of how a cricket bat is created, and believe me the process undertaken to create the world class hand made cricket bats was simply exciting.
