Russell's black bat given green light

Cricket Australia had banned the black and pink bat used by Andre Russell during the first BBL game versus Sydney Sixers.Russell's black bat given green light | Cricket News

But now his black bat has been re-approved by Cricket Australia after the Sydney Thunder all-rounder made sufficient modifications.

The addition of a plastic cover on the front of the bat has appeased CA, and Russell is free to wheel out the black stick again.

Anthony Everard, head of the BBL said,


We’re now satisfied that the bat will not compromise the integrity of the game by discolouring the match ball and we have granted approval for Andre to use the bat in any future BBL matches.
