L&W C-Ten (view the new C-Ten handle)
- The C-Ten is brand new technology and is proving to be incredibly popular.
- The feedback we have received has been amazing and we know that this handle is the future!
- Due to the honeycomb structure at the top of the handle it is reasonably rigid so performance is increased (similar to the CarboCane offering) but it is not so stiff that it feels strange in the hands.
- The other main benefit is that the clear resin used to infuse and secure the honeycomb is heavier than the cane it replaces. This brings the balance point of the bat further up the blade towards the hands and therefore makes it feel lighter.
- These factors improve balance and performance which are the two main factors looked for in an elite cricket bat.
- The L&W C-Ten handles can be made in Oval, Round, Thick, Thin, Long, Short, Super Short and Harrow sizes.

Morning: We beat the Eagles by 25 runs
Geoff Barnett (67) and Chandan Naik (40) were the standout batsmen and Chandan also took 4 wickets. Hemant Thaman also bowled very well and took 3 wickets with his aggressive leg spin We experienced two very different injuries, a head injury to wicket keeper Rog Patterson when standing up to the stumps and a hip injury to Joe Harris from hitting the ball too far!
Afternoon: We lost to MidWest by 5 wickets
Sunil Bulusu (40) James Mackie (35) played two very enterprising innings but unfortunately we dropped a few too many catches and went down to a good all-round team The MidWest team had a good mixture of aggressive batsman (including a star USA U19 opener), fast seam bowlers and accurate spinners. They were very unlucky to miss out on a semi-final place themselves
Morning: We lost to the US Tigers by 6 wickets
James Mackie (40) was the star batsman and his sweeps and reverse sweeps were a joy to behold! Once again our bowlers worked tirelessly but the experience of the US Tiger players shone through in the end. The US Tigers eventually lost the final of the entire tournament to an ICMC team filled with first-class, IPL and international players. We fought gallantly against an exceptional team made up of some of the best players from around the United States
Having won one game and lost two we unfortunately missed out on qualification for the latter stages. We did however enjoy watching the final where the ICMC team were a bit too strong for the US Tigers. The closing ceremony was also very well organised and the trophies were incredible. We, as a team thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and were very grateful to the hard work of the organisers
