Cricket Bats are a serious purchase in Mumbai. The game is more than just the national sport, after all; it’s an obsession. For the best in town, go to the Dhobi Talao neighborhood near the Metro Adlabs Cinema, a 20-minute drive north of Colaba. Small family-owned shops like Caxton (4 Kapadia Chambers), Alfa (Metro House, Mahatma Gandhi Rd.), and Pioneer (292 Lokmanya Tilak Marg) sell English or Indian willow bats for anywhere from $10 to $400. Pay, then enjoy a cup of tea and friendly cricket chat with the shopkeeper.
