The most expensive cricket bat was Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s, which was sold at auction for £ 100,000. The bat was used by him in the 2011 world cup.

The world’s most expensive cricket bat costs a cool INR 83 lakh, and it’s the one Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni used in the 2011 World Cup final.

The money raised was reportedly used for the development of MS Dhoni’s wife’s charitable organization – Sakshi Foundation.

On a fateful day, exactly ten years ago, Mahendra Singh Dhoni hit probably the most famous six to help India win their second Cricket World Cup in Mumbai. Needing four runs from 11 balls against Sri Lanka, Dhoni lofted a Nuwan Kulasekara delivery.

While Ravi Shastri immortalized the iconic moment from the com box, “Dhoni finishes off in style. A magnificent strike into the crowd! India lifts the World Cup after 28 years,” Dhoni savoured the moment, standing there in the centre for a fleeting moment, with his bat raised. At that moment, he owned the world.
