Evolutionary dead end - Dennis Lillee's controversial aluminium bat from the Perth Ashes test of 1979.
Legendary bat maker is selling up his historic collection of willow wonders.
A collection of cricket bats that were used by some of finest players of all-time have been put up for sale by the man who crafted them with his own hands.
Duncan Fearnley, 79, is best known for producing bats for legendary England all-rounder Ian Botham throughout his illustrious career.
He also created hand-made blades for the likes of Viv Richards, Clive Lloyd and Indian hero Sunil Gavaskar, all featuring his famous 'three stump' logo.
At the end of a season the bats were often donated back to him by generous players and he has now decided to part with a number of them.
