MRF Bat has a special place in the hearts of the cricket fans. This bat became popular because of Sachin Tendulkar, who scored thousands of runs with that bat. Initially many fans, including a young MS Dhoni, believed that MRF is a company that manufactures bats. However, later they came to know that MRF has a different business and they sponsor Sachin for keeping the sticker on his bat.
Although Sachin Tendulkar got a different bat sponsor in the final phase of his career, MRF has remained in the hearts of the fans. It is a common thing to see young kids playing cricket with a bat having that sticker. In this article now, we will look at the top five popular cricketers who played this bat in their careers.
