- In real life, Bats (in both Baseball and Cricket) are equipment used by batsmen/batters to hit the ball thrown by the pitcher in Baseball or the bowler in Cricket.
- The Cricket Bat is a possible reference to the Shaun of the Dead (2004) film, where one of the main character's weapon is a Cricket bat.
