The duo highlighted the heavier nature of Kashmir Willow compared to English Willow but emphasized their successful management of it.

They asserted their position as the leading manufacturer of Kashmir Willow Bats, utilizing Premium Grade 1 Kashmir Willow to ensure superior quality and lighter bats.

Since their establishment in 2021, the duo claimed to have sold over 20,000 bats, securing a deal for 1,000 bats even in Qatar.

Equity Stake

Currently pursuing their BBA degrees, the duo sought Rs 30 lakhs for a three percent equity stake in their venture. Saad and Hamaad underlined their unique selling proposition: being the sole market players offering Kashmir willow bats at faster and more affordable rates.


Intrigued by their pitch, negotiations ensued with the Sharks. Various offers were made, including Vineeta and Anupam proposing Rs 30 lakhs at 10%, and Ritesh offering the same amount at four percent.

Deal Struck with Shark Aman and Peyush  

Aman, in a playful manner, critiqued the high equity stakes, ultimately offering Rs 30 lakhs at six percent. After deliberation, Saad and Hamaad struck a joint deal with Aman and Peyush at Rs 30 lakhs for a four percent equity share.

This successful deal marked a milestone for the Kashmiri entrepreneurs on Shark Tank India 3, broadcasted on Sony LIV. Notably, Saad and Hamaad are grandsons of Nazir Ahmad Tramboo, a prominent figure in Kashmir’s poultry industry.


Tramboo Sports Sparked Controversy

However, the episode aired on January 30th has stirred legal controversy for Shark Tank India Season 3. A pitch about a cricket bat manufacturing startup has sparked backlash from Kashmir’s bat manufacturing industry, demanding an apology and Rs 100 crore in damages.

The bat makers accuse Sony Entertainment Televisions of broadcasting inaccurate data, tarnishing the reputation of Kashmiri bat makers. Specifically, they point to the claims made by Saad and Hamaad Tramboo on the show, alleging misinformation about Kashmir willow bats.

The Cricket Bat Manufacturers Association of Kashmir (CBMAK) asserts that the misrepresentations harm the entire bat-making business, demanding a correction and apology on the same platform. Legal action has been initiated against Sony and the Tramboo brothers.


Sony Ent. T.V Ltd and Shark Tank India face a legal notice from Alfa Sports & Co, a Kashmir-based cricket manufacturer, seeking INR 500 crore in damages and the notice involves participants Saad and Hamad Tramboo of Tramboo Sports Pvt Ltd for claims made about their bat manufacturing capabilities that aired on January 30, 2024.

It’s worth noting that Shark Tank India Season 3 features new sharks: Ritesh Agarwal, Deepinder Goyal, Azhar Iqubal, Radhika Gupta, Ronnie Screwvala, and Varun Dua.
