The conventional way of knocking in a new cricket bat is with a mallet but it can take up to 5 hours.
Are there any innovative original alternative easier, less tiring and time consuming options ?

It’s been a long time since I’ve played cricket and even longer since I bought a new bat.
But the last bat I bought they had a rolling machine to do it for you. Took less than 15mins.
Alternatively, I used to hang an old ball in a sock, hang it from a tree and then hit it. Much slower process but as a kid it was good fun.
I found no way of making this process quicker. You can ship your any and pay for someone to do it for you though. It costs around £20 ($25.47).
