You have no idea how much it delighted me to see someone finally write this correctly and not top draw  :D

Pedant-tastic!!  :D

What grates with me is students who say can I lend (your pen for example ).

Dave,

Thank you so much. I was so excited about your offer I ran it down the post office straight away. It is already on its way.

I really hope something can be done with it. I stripped all the stickers off during an inspection, and used a bit of glue.

Hope it makes the guys job a little easier! :)

Bat will be with you tomorrow GingerBusiness.

Just out of curiosity - all the damage did not occur in the post did it?

Still no refund - however the bat has been received, reoiled and fully knocked in this time.

Massive thanks to Dave and Streaky for all their help.

When I get a moment, I will post some pics. However, with the cracking - net bat only. Shame really.

Hoping Hermes comes through. Been waiting almost 3 weeks now...

Tweet them mate. I did it when they caused issues with a delivery of mine and they replied within about 5 mins.

I can't pal. The seller is dealing with it and is nothing to do with me from my end.

It was the 150 adidas elite from UKsportswarehouse last year and now 130 with this B3.

Starting to think I'm not very good at this bat buying malarkey!

How anyone can send a bat via courier without a proper box is beyond me...  Seller should take half the blame.

He certainly isn't willing to take any blame for the matter, and he has said he won't refund me directly as he will be out of pocket.

Difficult one really.

A bat generally doesn't surface crack even if you swing it as hard as you can against a cricket ball being bowled at 80mph. And you're telling me a courier did this damage to a well packaged cricket bat? Hmm...
