The first cricket box was used in 1874.  The first cricket helmet was introduced in 1974. So, it took 100 years for men to twig that their brains were also worth protecting.

with the spelling on some of the SS sharpie pro bats, my guess is that was meant to say Bopara...

WG was Gilbert not George.

Maybe George Bailey.

Maybe Prince George.

Seems like a cracked toe a well. Crack extends to front face of the bat or the rear ?? Do post some photos of the front face, profile etc ...

With that kinda crack, the bat is definitely a piece of firewood for him. No wonder he gave it to you.

Possibly but I have seen a pro walk out to bat with a piece of willow in a much worse state than that.
Wouldn't use number 2 as felt number 1 still went better out the middle.

Dropped it round for a repair job mate, i had repaired it in the past, some 12 months ago. Just a re glue and tape job before his Tour

Bat is a cannon

I will take some pics later, stickers have been removed as he is changing his sponsor in the near future
