Looks good. Did you use wood glue or super glue? And did you clamp it?

I used Aldred method.... as crack itself was very thin.... i dont think wood glue would go that deep...

Sure, yes I've watched that video and also do this for small cracks. I do wonder whether the super glue could crack again under impact, but I've not noticed it on my bat repairs, so all good.

Thats a good point... but so far i have done it in several bats, without any issues either....
