Is this advisable to do on the edge of a brand new bat?

Evening Gents. Check out the first 30 seconds of this video. Is bouncing a hard cricket ball like that on the edge of a brand new bat ok?

No. Not ok. There is no benefit to it, and while you probably wont create catastrophic damage doing it, why take the risk.

Who wants ball dents on the edge of their lovely new bats.

If you really want to do this (why?) it's probably best you use a tennis ball

I almost killed a team mate's kid for doing this with my match bat.

Could a hard ball bouncing particularly close to the edge surface (unpressed and perpendicular to the Face) cause dents which could cause the onset of delamination? is that possible?

A testament to the trend for thick edges?
Got us looking at it though.

Hardly a test of cricket skills.
