Is it the one near the bottom of the picture?

Did you use it or not? From toe it looks a bit used..

Maybe you could sand it down and then apply some fibre-glass tape?

@Cover Drive: Yes thats the crack I used it in 2 matches and few net sessions.

@Quick Single: I had the same idea but I am scared if it goes deep in :D

Hmmm....

It cracked after 2 matches and a couple of nets? :13:

Did you oil it enough?

If its on the toe get fiberglass tape or wrap it with hockey tape. If not then just sand it down to get rid of it.

Bhai did you get any yorker? I think this happened because bat was probably unknocked and balls were new/hard etc so that might have caused the damage.

It doesn't look a bit one so probably sand it a bit and see if it disappears or not, if it doesn't then you might want to put fibreglass tape on the toe.

Ahh then I am 100% sure that the delivery was the one which damaged your bats toe. To be honest it is not a big or worrying damage.

Are you still in Karachi ?

You can use hockey tape.............will be easier to find............well..........depends where u live..............but the best thing to use is fiberglass tape.
