Default Cricket Bat as Mash Paddle?

My homebrew buddy brought me back a cricket paddle from India and I was wondering if I could use it as a mash paddle. It says "made from the finest willow" but he said it was the cheapest he could get. It's got some stickers on it so I figured I could lacquer it so they'd stay there. Any reason not to?

If there is no finish on it, I wouldn't put any on it. Scrape the stickers off, quick sanding, there you go. The fewer 'adjuncts' you add to the mash, the better.

Yep, sand then maybe apply some butcher's block oil.
