Subject: RE: BS: Australian Cricketer Dies From Injuries
I concur re: helmets are here to stay, and I should have made it clear in the OP. But I have to agree with Boyks, that the best way to avoid being hit is to know where the ball is. I guess I'm saying that improved headgear plus training to face the ball might be the way to go.

You're right about the modern game v. The 'old days', but that's pretty much the same throughout sport - the unfortunate effect of money, I believe.
