Subject: RE: BS: Australian Cricketer Dies From Injuries
Al, Boycott isn't suggesting taking helmets away - he's absolutely in favour of them. He's suggesting that batsmen need to be coached to face and watch the ball through its whole flight, even when wearing a helmet, rather than turn their back on the ball, which is the practice that's grown up since the introduction of helmets.

The value of helmets is in no doubt by anyone, only an idiot would demand they be abandoned.
