“Masuri extensively studied all information available in order to develop this solution.
What you see?
Had the ball struck the batsman on back of the head or right on the vulnerable area of the neck just above the left collarbone?
Is it anyway giving an impression that the latest 'StemGuard' helmets were designed to provide with extra protections?
Good efforts notwithstanding on part of Masuri, the 'StemGuard' doesn't look innovative, adequate, and reliable enough when it is the question of a cricketer's protection and safety.
In addition, if Masuri is to quote: "Nine current England players choose to wear Masuri Vision Series helmets – none are paid to do so."
There is nothing against Masuri or against any other helmet manufacturer, but the point is, "On what basis, ICC and all national cricket boards allow cricketers to select their helmets? If there is any global standard for that, does the standard itself have any standard?"
Finally, we must not take cricketers' protection and safety lightly because it's only cricketers who play the sport and save cricket, worldwide, unlike administrators, corporate sponsors, or TV channels do.
