It is well said that “Caution is the parent of safety!” Just like a biker on the road, builder on the construction site and racer on the track without a helmet, is under the risk of injury. Cricketers are also vulnerable. Though the cricket profession doesn’t seem to be a dangerous one, it might become one for someone who is not careful.

So, it is always better to be safe than sorry! The best precaution for a cricketer is his helmet. Since brain injuries are the most fatal ones, so you need to keep your head fully protected.
