Sachin Tendulkar again urges to make helmet necessary for every batsman to the International Cricket Council (ICC). 

The suggestion came from the god of cricket after Vijay Shankar got hit by a bouncer during a match in IPL 2020. He has always seen advocating the safety of players.

Whether Fast or Spin, a helmet must be necessary!

Significantly, during, an IPL match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab, Hyderabad’s all-rounder Vijay Shankar experienced a close shave when a bowl from King’s pacer hit on Shankar’s helmet in a process to take a quick single.

This made the World’s icon of cricket Sachin Tendulkar used Twitter to urge the ICC about the necessity of wearing the helmet. He asked the ICC to make it obligatory for all players at the level of professional cricket against any bowling attack whether it is spin or fast.

He specially mentioned Vijay Shankar’s incident saying that it could have been more-nasty for him. It all happened on the 24th of October in a league match between KXIP and SRH. In the 18th over of Sunrisers Innings, Jason Holder was on the striker’s end. He hit the bowl and asked his partner for a run. The ball went to Nicholas Pooran and he saw an opportunity of a run-out Shankar so, he aimed at the wickets of Striker’s end but the ball ended at hitting Shankar’s helmet rib.

This could have been a devasting hit for Shankar. For once he got shivered and he was forced to the ground by the ball. Players from both sides came to see him especially Nicholas Pooran. Soon, he waked up and decided to continue the match but he got out on the very next ball behind the stumps.

Sachin took Twitter to mention this incident so that ICC can look into it. You can see the tweet here,

Tendulkar wrote that the game of cricket has become faster but he is worried that is it getting safer too? The incident could have been nasty for Shankar. ICC should make it mandatory to wear the helmet whether the batsman is facing pace or spin bowler.  

He also twitted a link to the video of the match between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad where the same incident happened. Ravi Shastri twitted in favor of Tendulkar. Here is the tweet,


Sachin seems right here. The modern cricketers are taking the rules loosely and this can cause life-long harm to them. We have many cricketers in their cricketing career due to injury.
