    The Batsman hit the ball at the stumps and the ball the hit the umpire at the bowlers end . It was in Israel .

    Not much research has been done in the design of helmets. Instead of helmets taking the impact most times you find batman who get caught square with a bouncer end up with a serious cut needing stitches. They sjould take cues from formula 1 where the car breaks up on impact and not the driver. Also the helmets do leave certain parts of the head exposed. In Hughes case it was fatal which is sad.

    Not a bad shout that Billabong, because it's so rare I'm not sure anything will be done,( is this only the second time?)which when you think of how the great West Indies used to bowl is remarkable, although they were quick enough to change the helmets when Broad got his nose broken because a ball went between his helmet cage and the peak , will just have to wait and see.

    Cricket - Philip Hughes ...

    Both my lads play and the elder of the two moves up to play with a hard ball next summer. Whilst I know there is very limited danger at this age it has certainly made me think about any future dangers they may have in the game.

    I do find some happiness in knowing that Phillip was doing what he loved and knowing that all the hard work, dedication, and passion for the sport got him to play at the top level.

    Feel for the bowler as well.

    I knew a boxer whose opponent died in the ring ,he fought 2 fights afterwards but didn't have it in him to continue his career .
    i think there are a few of them.
