How dangerous is cricket?
Actually, cricket has rather the reputation of being a tranquil sport. But now the sport has shown its deadly side, and experts are debating whether safety precautions are sufficient.
Mike Gatting, the former captain of the England national team, said for https://cricket360.bet/:
"People are now considering what could have been done? And could anything have been done at all? I don't know. I'm sure some will look at it and say how this could have been prevented. But as the doctor said, it was a totally extraordinary thing that almost never happens. Many say we don't deal with the problem, that's wrong. Because when a ball is coming at you at a good 140 mph, you need the best equipment and you need to make sure the players are protected."
A batter's protective gear includes gloves and a helmet, in addition to leg guards, reported https://cricket360.bet/cricket-betting-sites/. However, the latter does not cover the skull area behind the ear where Phillip Hughes has now been fatally hit.
