Cricket Australia strongly recommends that community associations take all practical steps to adopt the ICC directive and mandate that all junior and senior players wear British Standard 7928:2013 compliant helmets from 2019/20 season onwards when batting, wicket-keeping up to the stumps and fielding in close to the batter.
Cricket Australia, alongside all State and Territory Cricket Associations have created a suite of resources to assist you with implementing mandatory British Standard Helmets for the 2019/20 season. On the toolbar you’ll find tabs which are all useful to implement a smooth transition to mandatory British Standard Helmets.
The Resources tab contains a suite of useful documents you can use to assist you in firstly understanding our recommendations but also provides you with sample playing conditions, British Standard Helmet information as well as our FAQ’s.
The Media tab provides you with some great insights into British Standard helmet use with educational videos from Alex Kountouris (Sports Science & Sports Medicine Manager – Cricket Australia), Adam Voges (Western Warriors & Perth Scorchers Coach), Alyssa Healy (Australian Women’s Team Vice-Captain), Elyse Perry (Australian Women’s Team Player) and David D’Elia (President – Cricket Shepparton).
The Catalogue provides you with a comprehensive list of British Standard Helmets so that you have a clear idea about whether your current helmet is compliant, or you can find a helmet which does meet the standard.
