Redesigned cricket helmet for safer playing (Part 2)

Fixing these findings will not only affect cricket players but also anyone who regularly wears helmets for safety purposes, from construction workers and military personnel to sports.

Other include horse riding, motor racing, motorcycle riding, cycling or whenever a significant increase in body temperature is likely to occur.

Dr Nick Neave said that while the head only accounts for 7-10% of the total body surface, the head temperature is often higher than other body regions.

Using helmets reduces airflow on the head and this leads to speculation that people who frequently wear helmets may be more susceptible to heat-related stress and high-attention tasks. may be more affected by this.

Our research has revealed that while wearing a helmet does not have an adverse physiological effect on users, it has led to a significant decline in attention and a slower response time in a number of things. Test conditions can affect the cognitive skills needed for successful polishing performance, as well as many cricket were suspected.

Helmets recommended for cricket do not require ventilation openings to allow heat to travel from the start, although some teams use them.

Making the right and quick decision is essential for a batsman player and our research can have implications not just for cricket but also for the sports and career that require morale. other, where people must wear head protection.

However, we emphasize that safety improves when helmet wearing goes beyond the small negative effects of wearing a helmet.

The tests, conducted by Dr. Neave and colleagues Dr. Mark Moss and John Emmet, used computerized test batteries to measure temperature, hydration level and fatigue before training and after 30 minutes of intense training.

The publication of Northumbria University’s research may not have led to any significant changes in the design of on-shelf cricket helmets at sporting goods stores, but it inspired Ravinder Sembi to consider what What could have been on one of his final degree projects at Ravensbourne College.

Guides on being a batsman (part 3)

Refining The Batting Skills


You should follow through with the swing. A decent follow-through is significant, especially if you desire to hit your ball far. You need to follow through the whole swing, even when you miss your ball. It will help you form the habit of following through on the swings all the time.


Be sure you remain calm when you bat. Otherwise, you can be thrown off your game and make mistakes. It would be best if you practiced regulating the breathing as well as visualizing the ball’s trajectory as it leaves the hands of the bowler.


Swing your cricket bat in the mirror for perfecting the swing. Before practicing with a ball, you can try to make your swing perfect in front of one mirror, which is known as the shadow cricket as well. Seeing yourself will enable you to understand what necessary adjustments to make to enhance your stance as well as swing.

It would help if you made adjustments to the stance when noticing that you are doing it improperly.


Practice your batting by yourself with one tennis ball. You can throw one ball down on the ground as well as hitting it after it bounces. Doing so will emulate one full pitch or one pitch which lands in front of you. Also, it will help you practice your swinging when you do not have someone else to practice with.


Also, drill with the team as much as you can. The best way of getting better at becoming a batsman is your active practice with the team. Attempt to attend training. You should drill game scenarios as well as hitting as much as you can so that you can be ready when the game time comes.

Do not forget to take the advice of your coach. Good luck!

Hitting Your Ball


Be prepared for tapping your bat over the guard line. Doing so will notify the bowler that you are prepared to hit. Avoid tapping the ground overly hard. Plus, keep the bat as straight as you can so that you can maintain great form.


Next, step forward with the lead foot as well as bringing your bat back. Swing your bat back for it to come up to the back shoulder as well as being pointed directly in the air. Since you wind up, keep your bat as straight as you can. When stepping forward, turn the lead foot so that the toes face the bowler.


Follow with keeping an eye on the ball. Attempt to follow the ball when it bounces toward you. Once you are capable of following the pitch since it has left the hand of the bowler, you will have an idea of where to position your bat for a hit. When the ball reaches you, determine which type of hit you desire to make with your bat.


Then, swing your bat downward for hitting the ball when it bounces. You need to step forward with the lead leg as well as swinging your bat downward so that the lead elbow will point toward that bowler. 


Next, swing your bat to the side when the pitch is short. When the ball bounces early, you advisably step back with the back foot for preparing for one high defensive swing. 


Create contact with the ball when the bowler aims for the wickets. When the ball comes in fast and low, the high chances are that the bowler tries and hits a wicket as well as getting you out. Your primary goal is to contact the ball toward a defensive hit.

The best and worst opening pairs in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 (Part 1)

As the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 gets closer, we continue to build the top league in this sport. Now, these are the best and worst opening pairs possible in the tournament.

10. Afghanistan

Afghanistan may feel optimistic about entering the World Cup, but their opening partnership could come under the scanner. Booming goalkeeper batsman Mohammed Shahzad will be a dependent, but who is with him?

Afghans may need to consider a few options at that location to stabilize their ship, but Hazratullah Zazai seems to be the possible choice. Not much quality is going on there.

9. Bangladesh

Similar to Afghanistan, Bangladesh faces a tough question in the opening department. Veteran warrior Tamim Iqbal is back in the squad, and will definitely open, but who’s next to him?

Liton Das and Soumya Sarkar are definite options but the balance of the team will need to be considered during a call.

8. Sri Lanka

Gone are the days when Sanath Jayasuriya and even Tillakaratne Dilshan could depend on the perfect start to the Sri Lankan matches.

Now, Lankan Lions will have to depend on Dimuth Karunaratne and perhaps Lahiru Thirimanne to give them a good run. Donith sees that happening too often.

7. Pakistan

The opening duo of Fakhar Zaman and Imam Ul-Haq can be lethal in their best condition, but unfortunately the inconsistency is what makes the best Pakistani players.

This may be the combination set in the foreground, but can be changed if Pakistan can get the necessary running steps in some early games.

6. West Indies

Chris Gayle is back in the Windies squad, and we all know how dangerous he can be. But can anyone cooperate with the space boss?

Evin Lewis seems to be the most chosen one at the moment, and while we can expect the duo to fire in a few games, their approach to bowling and spin bowling The quality will be an interesting watch.

5. New Zealand

Not entirely sure what to think about Colin Munro-Martin Guptill being able to pair up ahead, but New Zealand will hope that the two can be at their best when the World Cup begins.

Guptill can be sensational when he walks, as we saw at the last World Cup, and Munro is equally deadly. If they can be consistent, it will create the perfect foundation for Williamson and colleagues.

Guides on being a batsman (part 1)

If you desire to hit your balls in cricket consistently, you should know the proper technique when being up at bat. As soon as you master the batting grip and stance, you can begin refining your hitting technique through deciding on how your ball will bounce as well as what kind of hit you need to use. If you work hard and actively try and enhance your technique, you can better your hitting average as well as becoming a great batsman.

Holding your Bat and Standing Appropriately


Stand sideways towards the bowler (note that your feet have a shoulder-width apart). You will stand sideways in front of wickets with the knees bent, and the head turned to the bowler. Also, bend at the hips but keep the back straight. The non-dominant elbow needs to point in the bowler’s direction since you hold the bat.

Remember, do not let the shoulders drop. Keep them straight when you’re batting. Plus, stay on your feet’s ball while you’re hitting. Also, the shoulders and eyes should be level. Always keep the eyes on the ball.


Hold your bat tight using both hands. The lead or non-dominant hand should be over the bat’s grip’s end. Hold it tightly. The dominant hand need to be below it using a loose two-finger as well as a thumb grip. Both hands need to be close together. Also, the paddle needs to feel comfortable in the hands.


Create a line in the turf that the middle wicket is. Creating a line in the turf in which the middle wicket is may be known as developing a guard and will provide you with some awareness to the place the wickets are positioned when you’re batting. Put your bat’s tip in the turf and create a line. Try it!

The five common dismissal forms in cricket (Part 3)


During the innings of the team, they will accumulate runs, and the fielding team will accumulate wickets (outs). If at some point the team had scored 72 goals and lost 3 wickets, their score would be ‘3/72’, or ‘three for seventy-two’. If that team scored two goals for the next match, their score would drop to 3/74, because they still lost only 3 wickets, but now have scored 74 goals. A player who has faced 40 deliveries and scored 30 runs will have a score of “30 * (40),” with an asterisk indicating they have not been fired.

If 18 punches have been completed and the bowling player threw three balls on the 19th, the number of bowled plays will be represented by: “Overs: 18.3”. (Since there are six balls per turn, the process goes to 18.3, 18.4, 18.5, 19.0 – that is, each number after the decimal point represents a rolling ball, not a tenth of a time).

There are two common mistakes made by the survey team: a no-ball (most often, when the player passes the ball with the front foot in front of the white line at the end of the field, similar to the Tennis leg error); Or wide (when the ball is beaten by the beater or out of its reach).

A ball is not a ball or a large medal running into the team, must be polished again – it does not count on those six balls and means it cannot be fired by batsmen, except to run hide or hit the ball. So, if a player has a castle broken by a transaction called ‘ball without a front foot’, the batter will escape and remain in the game.

Different Forms of Cricket

There are three types of cricket: Check cricket, a cricket day, and T20 cricket.

The oldest and most prestigious is Test cricket. Test matches that last up to five days, play from about 11 am to 6 pm, play bowling 90 minutes a day, with two lunch breaks and tea. (The fruit is clear, cricket was invented in England). In this form of the game, the player wears white clothes and uses a red ball.

Mafia manipulates cricket in India (Part 1)

Mafia has turned cricket ball tournament in India, which has the biggest attraction in the world, into a fake contest to profit “gigantic” through the illegal betting market.

The fertile market of the mafia

Currently, cricket tournaments are on a downward trend, including in England, the country where the sport was born. However, in India, cricket has a strong attraction, even seen as a “religion”.

As described by the BBC, cricket creates a strange national unity in India, because when a match takes place, the roads become empty, the wedding must be postponed, even the activities of hospitals or congressional meetings were also rescheduled. The whole country, from the poor to the rich, the rural or the urban, the Hindus or Muslims, etc. put aside their work to watch the struggles.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) professional cricket tournament is held every year with 11 participating clubs with an audience equal to 10 tournaments in other countries combined. This “crazy” attraction has helped IPL in 2014 gain a brand value of up to US $ 7.2 billion and is the main source of support for the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Meanwhile, since its inception in 2008, IPL has created a betting market with revenue of about US $ 60 billion, but half of that has fallen to illegal betting lines via websites from Karachi. (Pakistan) to Mumbai (India), Hong Kong and Dubai (UAE). However, hidden behind the glitz, the results of the IPL competitions are mostly orchestrated by the notorious mafia gangs in India and Asia.

Semi-explosive scandal 

In May, Indian cricket fans were outraged when the IPL scandals began to come to light after a series of arrests. First, Dehli police proceeded to arrest three stars of the Rajasthan Royals Club, Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan immediately after a match in Mumbai due to the result of the settlement line.

The five common dismissal forms in cricket (Part 2)

3. Run out

To be shaken is similar to being thrown out of baseball. If the batsmen tried to run, and the fielding team could throw the ball into one of the original sets before the batter could pass the ball to the white line (‘wrinkles’) at the end of the field, the batter was outside. The Fielding team can attack the ball with the ball through a direct hit, or the player can catch the ball and then defeat the Bail by hand (s) holding the ball. Or, they can only do this:

Assume that running on any ball is not required, running away usually happens or because a player thinks he / she was fast enough to make it to the other end but was beaten by a stage Great display of fielding, or by miscommunication between two Batsmen. This is one of the most famous blends in cricket history.

4. Stunned

The basic stumping is part of the escape, where the wicket holder breaks the stumps of the batter when attacking after the fisherman accidentally moves out of his wrinkles while swinging and miss the ball. The same rule applies to having to break the stumps when the batsman is out of wrinkles, so if a person beats the flutter and misses but still retains it behind the white line, they cannot be trapped.

5. Foot before Wicket

The cricketing principle of leg before wicket, or LBW, certainly ranks as one of the more complex rules in all sports. Imagine the difficulties in explaining the offside rule of football, surpassing the legal definitions of byzantine on NFL fishing. The essence of this is: if the ball hits the batsman on the leg (or any other part of the body) without hitting his bat or glove, and the ball will have otherwise struck the wickets, the person polish will come out.

The name is a literal description of the layoff mode: the ball touches the foot of the goer before it can go into the wickets; leg before wicket. Today, referees with access to technology not only track the ball did move through the air like tennis, but also predict where the ball would have gone if it did not contact the batter. This technology is used in many advanced gaming forms – although India is particularly skeptical and refuses to accept the use of technology in its matches – and teams will be judged according to regulations for every match.

Indian cricket – there have been too much injuries (part 2)

Now the most appropriate question for you is why is any of these personal injury cases among Indian participants becoming so sudden rambling?

The physiotherapy team and experts have commented that the injured participants often do not have enough time and sleep to restore health. That’s because Indian cricket schedules are burdened with global outfits. India plays cricket around the world more than some other parts of the world.

For example, the last 12 months begin with the final year of community glass cricket towards the end of India’s previous Melbourne trip. The 2007 ODI planet cricket tournament took place from March 14 to April in India and Melbourne’s 28th previous event ended on March 4, 2008, among participants between India never Appreciate relaxation throughout the month with cricket extension.

The world cup ended on the 28th and the 28th Indian team returned from To the west Indies to start a trip to Bangladesh to try 3 days 1 and 2 analytical suits starting October 10.

Right After returning from your visit to Bangladesh, the Indian crew had to hurry to Fantastic Britain to play against Ireland, the South then, Scotland, Africa and Pakistan England. The two-year long journey of full difficulty and 50% ended on September 8. From London, the group had to fly to South Africa to participate in the first twenty20 planet cup tournament from 11 to 24 September.

Returning from the South African Dhoni men has been used around the world a modern day australia a champion to get an additional twenty20 and seven matches The ODI Collection is played from the 29th September to October 17. After that, up to five difficult ODI supplement collections and three additional test sequences against rival Pakistani rivals stretching from November 5 to December 12.

In December, the Indian team was required to live again, now for Australia to battle the world champions for an additional collection of analysis starting from December 26, then the match.

There is no break time for your athletes for up to 6 months possible. In the event that the country’s top ranked athletes from your 20-25 group are being used in various matches with caution and substitution, it is possible to expect that physical difficulties And injuries can be handled effectively.
