Helmet PolicyCricket Australia and Cricket NSW have recently sent communication regarding the wearing of helmets when:

  • Batting against medium to fast bowlers
  • Keeping up to the stumps
  • Fielding close to the bat

HK&HDCA strongly recommend that all players follow the Cricket Australia helmet policy. This should only be an issue for Seniors as the wearing of helmets in Juniors is compulsory.
