BROAD SWITCHES TO MASURI HELMET
England’s Stuart Broad switched to a Masuri Vision Series helmet today [Sunday, 17 August 2014] after having his nose broken by a bouncer in the last Test. Broad took to the field in the Fifth Test at The Oval this morning in the Masuri helmet with England leading India by 252 runs.
He joins 7 other England players wearing Masuri in this final Test against India.
Masuri Managing Director Sam Miller said: “We are delighted to see Stuart Broad back fit and well and wearing one of our latest helmets.
“After Stuart was injured at Old Trafford, we were immediately asked to provide a helmet for him try out in the nets.
“Our new Vision Series range has been designed with the latest ICC December 2013 safety standard specifically in mind.
“Masuri have liaised closely with the testing team at Loughborough University to ensure the Vision Series helmets will pass the new safety standard when official testing gets underway."
The Masuri Vision Series helmet worn by Broad has a patented double bar at the top of the grille. It offers batsmen a top level of safety – even when hit by world-class fast bowling.
In the Fourth Test at Old Trafford, Broad top-edged a bouncer from Varun Aaron and the ball smashed into his nose after passing between the top of the grille and the peak of his previous helmet.
The other England players wearing Masuri Vision Series helmets in the Fifth Test are:
Jos Buttler (W)
