CHRIS ROGERS BACKS SAFER HELMET DIRECTIVE
As reported by the Guardian:
Former Australian Test opener Chris Rogers has applauded measures taking helmet choice out of the hands of players. His comments follow the the decision of England cricketers Alastair Cook and Jonathan Trott to defy a directive this month to use the safer England and Wales Cricket Board-approved helmets, which brought them in line with decisions made by Cricket Australia last year, instead reverting to the helmets they had worn throughout their careers.
Rogers suffered several blows to the head in recent seasons, injuries which contributed to his international retirement after last year’s Ashes last year.
