A Cricket Fact

How much do you know about Sports? Let's take Cricket, for instance. Here is a little known fact I bet you would have missed. I didn't know either until I got this in the mail..


A little known fact....Cricket

The first testicular guard was used in cricket in 1874 ......

............ ......and the first helmet was used in 1974!!!!!!

It took 100 years for men to realise that the brain is also important ..

No prizes for guessing right who (which gender) invented the cricket helmet..


  1. Hahaha :D It took them 100 years to know about their brain importance huh! Perhaps they just ain't smart enough to invent the helmet for the game back then. That's why. lOL ;D

  2. Cricket Helmet in wikipedia for the win :P. Actually I failed, even after reading I don't who is it haha.

  3. I lol-ed that they invented the testicular guard. Someone must have lost his sanity after having been hit XDDDDD

  4. T, perhaps a different set of priorities then.

    Ladyviral, eh?

    Jim, down there must have hurt more than up there. Oops!

    PandaB, Jiminy Cricket, who doesn't play cricket. He settled for a top hat instead of a helmet.
