The ODI World Cup is to be played in India this year. All the teams are working hard for this tournament. Talking about the Australian team, they are currently on the tour of South Africa. Where after the T20 series, his team is playing the ODI series. After this, the Australian team will also tour India, where they will participate in the World Cup after the ODI series. Let us tell you that the ODI World Cup is to be played from October 05 this year. But just before this tournament, Cricket Australia has taken a big decision for the safety of its players. A ban can be imposed on those who do not follow it.

Big rule for players

Cricket Australia announced on Thursday that all Australian batsmen including David Warner and Steve Smith will have to wear guards to protect their necks. Since 2015, these batsmen have been preventing the use of this guard installed on the helmet. Every Australian player in international and domestic cricket will be required to wear this neck guard from October 1. Otherwise, players may even have to face a ban under the new rules introduced by Cricket Australia.

Changes to CA’s playing conditions for the 2023–24 season make it mandatory for batsmen in all CA tournaments to wear neck guards that fit behind the batting helmet when facing fast bowling. These changes will affect many of Australia’s international batsmen, including David Warner, Steve Smith and Usman Khawaja, who do not wear protectors while batting. Among the current Australian white-ball team in South Africa, Warner, Tim David and Josh Inglis are the only batsmen who have not worn this guard for neck protection.

Cricket Australia changed the rules after this incident

CA had recommended the use of this guard for neck protection after the tragic death of Australia’s star batsman Phillip Hughes due to a ball hitting his neck during domestic cricket, but many experienced players still avoid using this guard. Have been seen. Smith, who did not wear a neck guard after bowling to Jofra Archer at Lord’s in the 2019 Ashes, said they made him feel claustrophobic that year. Warner said in 2016 that he does not and will not wear it because it digs into his neck and is distracting. The update to the rules comes just a week after star all-rounder Cameron Green was ruled out of the first ODI against South Africa after being hit by a Kagiso Rabada bouncer on the neck guard attached to his Gray Nicholls helmet and suffering a concussion. In such a situation, now all the Australian batsmen will be seen wearing this guard in the ODI World Cup.
