After the Phillip Hughes tragedy Now, Cricket Australia on Wednesday announced about the new helmet attachment design that will be tested by Australian cricketers.

According to Cricket Australia high performance chief, Pat Howard the clip-on attachment, manufactured by British company “Masuri”, is made of honeycomb plastic and foam that offers protection to the exposed back of the neck, the part where Hughes was hit.”

Howard also said that Masuri invested 240 hours of development time into “Stem-Guard”. It’s really quite innovative with impact protection, comes down the side of the head and players will be given an opportunity to try it out in a game outside an international. Players are very receptive to trying it.” Howard also mentioned about Cricket Australia’s work with ICC to ensure helmet standards.

Phillip Hughes (age 25), while batting for South Australia on November 25, 2014, against New South Wales knocked unconscious by a bouncer bowled by Shane Abbott and collapsed. Two days later he died from bleeding on the brain.
