Batsmen, wicketkeepers and close-in fielders wear them for safety purposes. In a first, Warren Barnes wore a helmet while bowling. Playing for Otago in New Zealand s domestic T20 competition, Barnes wore a helmet in match against Northern Districts. <p></p> <p></p>This comes in light after Nottinghamshire s Luke Fletcher was hit on the head during his follow-through. He was immediately taken to the hospital and was out of commission till November. According to reports<em>, </em>the headgear that Barnes sports is designed by Barnes and Otago coach, Rob Walter. <p></p> <p></p>The headgear is made keeping his follow-through in mind. The headgear is a combination of a helmet and a mask, that covers his forehead and crown.
