Hi everyone
I’m trying to find a Cricket helmet you can buy with the old school Perspex/plastic side guards like AB is sporting here. Seems you can’t get these anymore. Grills
Only. Or Anyone with an old helmet or even just the side guards they’d be willing to part with? any idea how to find these?

You won’t be able to buy anything like that over a counter..it would have to be via eBay or a garage sale etc.

Can’t be worn in a game tho

Was Matthew Elliott the last test player to wear that style helmet? I can't think of any others of the top of my head.
Jimmy Adams would be my guess - when Elliott had his brief return he wore a grille im pretty sure.

carl Hooper also I don’t think ever wore a grille
