MCC has launched a new eLearning module designed to educate about concussion in cricket.
It is intended for everyone involved in the game, but specifically aimed at the grass roots level of the sport. This includes players, coaches, umpires and other officials.
It covers what signs and symptoms to look out for if a player is concussed, what course of action to take and how to manage the game from a Laws and regulations point of view, whilst also aiming to retain the Spirit of Cricket.
It also stresses that not only batter are at risk of concussion, but wicketkeepers, bowlers and fielders too.
