Cricket is not just a sport, for some people, it is more than a religion. It is a sport that not only unites countries but also people. Finally, it is that time of the year when people from 10 different countries come together and cheer for their nation on a single platform, the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
Cricket involves a lot of team spirit, energy, and confidence. Whether you are planning to clean bowl your opponent, hit a sixer, bowl a cutter or hit a hat-trick, nothing should hold you back, especially your vision. Cricket, like many other sports, is very entertaining but also comes with a lot of health benefits. Playing cricket improves the physical fitness of a person. It ensures coordination between you and your teammates and brings a balance in your efforts. It is a stamina-building sport that also pumps in endurance in a person. Also, this is a perfect team building sport! Without teamwork, there is no way a team can win the match.
But cricketers like many other sportsmen face the same problem of overexposure to sunlight and ultimately the UV Rays. The aftermath of such exposure can have a direct impact on your eye health. You might even have to stop playing because of temporary or permanent blindness. Howzat for the cricketers now?
Whether it’s a test match, a T20 match or just a neighbourhood match, aiming for a half century or a century requires a lot of skills and also in some cases the right equipment. Skills are
something you develop on your own but what if you want to play the sport while looking cool and sporty! Apart from a cricket bat, a cricket ball, wicket keeping pads and so on, one thing you always miss in your cricket kit are the sportsglasses. You might think they’re not a necessity but UV protection is as vital as your headgear! Whether you’re a batsman, a bowler or a keeper, sports like cricket always requires a pair of high-quality sunglasses or sportsglasses to shield yourself from harmful UV rays. Also, they’ll make finding the ball a lot easier after hitting a sixer.
But did you know that not all sunglasses can guarantee UV protection? Before you purchase a pair of sunglasses, always make sure that they have the CE symbol on it. CE is a symbol that guarantees that the classes have come with UV filters that minimise the harmful effects of UV rays. Many vendors online have now started selling these glasses as it is summertime and everyone wants to go to the playground and play. One of them being SmartBuyGlasses where I found perfect sunglasses that could be worn for cricket.
For those who play cricket, ensure that this summer onwards you have everything you need in your cricket kit, including the sunglasses! Let nothing be an obstacle in your performance during a match. Because at the end of the day “Nobody wants to really play bad cricket” as said by MS Dhoni.
Keep calm and bat on!
