Ravichandran Ashwin and Jaydev Unadkat call for face-masks to protect bowlers after Ashok Dinda incident

The game of cricket has evolved quite a bit from the good old days from the players wearing helmets and caps to helmets and pads. Protective gears are considered crucial to avoid cases of injuries and sometimes, death. However, one person who is always in the line of fire and is never given any protective gear is the bowler.
