Depending on where you live, you may be surprised to learn that the second most popular sport in the world is cricket.
Eclipsed only by soccer, cricket is beloved by more than 2.5 billion fans worldwide, most within the former British empire—places like Australia, India, and of course the UK.
The game is played with balls and bat, so you might also be surprised to learn that it can be quite dangerous. In fact, several players have died when hit with the ball, which can travel up to 100 miles an hour.
That’s why helmets are imperative to the game.
