On special demand from Indian cricketers, BCCI sent face saving helmets for 3rd one day international match against South Africa. The helmets will have dual benefits first the helmets would help batsmen to face South African bowlers on the bouncy pitches and second they could preserve their handsome faces for the advertisement endorsements.

"There is a big chance that our face could be thrashed by any of the bowls bowled by South African bowlers and therefore it restricts us to take risk of hitting fours and sixes," said Indian star batsman Virat Kohli before the match.

He confirmed that the prevailing helmets are difficult to save their faces and resulting into problems with ad endorsements.

"Our faces are our assets. This is true with Ishant Sharma as well. If any of us would have scar on our faces then ad companies may cancel advertisement projects and therefore after a lot of discussions with other team members and management we asked BCCI to send these specially made helmets for us. We will continue to use these helmets in Australia, New Zealand, England and West Indies," said Kohli.

According to the sources, the helmets have one added advantage. These helmets are made in such a way that they will easily scare South African bowlers.
