Fortunately for Kulkarni, he was not injured. Sachin Tendulkar, who had talked about the same issue on Monday, tweeted once again, saying why helmets should be made mandatory.

This is not the first time such an incident took place in this IPL. A few days back, Vijay Shankar too was knocked down after being hit on the helmet, while stealing a run.

Tendulkar, meanwhile has asked the ICC to make it mandatory for all batsmen to wear helmets. “The game has become faster but is it getting safer?” Tendulkar said on Tuesday, reacting to the video of the incident on Twitter. “Recently we witnessed an incident which could’ve been nasty. Be it a spinner or pacer, wearing a HELMET should be MANDATORY for batsmen at professional levels. Request @ICC to take this up on priority,” Tendulkar added, tagging all the cricket boards.
