I think Tom mentioned that Sangakara is not sponsored by Ayrtek but just uses the shell as its better than anything he's used before

How well did he bat today by the way? 21 Test Hundreds for WK/Batsman for most of the time . . . which WK has the most test 100's?

I have an Ayrtek Ti grill and Albion Ti grille, I use the Albion with my Ayrtek helmet, but that's just personal preference

Think i would use my masuri ti if i got an ayrtek lid, just because the ayrtek grille doesnt allow u huge gap to see through like my masuri does.

Yeah he has 3 helmets from us now and as a qualified solicitor he obviously isn't silly when it comes to choosing the helmet that will best protect him should the worst happen and he takes one in the head.

We don't formally sponsor any players but look to supply players with free issue helmets should they request them to wear as such. He started off with an Ayrtek grille when we sent the first one out to him and wore this through the world cup, he then changed it to an Albion 98 grille and the to a normal Albion club grille.

The difficulty we have is in finding a grille that everyone likes as obviously everyone has a different shaped head/face which leads to them having a different level of eye line etc. So whatever they prefer to use is obviously up to them but the shell remains as Ayrtek as this is what is providing the protection to him.

Our titanium grille was designed so that it would fit both an Ayrtek, Albion and Masuri helmet to give people the choice as well rather than making it so that it only fits our shell. This obviously works the other way as well so should people wish to use an Ablion/Masuri grille on our shells they can do so.

Hope that all makes sense!

P.S at least i got his initials in the correct order after my 1st attempt when we were sampling for Chennai Super Kings and it ended up being CSK on the side of his helmet. Not my fault i only followed the email i received!! lol

Not in the same league as Gilchrist. Sangakkara has 7 hundreds as wicket-keeper, whereas Gilchrist 17.

Have to disagree with you there, maybe not the same type of player as Gilchrist, but 21 tests hundreds as a wk/batsman/captain is world class
