Five Bespectacled Cricketers in World Right Now

Vision is a crucial aspect for any cricketer, as it plays a fundamental role in their overall performance. A cricketer's vision encompasses various elements that contribute to their success on the field. 

A batsman's ability to see the ball is paramount to their success. Good vision allows them to pick up the line and length of the ball early, enabling them to judge the trajectory and make the right shot selection.

For bowlers, a clear vision helps them target specific areas on the pitch while aiming for a batsman's weaknesses. In the field, players need good vision to anticipate the ball's trajectory when attempting catches, intercepting throws, or preventing boundaries.
