    I guess the batsman has the choice of whether to go off or stay on is basically all I can think of.

    No - the reason there is a blood rule is to ensure that HIV strains can't be spread. Therefore it is usually restrained to contact sports - of which cricket is not one. It would be expected though that the batsman would get the blood cleaned up, just for his own health and risk of infection.

    The blood rule is the same as the hit in the groin rule.... try and get fixed up whilst everyone is laughing at you.... Puts all other sports to a wussy shame

    in many contact sports it was brought in even before they knwe of the risk of infections from blood

    To be fair though, even if blood was known to have infections or not, would you like to tackle a rugby or football player with areas of blood on them?

    Out of interest, does anyone know what's happened to Ponting, whether the scar from his helmet that caused the initial blood caused any more problems?

    In fact I have just heard on Radiosport that he's had eight stiches in his cheek but is fine to take the field this morning - all I can say is thank godness helmets were invented.

    Amazing thing, of course, is that Ponting took an equal blow from an even faster bowler in Sami in that series played in unfit conditions where he couldn't wear his helmet because it was too hot.
    And all he got was a gashed jaw.

    Dean Jones' fate was inflicted also by poor captaincy.

    Just shows the difference between a bowler who skids the ball through, sami, and a bowler who hits the deck hard, harmison

    Well... not really.
    Only way we'd know was if Ponting wasn't wearing a helmet when hit by Harmison.
