A first in wicket keeping

From Cricinfo commentary during the Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe match in the ongoing T20 World Cup:

“I am looking on in disbelief, and have pinched myself a couple of times, but yes, it does seem like Tatenda Taibu is keeping without wearing any kind of pads on his legs. First time I’m seeing this.” Take a look at the picture to see it for yourselves!

I know when we play gully cricket with a hard tennis ball, the wicket keepers never wear pads but when the game is played with the proper cricket ball, i must say, i have never ever seen a wicket keeper without pads.  More power to you, Tatenda!
