Kolkata: The death of Australian batsman Philip Hughes may have reignited the debate of safety in cricket, but former India captain Nari Contractor, one of the first cricketers to fall to a bouncer, is not in favour of a "knee jerk reaction".

"It is a very tragic. Some people are calling for change in rules and do away with bouncers. If that is done, it will take away the beauty of Test cricket," Contractor told IANS over the phone.
