Best Answer

The first cricketer to wear a protective helmet was Graham Yallop of Australia. He first demonstrated this piece of revolutionary equipment on the 17th March 1978, in the second test match of the series. Yallop was actually one of the few Australian batsmen to do well, making 47 in the first innings. There's a picture of him in the related links section on Cricinfo.
