Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) in an official media communiqué announced that it has taken a decision to ban 'Portable Horns and Hooters" that will be brought into match venues by spectators with immediate effect.
According to SLC it arrived at this decision to generally safeguard spectator comfort inside spectator areas of the international venues.
“This does not mean that the ‘papare bands’ will be banned. The ban is on individual horns brought in by the spectators. This ban will be implemented as a rule from this Tuesday (31) in the fourth ODI between Sri Lanka and India.
The general public are warned that the security personnel will search for banned items very strictly and will confiscate the item if found.
