29 July 2012 04:34 pm - 17     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Sri Lanka Cricket has decided to ban spectators from bringing in 'Portable Horns' / ‘Hooters’ to match venues with immediate effect.

In a statement SLC stated that “Sri Lanka Cricket arrived at this decision to generally safeguard spectator comfort inside spectator areas of the stadium. This does not mean that the papare bands are banned. These are individual horns brought in by the spectators. We will be implementing this rule on Tuesday.”

The general public are warned that Security Personnel will search for the above items very strictly and will confiscate if detected.

    Probably you have not gone for a recent match. This particular horn is really irritating. We enjoy papare music so much. This is a good move.

    please give them to CMC members

    The hooters are used to Hoot at those who deserve to be hooted at.
    Like at the recent Navy Rugby match..The voice of the masses I guess.

    excellent cricket is not a third grade carnival as most of the new venue-bound people think
    its a respectable game with respectable folks watch
    we dont see these nonsense in England and in down under
    Papare bands are fine as long as they too not going out of hand with too many in too little space
    hats off to Tony for pointing out to authrities

    Misbehaving is rampant at all venues of play by young cricket lovers. It is hardly understood whether these youngsters are enjoying cricket at the performance of the players in the ground as they only drink,dance and make noisy music with painted faces.

    This was suggested by Tony Greig. Why not SLC get advice from him to run SLC also. He will be a better adviser if SLC is going to implement his suggestions.

    Very good move...those horns should be banned...Papare is fine

    So that means Nishantha is going to start a portable horns/hooters manufacturing company, get the exclusive rights to sell them at the grounds, and make a quick buck! I like your way of thinking, putha!
