Visiting South Africa sprung a surprise on Wednesday when they used a drone camera in their first training session, apparently to record the movement of the players. The team’s technical analyst Prasanna Agoram used the camera through a remote control to take an aerial view of the practice session, prompting an immediate protest from the Bangladesh Cricket Board.The SA team stopped using the camera immediately.
BCB’s chief curator Gamini de Silva immediately reported the matter to the higher authorities. The BCB officials were surprised to see the camera, which they said should not have been allowed inside the country by the airport authority.
Drone camera however is not completely new to a cricket team.
The drones are often used by Indian Premier League teams to shoot training sessions. The initiative was introduced to enhance fan experience by giving them an insight into team environments.
