New Delhi The England Cricket Board has banned wearing smart watches for players in their new season. The ECB has taken this decision to further tighten anti-corruption rules. In the new English season, players are banned from wearing smart watches on the field during all the next matches of county cricket.
Earlier, the governing body allowed the players to wear the smart watch on the field during the match. The decision was taken to allow telecommunication and Dala transmission to be stopped. It has now been decided to ban it completely for the new season.
According to an ESPNcricinfo report, now live streaming has been selected for county matches. So people all over the world can enjoy it. For this reason, the anti-corruption rule needs to be tightened now, which means that smartwatches will be banned completely in telecasts. Players and match officials will be allowed to use it at limited places (dressing rooms, ballconies, and dugouts).
Lancashire spinner Mark Parkinson gave information about how the information is conveyed to each other. Mark had told that he had received news of his inclusion in the England cricket team through a notification from his friend on the smartwatch at the 2019 County Championships.
