Phone ban ‘right call’
THE INSTILLING of right habits now will avoid problems later.
That’s the view of some of the coaches involved in the Barbados Cricket Supplies Under-13 Cricket Tournament. They were reacting to a decision to ban all cellphones and electronic devices from dressing rooms for the tournament from next year.
The move to impose the restrictions was revealed by tournament committee chairman Adrian Donovan following a number of instances of cricketers being distracted by gadgets when they should be paying attention to the game.
Corey Edwards, coach of this year’s champions, CounterPoint Wanderers, supported the decision, saying it was necessary in preparing young cricketers for future competitions. (RG)
