Karachi Kings coach Dean Jones has cleared the air surrounding a controversy that erupted during his side’s clash against Peshawar Zalmi on the second day of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). During the 13th over of the Kings’ innings, broadcasters spotted someone using a mobile phone in the team dugout.
Under the laws set up by the ICC, the use of mobile phones is not permitted in the players’ dressing rooms and dugouts during matches underway and only walkie talkies are allowed for the team management to communicate.
While it was initially thought that one of the players or someone from the team management was violating the laws, Dean Jones has stressed that it was the CEO of Karachi Kings, Tariq, who was just doing his work and trying to finalize the details regarding a practice session for the team. Jones reiterated that in T20 cricket, the CEO or the manager can use phones.
