South Africa cricket team apologise to Bangladesh for drone

Dhaka: The home cricket authorities ordered a halt to the use of the device, which was flying overhead taking photos during the first practice session.


The TV crew brought the drone over to try to obtain creative views and images to use for our YouTube channel.

- team manager Mohammed Moosajee said.


We do apologise to the Bangladesh military and security forces.

Bangladesh Cricket Board officials said last December the country's civil aviation authority had banned all unmanned aerial vehicles in its airspace, without prior permission, for national security as well as general safety reasons.

South Africa arrived in Bangladesh this week to play two Twenty20 internationals, three one-day internationals and two Tests against the Tigers.

The tour begins on Friday with a Twenty20 match against a Bangladesh Cricket Board XI in Fatullah.
