Anyone who tuned into PakistanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s two T20 matches with Australia at Edgbaston this week will be forgiven for thinking they were watching another World Cup match.
Partisan Pakistani fans cheered Shahid AfridiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s side to a convincing 2-0 series win, not with their traditional Ã¢â‚¬ËœPakistan ZinzabadÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ refrain, but with the vuvuzelaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s unique Ã¢â‚¬ËœbeehiveÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ din.
Pakistani cricket fans are famous for their cacophony of noise during matches, but Sky commentator David Ã¢â‚¬ËœBumbleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Lloyd has led cricketÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s vuvuzela backlash.
The former England coach posted this on his twitter account: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Question…if you were a pakistan cricketer, which would you want to hear. PAKISTAN ZINDABAD from 10000, or 10000 horns?Ã¢â‚¬Â
The two sides now face each other in a two test series, starting at Lord’s next week.
And the home of cricket has already announced that vuvezelaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s will be banned from St JohnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Wood.
Replying to questions posed by Lloyd, and BBC correspondents Jonathan Agnew and Alison Mitchell, the Home of Cricket twitter account replied emphatically.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Just to confirm, Lord’s is a vuvuzela-free zone.Ã¢â‚¬Â
How MCC officials deal with those who will inevitably attempt to smuggle vuvezelaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s into the ground could be of great interest to football chairman up and down the country.
What do you think of the vuvuzela phenomenon? Will it sweep the country during the upcoming football season or should football clubs move to ban the horn? Have your say below.
