Cricket Australia Friday suspended the use of flame throwers used to signal boundaries or when a wicket falls at Twenty20 internationals after a close call in a match this week.

When the journalists in the post match presentation said him that something needs to be done about these fire flames, he said that he was shocked by the experience. He was waiting for them to go off and they didnt. He also said that such things can be pretty dangerous and something needs to be done. He said that Fireworks are to close for comfort.

CA’s executive general manager of operations Mike McKenna said the safety of players and fans was the board’s highest priority. “We were very concerned by what took place at the Adelaide Oval and as a result we’re now reviewing the operating and safety protocols of the flame units,” he said in a statement.

“Until such time as we’re satisfied that there won’t be a repeat incident, we will not be using flame units as part of any match presentation.

“The way that we present our events and the experience we create for our fans is really important and we will continue to explore innovative ways of doing this, particularly for international and domestic Twenty 20 matches.”
