The competition will be hosted under some strict guidelines which will be in line with the Australian government.

According to a report published in cricket.com.au, the clubs will be required to complete a COVID-19 Safety Plan assessment and submit it to the Northern Territory Government before they can play, and some details are still being worked out with Cricket Australia.

While International Australian players doesn’t see the sweat and saliva use as something to bother about, Darwin Cricket Management (DCM) group are working through options, including having umpires involved in ball-shining using a wax applicator.

We’re clear with the guidelines

DCM chair Lachlan Baird in his statement said that they are considering other options of ball saliva too.

“Some consideration is now being given to whether things like that wax applicator will become part of cricket’s new normal,” Baird told ABC Grandstand.

He also added that the other options which are being considered at the moment is logical since you cannot play the game with use of saliva and sweat, if it happens today. However, he added that the DCM is confident and clear with the instructions.

“We’re confident we will have clear guidelines from CA with what is and isn’t going to be allowed.”
