The leading wicket-taker in the Ranji-Trophy 2019-20, Jaydev Unadkat feels that authorities should consider starting the game with white-ball cricket after COVID-19 pandemic to keep out Saliva and Sweat from the game.

The left handed seamer said that the use of saliva does not make any considerable change in amount of swing the ball offers in white-ball cricket. He also maintained at the same time that, however, in test cricket use of Saliva makes some difference.

“I think white ball won’t be a problem as a whole. Even in ODIs, you will be using two new balls 25 overs each. Reverse swing has never been a big factor in white-ball cricket. Even the new ball doesn’t require any sweat or saliva as far as white ball is concerned,” Unadkat told PTI during an interaction.

He further added that the white ball remains shiny even if a bowler rubs it on his trousers while the red ball demands the sweat and saliva to offer an amount of swing which could make a difference.

Cricket world is divided over the topic

Currently, the possible saliva ban to shine the cricket has become a hot topic for discussion across the globe with experts divided on the idea. Some of them think that banning saliva would be a wise decision to prevent players from the viral disease while some are against the ban.

Some of the former cricketers have already voiced their opinion about the same, advocating the use of alternative artificial substances to prevent the cricketers from any kind of contamination.

While, recently, David Warner said that it should not be banned as he never saw any player affected from this practice.

“It’s been going around for hundreds of years now, I can’t recall anyone that’s got sick by doing that.

“You’re sharing change rooms and you’re sharing everything else, I don’t see why you have to change that,” Warner had told the digital media of Australia.
