Saliva ban on match ball has been one of the most talked-about regulations that has been imposed by the ICC recently. As the use of saliva has been banned in the wake of coronavirus transmission.

The right handed pacer feels that in order to make it move around the ball, the bowlers need to shine the ball. Therefore, the International cricket body has to come up with a solution so that players can still shine the ball in a alternative way.

“I hope the ICC comes up with some artificial way by which we can shine the ball. You need to do it when you bowl in swinging conditions in (places like) England. Even the spinners need it,” Bhuvneshwar said at a webinar organised by GainAccess Sports & Entertainment and Sportz Power.

The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League, which remains suspended indefinitely due to coronavirus pandemic, Bhuvneshwar feels that the tournament must take place. Although it was originally slated to be begin on March 29 but it’s expecting to arrange at the end of the running year.
