Ishant Sharma disappointed over ICC's decision to ban use of saliva on balls
Indian pacer Ishant Sharma expressed disappointment on the ban of Saliva to shine the ball. According to him, the saliva is used to swing the ball, without which it would be difficult to tackle a world class batsman. He thinks cricket should be fair competition and not a game which is dominated by batsman. ICC banned the use of saliva to shine the ball on June 9 citing the measures to avoid the spread of Covid-19 on field.
