Cough and sneeze droplets are also a reason for the Kovid-19 outbreak and perhaps the reason why ICC’s biggest challenge before any time cricket starts after this global epidemic will be the sweat and sliver used to flash the ball.
The International Cricket Council can prevent players from flashing the ball after the corona virus by using slivers and sweat.
The World Health Organization has said, ‘Kovid-19 spreads mainly through the sliver of the nose while sneezing or coughing.’ Because of this, cricket players will be at risk of being affected after the game starts.
Cricketers usually use spit or sweat to shine the ball. These are considered common and valid ways of flashing the ball but it is possible in the near future that it may not be allowed.
Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins said that this was discussed during the home series against New Zealand as well, the series was later postponed.
Cummins said, “This is a difficult time.” If we do not have the risk of spreading the disease, then I can say with certainty that at this time we would have been playing on the field.
At the same time, former Australian fast bowler Jason Gillespie has also given his opinion in this debate. He said that it is possible that players can now shine the ball only in front of the umpire.
He said, ‘I don’t think it’s a strange question. This is a real situation that needs to be discussed. I am not denying any possibility. It is possible that only after every over, the umpire will allow the players to shine the ball and that too in front of them.
He said, ‘I don’t know, can players use sweat? Can only sweat be used? I do not have an answer to this question, but I am sure these questions will be discussed. If you think about it then these are reasonable questions.
