Australia’s quick Pat Cummins wants ‘something artificial’ to shine ball

Sydney: Australia’s fast Pat Cummins desires cricket`s lawmakers to approve using a synthetic substance to shine the ball after a ban on using saliva was advisable within the wake of the COVID-19 well being disaster.

The International Cricket Council`s (ICC) cricket committee has advisable the ban on using spit when the game returns after the coronavirus shut down due to fears it may result in the unfold of COVID-19.

Cricketers have lengthy used saliva and sweat to shine one aspect of the ball, altering the aerodynamics in an try and generate motion within the air because it flies in direction of the batsman.

“If we remove saliva, we have to have another option,” Cummins instructed the web site. 

“Sweat`s not bad, but I think we need something more than that, ideally. Whatever that is, wax or I don`t know what,” mentioned Cummins.

“If that`s what that science is telling us, that it`s high risk using saliva … as long as we`re keeping other options open, whether that`s sweat or something artificial,” he added.

Earlier this month, Australian cricket-ball producer Kookaburra mentioned it had developed a wax applicator to reinforce shine and support swing.

Cummins` teammate and fellow fast Josh Hazlewood mentioned the proposed ban on saliva can be tough to police.

“I`d like saliva to be used obviously but if that`s what they`ve put forward (a ban), I guess everyone is playing the same game,” he instructed Sydney`s Daily Telegraph.

“Once it comes back to you as a bowler, it`s second nature to just give it a little touch up if you see something, and that`s going to be hard to stop to be honest. And it`s a tough thing to monitor for sure.”

Cricket Australia (CA) can also be contemplating disinfecting the ball throughout matches to minimise the well being danger to gamers, the top of its medical workforce mentioned on Wednesday.
