Sweat is not possible everywhere in the world: BhuvneshwarKolkata, (IANS) India fast-bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar feels it is going to be a challenge with the saliva ban to shine the ball in place as sweat is not possible everywhere in the world.

Kumar had earlier said the International Cricket Council (ICC) needs to come up with some other way for players to shine the ball as the use of saliva has been banned in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic.

“Sweat is not possible everywhere in the world, definitely it”s going to be challenging. Hope things get better soon as they were,” Kumar said on Sunday during a Twitter chat with fans using the hashtag #AskBhuvi.

Saliva ban on match ball has been one of the most talked-about regulations that has been imposed by the ICC looking at the virus threat.

“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,” Kumar had said at a webinar organised by GainAccess Sports & Entertainment and Sportz Power last month.
