While everyone involved in the game is speculating some huge changes in cricket after the resumption of cricket, the former India cricketer, Gautam Gambhir doesn’t see any major changes in the game.

Gambhir said that the necessary social distancing norm is already there in cricket to a certain extent. The only major change which could be implemented in the game is in ball shining part.

“I don’t think a lot of rules and regulations will be changed, you can probably have an alternate for the usage of saliva apart from that I don’t think so many changes will happen,” Gambhir told Star Sports.

Players will need to live with the virus

The world cup winner further added that everyone involved in the game should get used to coping up the virus.

“Players and everyone else need to live with this virus; probably they have to get used to it that there is a virus and that it will be around. Players might end up catching it, and you got to live with it.”

Gambhir also raised his concern over other sports and asked about the possible road-map for returning of the action.

He also explained his statement of learning to live with the contagious virus and said that the social distancing is possible in cricket to a certain extent but for other sports it would be a bit tough.

“Social distancing and other rules may not be easy for any sport to maintain. You can still manage to do it with cricket, but how will you do it in football, hockey and other sports as well. So, I think you just have to live with it, probably the sooner you accept it, the better it is,”

Gambhir explained.
