Indian spinner Yuzvendra Chahal feels saliva ban will affect spinners and pacers equally during the matches.

The wrist spinner reasoned that spinners will not get the required drift during the middle overs, which will make things easy for the batters.

The apex governing body of cricket ICC recently confirmed interim changes to its playing regulation as recommended by the ICC Cricket Committee amidst the COVID-19 outbreak to mitigate the risk of contagious virus if and when the action resumes.

Saliva helps pacers and spinners: Chahal

The Right-arm leg break bowler, who is yet to make his debut in the longest format of the game, talked about the effect of saliva on white ball cricket.

Explaining the matter, Chahal, who has featured in 94 One Day international matches for India , said saliva benefits spinners and pacers equally in its own way.

When you use a natural element like saliva, it helps pacers with swing and spinners with the drift,” Chahal was quoted by ESPNCricinfo as saying.

“If as a spinner, I cannot get drift in the middle overs, the batsmen will have it easy. This is something that will affect every bowler in the world. I will have to figure out a solution once I start bowling in the nets.”

Competition should be fair: Ishant Sharma

Saliva ban has been a matter of concern for fast bowlers across the globe since the news first broke. Many ex-pacers have expressed their concern on ban on saliva to shine the cricket ball.

Indian fast bowing spearhead in Tests, Ishant Sharma recently joined the list when he said banning the old exercise would make it ‘really easy’ for the batsmen.

“If we don’t shine the red ball, it doesn’t swing and if it doesn’t swing then it becomes really easy for the batsman.

I think the competition should be fair and not a batsman dominated game,” the lanky pacer who took 297 Test and 115 ODI wickets said on Star Sports Show Cricket Connected.

The star bowler also added that bowlers will have to be cautious all the time to avoid using saliva to the ball as it’s a traditional and old practice, which players have been habituated to.
