Ajit Agarkar said, if the player corona is not infected, then the use of saliva should be exempted.

New Delhi: Former Indian fast bowler Ajit Agarkar believes that due to Covid-19 (COVID 19) pandemic, the ban on saliva is necessary for safe play, but if the disease remains normal in the investigation, the ICC (ICC) ( International Cricket Council) should consider giving its exemption. Ajit Agarkar, referring to the importance of saliva in cricket, said that it is as important for bowlers as it is important for batsmen. This ban of the ICC will be applicable from the three-Test series played between England and West Indies from July 8.


This will be the first test series in the last three months due to the Kovid-19 epidemic. Ajit Agarkar, who played 191 ODIs and 26 Tests for India, told PTI-language, “My concern is that the players will be examined before the match starts.” If he is not infected with Covid-19 then you can consider the use of saliva. Former cricketer Ajit Agarkar said, this is my view and by knowing the medical field on this issue, someone can give better information. The former bowler, however, admitted that the ICC Cricket and Medical Committee had no other option but to ban the current conditions. He said, flashing the ball is very important and no other method exists for it but for the committees (ICC Cricket and Medical Committee) it is a difficult decision. The 42-year-old bowler, who took 349 wickets in international cricket, said, Apparently they have adopted a safe method and this makes sense in the current situation. We will have to wait for the England series to end once. It is not going to be easy for the bowlers but we will have to wait.

Ajit Agarkar said that in cricket is already ‘in favor of batsmen’, the condition of fast bowlers will be more pathetic due to the ban on saliva. Ajit Agarkar ranked third in the list of highest wicket-takers for India in ODI cricket, said, “If you ask any bowler, everyone will be a little apprehensive.” However, in recent times, the pitch has been very helpful for bowlers, which balances a bit more. Overall if you look at this time batsmen dominate world cricket.
