Will be difficult but still possible to get reverse swing: Mohammed Shami on no-saliva rule

The International Cricket Council is set to implement a ban on the use of saliva to shine the ball due to the risk attached to the spread of Covid-19.

“Sweat and saliva work differently. I don’t think it [sweat] will help. I never tried bowling without saliva. Now because of Covid-19 pandemic, it’s very important to stop using saliva,” said Shami.
