Manchester: Test series are being played between England and West Indies amid growing outbreak of Corona virus worldwide. However, before the introduction of international cricket in the Corona era, the ICC made several new rules. The biggest rule in this was that now no player can use saliva to shine the ball in a match. The ICC had announced a warning on breaking this rule and giving five extra runs to the opposition team on repeat. In the Manchester Test, England’s Dom Sibley was seen using saliva on the ball, after which the umpires sanitized the ball. However, Sibley has admitted his mistake.
