Saliva ban is declared permanent


The ICC announced a number of modifications to its Playing Conditions on Tuesday, the first of which is a permanent prohibition on the use of saliva to polish the ball.

Running out of the non-striker by the bowler was also moved from the “Unfair Play” section to the “Run out” area by the organisation that governs the sport.

After the Chief Executives’ Committee (CEC) approved the recommendations of the ICC Cricket Committee, which was chaired by former India captain and current BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, the amendments were made public.

Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the ICC had already prohibited using saliva to shine the ball, and the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), the custodian of cricket laws, had fully outlawed its use in its modifications to the 2022 code in March.
