Yuzvendra Chahal jokingly asks ICC to add a new rule for batsmen
The officials of cricket body could consider banning the use of saliva to shine the ball in international cricket. Saliva is said to be a major carrier of COVID-19 which can be risky for any player. And, Yuzvendra Chahal, the Indian revolutionary, gave his opinion on the same thing and came out with a hilarious suggestion for ICC.
Cricket activities have been halted amid the coronavirus outbreak. And cricketers find it hard to spend time in quarantine. Voices are being raised that cricket should soon be back on track. But, before that, ICC plans to introduce much-needed changes in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, such as a ban on the use of saliva.
Yuzvendra Chahal’s suggestion to ICC
Meanwhile, the ICC has received strong backlash from bowlers for its idea to ban the use of saliva. Now, Yuzvendra Chahal also echoed in the same voice, and he feels that if ICC takes such a step, the batsmen will have an additional advantage against the bowlers.
It is a well-known fact that Chahal is a very funny character. So, the 29-year-old hilariously asked ICC to add another rule that the batsmen will have to bring back the ball from the stands that they smacked for a six,
It will have an impact on drift and swing on the ball. So, in the end, it will become easier for batsmen. So another rule should be added then that if a batsman hits a six then he himself will have to bring back the ballChahal jokingly told in an interview with Sports Tak.
The leg spinner also recited the fact that it is the first occasion in the last 20 years that he is not being able to do anything. However, he looked optimistic over the same and added that these conditions will surely make every individual mentally stronger, “In 20 years of cricket career, this is the first time that I am not being able to do anything. But you can take it positively also that it will make you mentally stronger,” Chahal added.
Born in Haryana, Yuzvendra Chahal is a fine right-arm leg-spinner, who made his first-class debut at the age of 19 in an away game against Madhya Pradesh at Indore
