Strict Corona Rules for Australian cricketers
The ICC has introduced five new coronavirus rules and warnings. One of which is that no player can use the saliva of the mouth to say cricket before the Corona situation is completely under control. However, sweat can be used to increase the brightness of the ball.
For Australian cricketers, Strict Corona Rules have been imposed. They will not be able to use the sweat around the face, neck, and head as cricket in the upcoming series. This rule must be obeyed in the preparation match between themselves. The information came from left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc.
“The level of restrictions will be a bit higher than what you’ve seen in the series in England so far,” he said. Sweat around the neck, face, and head cannot be used now and the use of saliva is prohibited.
There have been three series in England since the Corona lockdown. Three Tests against the West Indies, three ODIs against Ireland, and three Tests against Pakistan. The three-match T20 series against Pakistan will start on Friday.
The T20 series between England and Australia will start on September 4. Later, the ODI series will start on September 11. Earlier on Friday, the visitors will play a warm-up match between Aaron Finch and Pat Cummins. As there are 21 players in the squad, the 22nd member will be taken from the local club.
Finch XI: Aaron Finch, David Warner, Marnus Labushan, Mitchell Marsh, Josh Philippe (wicketkeeper), Daniel Sam, Mitchell Starc, Andrew Tie, Riley Meredith, Nathan Lyon and one local player.
Cummins XI: Matthew Wade, Marcus Stones, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey (wicketkeeper), Ashton Agar, Shaun Abbott, Pat Cummins, Ken Richardson, Adam Jampa and Josh Hazlewood.
