Since the Covid-19 pandemic struck, ICC had banned the use of saliva on the ball last year. As per the regulations, a warning is given if a player breaks the rule. In case of a repeat offence in the game, a penalty of 5 runs is imposed on the fielding team.

It must have been pretty difficult for the players to adapt to the new norms. The fielders have a tendency of applying saliva on the ball to keep it shiny on one side. This method has been used for a number of years. Keeping one side shiny and the other side rough aids reverse swing. However, the rule to ban that will stay in the game for a while.
