England captain Joe Root feels the ban on using saliva might improve the skills of the bowlers, who will have to work harder to get something out of the pitch.
“It could work in our favour and up skill levels.”
“Not having the assistance that you might normally have means your accuracy has to improve,” he was quoted as saying by metro.Co.Uk.
“Guys will have to find another way to get something out of the surface, whether that’s a bit more effort, changing angles on the crease, using the wobble seam they might not have in their locker.
“It could develop our bowlers in a four or five-week period.”
