DOT Desk:  Bangladesh pacer Taskin Ahmed, who completed his first individual training at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur today following the coronavirus enforced break, said that the newly enacted saliva ban by the ICC will make things difficult for pacers but hoped to adjust with the new rules of the game. The right-armer also mentioned that the new rules seem to be going against the pacers, reports The Daily Star.
 A number of national cricketers resumed individual training at different BCB-run training facilities across the country following the board’s decision to make training facilities available for interested cricketers earlier this week.  “I think the rules are going against the pacers with each passing day,” chuckled Taskin as he talked about the saliva ban after completing his running session in Mirpur yesterday.
The ICC has banned the use of saliva on ball as an interim health safety measure in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic — a move that has raised concerns about the game becoming even more batsmen friendly.
