When the game of cricket starts after the pandemic, international cricketers will have to change some of their common habits like they will not be allowed to go to the toilet during exercise and hand over their caps or sunglasses to on-field umpires.
As per the guidelines of the players, players cannot hand over their personal belongings such as caps, towels, sunglasses, jumpers etc. to the umpires or teammates and they have to maintain physical distance. But it has not been clear who will keep the players’ belongings. Not only this, the umpires also have to use gloves while catching the ball.
Players cannot keep their caps and sunglasses on the field as it can lead to penalty runs, as in the case of helmets. The ICC also wants players to spend less time in the dressing room before and after the match.
The ICC has already recommended a ban on applying saliva to the ball and now players have been advised not to touch the eyes, nose and mouth after touching the ball. In addition, after the ball is in contact, it has been spoken to clean his hands. Even during practice, the players’ problems may increase as they will not be allowed to use the toilet.
