With the ICC likely to ban the use of saliva to shine the ball, Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc has asked for foreign substance like shining wax to shine the ball so as to keep the contest even between bat and ball. Starc said that if they're going to remove saliva to shine the ball, then they need to think of something else for that portion of time as well. Whether be the wickets being not as flat or having at least consider shining wax to a degree. He added that swing is probably a lot more in Australia where you're trying to look after that red Kookaburra and keep it in good condition. Likewise with the Duke ball in the UK, you try to maintain that swing.'
