Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins has too joined the long list of bowlers to oppose ICC's idea of banning the use of saliva to shine the ball. During a live chat on social media, Cummins said that it's very important to shine the red ball in Tests as it plays a very important role. It will be a shame to lose the art of reverse swing and it needed to be protected. He added that if saliva is ruled out then an alternative needs to be thought of. Whether it's wax or any artificial substance, it will be difficult to get used to, as shining the ball and swinging it is too important.
