Former England captain Joe Root rubbed the ball on the head of left-arm spinner Jack Leach. The incident happened after the 72nd over. Leach also patiently allowed Root to use the sweat on his head. The video has gone viral on social media. Commenting on the video shared by Barmy Army, former England spinner Monty Panesar also said that this is the best way to shine the ball.
Jack Leach took two wickets
Part-time bowler and debutant Will Jacks broke the 225-run opening partnership between Imam-ul-Haq and Abdullah Shafiq, with Jack Leach becoming England’s best bowler to get a wicket. Leach trapped the left-hander Imam at the hands of Azhar Ali. After this, the new batsman Azhar Ali was also made LBW cheaply.
Saliva or spit has been banned
After the Corona epidemic, there were many changes in the rules of cricket. One of these is the method of shining the ball. Now saliva or spit has been banned. If you want to shine the red ball for reverse swing, you can only use sweat. In such a situation, bowlers and captains now use the moisture of their hands and the sweat of their forehead.
