Australian sports products company Kookaburra will soon create a ‘wax applicator’ as an alternative to saliva and sweat, which will help bowlers in the cricket world shine after Covid-19.

In the wake of the Corona epidemic, bowlers may avoid the traditional use of saliva and sweat to maintain the glow of the ball.

There are speculations that the use of saliva to shine the ball may be banned to reduce the risk of this highly contagious disease.

According to reports, the International Cricket Council (ICC) is considering allowing the use of artificial objects under the supervision of umpires to shine the ball.

Kookaburra Group Managing Director Brett Elliott told PA News Agency, ‘Kookaburra’s research and development center in Australia is working on preparing an alternative to the traditional way of flashing the ball. We have prepared a special type of wax formula to make the cricket ball shine. ‘

This is the Kookaburra’s Wax Formula:

The player or umpire will apply this spongy object to the ball to make it shine, after which the bowler can rub his ball on the dress and brighten it the traditional way.

The new option is likely to be available in a month. However, it will be necessary to test it in the conditions of the first match. At present, the matches are being postponed due to Corona.

Kookaburra Balls were first used by the Australian Cricket Board since 1946/47 Ashes Test Series. These balls are machine made and have low seam which offers swing for 20-25 overs after that batting becomes easy and there is no help for spinners.

White Kookaburra balls are used in one-day and T20 international matches, while red Kookaburra balls are used in test matches played in most of the test-playing nations, except for the West Indies and England, who use Duke balls, and India, who use SG balls.
