Australia pacer Pat Cummins has urged lawmakers to sanction the use of an artificial substance to shine the ball now that saliva looks set to be banned.
"If we remove saliva, we have to have another option. Sweat's not bad, but I think we need something more than that," he told cricket.com.au. "We've just got to make sure at the start of the spell we're sweating and we're nice and warm."
The use of wax applicators, which have been developed as subtitues, would require a change to The Laws of Cricket.
