DC vs RCB IPL 2020: Because of the Kovid 19 pandemic, the ICC has made changes in many rules of cricket and players are having some difficulty in keeping pace with these new rules. One rule in these rules is that no fielder or bowler will use saliva on the ball anymore, but during the 19th match of IPL 2020, Virat Kohli might have forgotten these rules. The Delhi team batted first in this match, and this incident came to light during the fielding of RCB in the first innings of the match.
This incident happened during the third over in the first innings of the match when RCB pacer Navdeep Saini was bowling. On the third ball of Navdeep’s over, Delhi opener Prithvi Shaw hit a ball towards short cover where Virat was fielding. Virat fielded the ball and put saliva on him, though he immediately realized that he had made a mistake and regretted it by raising both hands with a smile.
