Without saliva, Back sweat takes major part in swing- ENGvWI Test

The England fast bowler Mark Wood said on Thursday that the players are using Back sweat in the absence of Saliva to shine & swing the ball in the first Test of England vs West Indies at Ageas Bowl. Due to the severe health crisis of COVID-19 around the world, the ICC have restricted to use the Saliva on ball. But though it did not stop West Indies bowlers to take wickets. The West Indies bowlers dismissed England (1st innings) for 204 all out with the skipper Jason Holder taking a 6-wicket haul & Shannon Gabriel taking 4 wickets.

This is the First Test cricket after the severe outbreak of coronavirus. Though International cricket resumed from Wednesday, the weather at Southampton looks so bad. The rain keep on interrupting the Test match at Ageas Bowl. On Thursday at the end of stumps, West Indies were 57/1 with Kraigg Brathwaite 20* & Shai Hope 3* at the grease. It was a disappointing day for England as they were dismissed for 204 & England bowlers didn't get it right with the ball. 

"Back sweat has been the major thing at the moment with saliva going out the window. Only your own, although we're mingling the back sweat a little on the ball, I've got some of Jimmy (Anderson's) & Jofra (Archer's)," the England bowler Mark Wood said.

"We haven't had the best day so plenty to do. I'd prefer a few in the wickets column rather than the pace column. They (West Indies) bowled well and got to give them credit, but 204 wasn't on the radar, we'd have liked 250 or 300," Wood added.

West Indies bowlers got the correct line & found their length spot to bowl, whereas the England bowlers are yet to get it right with the ball. "We didn't get it right with the ball, they got their line & length spot on. It's a bit of cobwebs and rust. My patience has definitely increased. Before I was trying to bowl too many deliveries in one spell," he said.

He further added that,"I look at consistency and patience was one of the things I was lacking. Using the crease is something I strive to do and using the angles at the point of delivery. When you're not as quick as some people, you've got to be skillful."

West Indies bowlers didn't let the England batsmen to develop the partnership with the other batsman. They were keep on dismissing them within the 50 runs of partnership with each other. Though the skipper Jason Holder had been troubled by an ankle injury in the build up to the test but produced a magnificent display of bowling, including taking the important wicket of England skipper Ben Stokes for 43 runs.
