Sachin believes that ODIs and Test series vary. In such a situation, the bowlers should focus fully on the Test series against Australia. Accordingly, they should strategize.
Before the start of the four-Test series with host Australia, Tendulkar, while supporting the bowlers, said that the ban on the use of saliva has resulted in the bowlers being handicapped. The first match of the four-Test series is in Adelaide from 17 December. This is a daynight match.
Earlier during the IPL, Jasprit Bumrah had said that the use of saliva will not affect the test cricket the most. Because the use of saliva is important in doing reverse swing.
Tendulkar told the news agency that the bowlers have been handicapped due to the ban of saliva. At the same time, the game has gone in favor of batsmen due to lack of saliva option. For bowlers, saliva is banned in such a way that the batsmen should be banned from shooting in the scoring area. They should be told that they cannot shoot in the off side. They only need to shoot on the side.
Bowler 60 percent dependent on saliva
He added, “With the saliva ban if you don’t have an option, the bowler gets handicapped. There is always saliva and sweat in cricket. I say that saliva has more importance than sweat. Bowler saliva is 60 percent and sweat is 40 percent. In such a way, there should be no doubt that he is handicapped by separating the bowler from saliva. It needs an alternative. But there is no alternative. “
Bowlers will have to find other avenues in Test
Tendulkar feels that in the first Test match starting on Thursday, there will be other avenues to break the Australian batting order. He could not do this in ODIs and T20s. However T Natarajan impressed with bowling in ODIs and T20s. Tendulkar believes that the Test series is different and not every day is the same. In this case, it is not right to evaluate the test based on the performance of the white ball.
Forget the ODI bowler and keep thinking aside in the test
Sachin said- It is not that in every match, according to you things will happen. Sometimes it happens that batting is not in your favor, sometimes bowling is not right. Fielding is never better. This is part of the game. Not always right all the time. In the format of the white ball, the balance between the ball and the bat is not perfect. The test format is different from the white ball format. It is necessary to separate all of them. I would like the bowlers to focus on Test cricket and forget that they have bowled better in ODIs. Test cricket is different, so bowlers should think differently in the test. “
