‘Can use 2 new balls from both ends’: Harbhajan’s solution to saliva ban – Times of India

MUMBAI: Veteran India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh feels two balls can be used from both ends to keep the contest between bat and ball even in Test cricket, after the International Cricket Council's (ICC) Cricket Committee recommended banning the usage of saliva in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. "You can use two new balls from both ends. One ball you can use for reverse swing, and the other ball you can use for swing. "I would say not to use those two balls for 90 overs, change them after 50 overs. As both balls will get old by 50 overs. Then there will be no shine and it won't come with sweat. The skipper should have an option to choose whether to use the new ball from one end, or both ends. But one ball should not be used more than 50 overs," Harbhajan told Sports Tak. Explaining...

Pandemic turns Egyptian soccer player Mahmoud into a street vendor – Times of India

MANFALUT (Egypt): On a hot Saturday afternoon, Mahrous Mahmoud is busy as can be. The professional soccer player, however, is working up a sweat in a different way these days — as a street vendor. At this time of the year, Mahmoud would be on the field playing as a defender for Beni Suef, a club in Egypt's second division. But like millions in the Arab world's most populous country, he has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. These days, he heads to work in a crowded market in an Upper Egypt town. Shoulder-to-shoulder, shoppers jostle around stalls as he prepares a pancake-like pastry. Prior to the pandemic, Mahmoud made about $200 a month playing for his club. That went a long way toward feeding his family of three but he also did part-time jobs to supplement it. The league wa...
