The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced certain changes in its playing conditions especially relating to the hybrid pitches and saliva being used to shine the ball on Tuesday.

The international cricketing body has allowed use of hybrid pitches for all Men’s and Women’s ODI and T20I matches and banned use of saliva permanently.

The Playing Conditions that come into effect on October 1, allow the use of hybrid pitches for all Men’s and Women’s ODI and T20I, if agreed by both teams. Currently, hybrid pitches can only be used in Women’s T20I matches.
