2nd ODI: Ben Stokes warned by umpire for applying saliva on ball

England all-rounder Ben Stokes received another official warning from the on-field officials after he mistakenly applied saliva on the match ball during the Indian innings in the second ODI here on Friday. The incident occurred in the fourth over, when Stokes was found to have forgetfully applying saliva on the ball and promptly the on-field umpires Nitin Menon and Virender Sharma warned skipper Jos Buttler. Incidentally, he also took a catch in the slips in the same over to dismiss Shikhar Dhawan. Applying saliva has been banned by the ICC after matches resumed post COVID-19 forced break. This is the second time that Stokes has been warned on this tour for applying saliva on the ball. The first instance happened during the pink-ball Test in Ahmedabad
