But saliva can also be the answer as through saliva only it enters the body

The exact location or the area where sporozoites are produced are the salivary glands of the infected female Anopheles mosquito. Now, saliva is also produced by the salivary glands. So, when the mosquito bites a vertebrate host, sporozoites are injected into the host along with the saliva. From there, the sporozoites enter the bloodstream and are transported to the liver, where they invade and replicate within hepatocytes. Therefore, sporozoites are produced in salivary glands but since saliva is also produced by salivary glands, sporozoites will definitely be present in saliva as well.
