#DelhiPollution: Bangladesh cricketers puke after match

Delhi’s severe pollution is like a slow poison, bringing in many respiratory, asthma and lung diseases. The hospitals in Delhi are being recorded with a huge number of such cases. The extreme levels of pollution this year is also making Bangladesh players difficult to stay in Delhi.

The team has come to play the 1st T201 and batsman Mushfiqur Rahim expressed his concerns on the poor air quality in Delhi. He said his team is finding difficulty in playing  the game at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Sunday. In spite of government advise to shut all outdoor activities, the cricket match went on as scheduled.

On the other hand, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly said that rescheduling the match in the eleventh hour was difficult. Moreover, the Indian team was ready to play in Delhi. But things have worsened when Bangladesh opener Soumya Sarkar vomited on the field during Bangladesh's run chase of 149. Reportedly, another player too puked due to the adverse effects.

This is not the first time as two years ago, two Sri Lankan fast bowlers Lahiru Gamage and Suranga Lakmal complained of respiratory problems and puked inside the Kotla dressing room during a Test match in Delhi. Keeping the struggle in mind, "Thank u to both the teams to play this game @ImRo45 @BCBtigers under tuff conditions .. well done Bangladesh .. (sic)," Ganguly wrote on Twitter.
