Ganguly Thanks Players for Playing Despite the Smog in Delhi

Concerns were raised due to low visibility and factors that can affect the players’ health

BCCI president Sourav Ganguly thanked players of India and Bangladesh for playing despite the smog-covered match. The match was played without any delay. However, two Bangladesh players reportedly vomited during the match. 

The concerns regarding the smog were raised especially low visibility which can hinder the match. It is also reported that the Air Quality Index (AQI) has worsened due to the smoke from firecrackers. Days before the first T20I match, the annual Diwali was celebrated where fireworks are part of the feast.

BCB chief Nazmul Hasan spoke about the severe air pollution in Delhi. ‘I had no idea about it (Delhi's pollution) until very recently. But when I saw the situation on the internet, I honestly got scared. Then I heard the schools were closed’. Hasan also said that he spoke to wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim about the issue but the player said that they can play.

Delhi government issued an advisory asking people to stay in their homes and have their outdoor activities rescheduled due to the smog. 

The second T20I match will be held on November 7 in Rajkot. India (-667) has greater odds than Bangladesh (+480). Check out the latest cricket odds on Betwala.
