IND vs SL: Delhi Pollution makes Lankans wear masks, smog to persistDelhi Pollution has been the talk of the town for the past few days. In fact, pollution levels have been on such a high during some days that even schools were closed for a few days as Delhi continued to be smoggy.

In the last few days, air quality had seen improvement but today has been a particularly bad day for Delhi and the NCR region. The pollution levels have been on a high with a few areas in the national capital witnessing bad air quality days.


In the same conditions, India and Sri Lanka are playing their third test match. The game began yesterday and Virat Kohli, with his double centuries has been the star of the game. However, it is the Sri Lankans who have been battling pollution levels in the most peculiar manner.

The Sri Lankan team was seen wearing masks. Not only this, there were breaks taken by the Sri Lankan bowlers after almost every over as they kept complaining about the pollution. Along with this, there was a time when the Sri Lankan side had just ten players since one of them was unable to cope up with the smog in Delhi.

They had already been fielding with two substitutes and there did come a time when there were not even enough substitutes to field which forced the Indian Skipper Virat Kohli to declare the innings.

These pollution levels have caused some high voltage drama on the field at the Firoz Shah Kotla stadium today. The sad part is that the pollution levels will continue to be the same for another two to three days until light rains do make an appearance. Thus, this means that there may be some trouble in the game on Day 3 as well.
