Poor Air Quality or Mind games by Sri Lankan's.


The play was halted almost around 15 to 17 minutes in the post-lunch session after the visitor Sri Lankans, led by their skipper Dinesh Chandimal, wanted to leave the field of play protesting of severe pollution. Are the people of Delhi always supposed to suffer?

He added, "I think pollution is everywhere in our country".

India's fast bowling coach Bharat Arun, however, said that India weren't fussed about the pollution and just wanted to get on with the game. "You simply keep holding meeting after meeting, and not do anything else".

The Lankan move irked the BCCI and Team India's support staff almost called it a deliberate tactic, though the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB)'s rating of the capital's air quality remained "very poor".

Air quality dropped to hazardous levels in the city.

On November 28, the NGT had asked the Delhi government along with governments of four neighbouring states including Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan to submit their plan before December 4. It's not our problem if people don't want to stick to you.

The court said that the government was adopting a "lackadaisical" approach in dealing with the situation even as pollution had crossed alarming levels in the city and directed it to file the report by Wednesday.

The Sri Lankan cricket team yesterday took to the field wearing anti-pollution masks while fielding on the third day of the Kotla Test against India, complaining of poor air quality that forced the hosts to declare their innings. The unusual thing is that they (Sri Lanka) did not face any problem till the lunch time of the second day.

Indian coach Ravi Shastri had a very animated chat with the field umpires Nigel Llong and Joel Wilson during the 2nd day of the 3rd and the final test match between India and Sri Lanka. So in the absence of moderate winds, this mix remains suspended near the earth surface leading to escalation in the pollution levels.
