Delhi air pollution debate continues


The Delhi Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, which is currently hosting the third Test match between India and Sri Lanka has been a center of the storm with Sri Lankan players complaining about the poor quality in the Indian capital.
The Sri Lankan players struggled on the field during 4th day's play too.
Sri Lankan board has asked the BCCI to answer why Delhi was chosen as a venue for the match when the air quality in Delhi was so severe.
The halting of play by Lankan players as not gone down well with many including bowling Coach Bharat Arun who had said that Lankan players should have been more focused on the game and that condition was same for both the teams.
On the fourth day, poor air quality took a toll on Indian pacer Mohammed Shami as well who walked off the field and threw up.
Shami is reportedly doing fine now and is likely to play on the final day of the match.
The media reports say that Feroz Shah Kotla stadium might not get a chance to host a Test until 2020 due to Board of Control for Cricket in India rotation policy.
