Delhi pollution hits India as Mohammed Shami calls for medical attention in Feroz Shah Kotla Test

first_imgMohammed Shami felt uneasy and called for medical attention soon after snuffing out Sadeera Samarawickrama as the Delhi pollution continued to affect India and Sri Lankan players in the third and final Test at Feroz Shah Kotla.Sri Lankan cricketers had come out wearing masks before a 17-minute stoppage and three interruptions ensued on Sunday. Frustrated with the repeated disruptions, India skipper Virat Kohli declared the innings with India 536/7. Shami had an hamstring issue before the start of the Test match.There were no more incidents on Sunday but Sri Lankan captain Dinesh Chandimal called for medical attention early on Monday before going on to complete his 10th century. Again, on Tuesday, Sri Lankan pacer Suranga Lakmal was seen vomiting on the field.After the third day’s play Shami had said the pollution level was not as bad as it was being made out to be. However, the air quality in Delhi was hazardous all through Monday and continued to be in the same category on Tuesday when Shami himself was affected.”The pollution is not that much as shown, or maybe we are habituated to it,” the Bengal bowler told reporters at the end of the day press conference. “We should reduce the things that creates pollution,” Shami added.After calling for help, Shami had a drink of water and was taken off the attack as Kohli deployed his spinners R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja in the fading light.last_img
