Doctors say no to sport in Delhi as cricketers choke in smog

Doctors say no to sport in Delhi as cricketers choke in smog

Sri Lanka skipper Dinesh Chandimal termed the series as "good" as his team drew the final Test against India here.

"Others should also think about athletes health first", tweeted tournament director Javier Ceppi after images of Sri Lankan cricketers wearing face masks went around the globe.

"I want to see it reduced to 75 from the present 140", said Jayasekera, who had stopped nine players from Sri Lanka's ODI squad from travelling to India on Tuesday because he was unhappy with the team choice.

Referring to the poor show by Sri Lankan cricket team, Jayasekera said: "Give me a little time to resurrect things". As a team we are not used to these kind of conditions.

According to the BBC, India's Cricket Board says it will take smog into consideration when scheduling matches in Delhi in the future. That's what everyone did. They got some world class batsmen so it's tough for any bowler. "As a bowling unit we need to come up with very good plans and a different approach for the next series".


Squad - Thisara Perera (captain), Upul Tharanga, Danushka Gunathilaka, Lahiru Thirimanne, Angelo Mathews, Asela Gunaratne, Niroshan Dickwella (wicketkeeper), Chaturanga de Silva, Akila Dananjaya, Suranga Lakmal, Nuwan Pradeep, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Dhananjaya De Silva, Dushmantha Chameera, Sachith Pathirana, Kusal Perera.

"It was really a good innings. We picked him after the West Indies "A" team tour as he had played some good innings there", he said. We had to trust playing him at No. 3.

"He took this opportunity with both hands".

Sri Lanka is going through a hard transition phase and the current administration has been blamed for the team's poor run in global cricket.
