Ahead of Delhi T20, Bangladesh players train with a mask on


With the pollution levels in Delhi reaching up to worrying levels, Bangladesh batsman Liton Das along was seen practising with the pollution masks on at the Arun Jaitley stadium in Delhi. Mushfiqur Rahim and Mustafizur Rahman were also seen at the session on Thursday. 

The air quality around Delhi has been deteriorating and has slipped into the 'severe' category with rumours of game being cancelled also coming up. This has led many to urge the BCCI to shift the match from Delhi.

BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, however, has stated that the match will go ahead and be played in Delhi as planned and that there will be no change to the schedule. 

When ANI contacted Ganguly to ask whether the match in Delhi would take place, he replied: "Yes, it will".

Former India cricketer and present BJP MP from Delhi, Gautam Gambhir however has urged the board to not conduct any matches in the city till the pollution levels come down. 

"No match or sporting event is bigger than the people of Delhi. I do not think any match should happen here in Delhi until the pollution level comes under control," said the former opener.
