Delhi pollution hits Test cricket: Sri Lanka players trolled after high drama at Kotla

first_imgSri Lanka players were trolled on social media for throwing ‘tantrums’ on the field during second day’s play of the third and final Test at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in New Delhi.The general public tore apart the Lankans on social media for showing concerns over the air quality despite the batsmen, general public and the umpires not complaining about it.Lahiru Gamage was the first one to complain about breathing issues and play was halted for 16 minutes. India lost Ravichandran Ashwin immediately after  play resumed as the visitors came out wearing masks.Gamage again called for the doctors and that led to Virat Kohli throwing his bat in frustration. The Indian captain soon fell for 243 and Ravindra Jadeja walked in. Suranga Lakmal also walked off soon after and Sri Lanka were reduced to 10 players on the field.  Sadeera Samarawickrama has been out of action due to an injury since Saturday. Play was again halted and the Sri Lankan coach Nic Pothas walked in to talk about the issue and explained that the visitors have less than 10 players on the field. After all that, the physio and fielding coach was getting ready to field. However, all this angered Kohli it seemed and he was seen calling back Wriddhiman Saha and Jadeja and indicating that ‘India will bowl, no problem’, declaring the first innings at 536/7.Delhi in recent times has been notorious for having a high pollution level and hence the protection perhaps. Strangely though, some players aren’t covering their mouths and noses and are seen having the mask hanging on their necks. Rohit Sharma and Kuldeep Yadav were among the few Indian players who were also taking the refuge of a breathing mask.advertisementThe interesting thing however was, when Dinesh Chandimal and Angelo Mathews came out to bat, they were not seen wearing anything on their face.The humidity on Sunday at 8.30 a.m. was recorded at 92 per cent.Saturday’s minimum temperature was 7.4 degrees Celsius, two notches below the season’s average while the maximum temperature was recorded at 26.4 degrees Celsius.But social media as we all know is brutal and it didn’t spare the Lankans.Pic 1: Sri Lankan players at DelhiPic 2: Sri Lankan players at Colombo airport after this series#INDvSL Dominic joseph (@dominicjo_ec) December 3, 2017Sri Lankan players atrocity ??????????????? á´??á´?É´á´?s á´?á´?á´?Éá´?á´?É´ (@TrendsTamizhan) December 3, 2017And the oscar goes to Sri Lankan players for their amazing acting skills. #DelhiSmog #INDvSL #delhipollution Subhankar Banerjee (@SubhankarBan) December 3, 2017Sri Lankan actors showing their skills in India.#INDvSL Muru Masi (@MurugesanA1) December 3, 2017Sri Lankan Players Are Wearing Masks.
