Out of favour Indian batsman, Yuvraj Singh has voiced his opinion on the current air pollution in the capital city of the country which wrecked the Sri Lankan players during the 2nd day of the 3rd and the final Test between India and Sri Lanka at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium. The Sri Lankan players were seen struggling to breathe, and most of them wore masks during the post-lunch session. As per reports, four Sri Lankan players vomited including fast bowlers Lahiru Gamage and Suranga Lakmal while a couple other were having a problem to breathe.
Indian bowling coach Bharat Arun took a sly dig at the Sri Lankans and said that Virat Kohli batted in the same conditions for nearly two days without wearing a mask. Interestingly none of the Sri Lankan players wore a mask while batting. Angelo Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal batted for the majority of the day, and they were in no discomfort throughout the day. Maybe the conditions improved but Indian fast bowler Mohammad Shami also stated that the conditions were not as bad as it was portrayed to be.
Coming back to Yuvraj, the southpaw stated that during a match all other things go out of mind and one should focus on the job at hand rather than thinking of the conditions. He further said that the conditions were same for both teams and if a match is slated to be played in a certain place then irrespective of the conditions a team should concentrate on the game.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka fought their way back into the final Test, but India should be happy with their performance in the final session which saw them bag five wickets. Current skipper Dinesh Chandimal shared a brilliant partnership of 182 runs with former skipper Angelo Mathews which prevented India from taking a wicket for the major part of the first two sessions.
