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

After stopping Sri Lanka's ODI squad from travelling to India, Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekera on Wednesday said he would go to the extent of dissolving the present Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) administration to resurrect the national team's fortune.

On Tuesday, at the stage of the fourth day of the third Test at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium, India's Mohammad Shami and Sri Lanka's Suranga Lakmal vomited on the field. "The vice-captain not playing, it was tough on both him (Thirimanne) and the team", Chandimal told reporters."It's a tough call but Dhananjaya and Roshen Silva deserved their opportunities, especially Roshen who has scored more than 6,000 runs in domestic cricket."It's really unfortunate for Thirimanne but Dhananjaya and Roshen Silva grabbed their opportunities".

Delhi's viability as an worldwide sports venue had been called into question after Sri Lankan players complained of breathing problems due to smog and wore anti-pollution masks on two days in the third Test. "I will not hesitate even to dissolve the cricket board if it takes to that". However, the BCCI refused to pay attention to the issue and instead accused the Lankans of making a big fuss about the entire matter.

These tiny particles - a fraction the size of human hair - lodge deep in the lungs and are linked to higher rates of chronic bronchitis, lung cancer and heart disease.

"Air pollution also reduces performance of the athletes".

"My eyes are burning; my throat is dry".

It also proceeded but schedule was adjusted to avoid Delhi at its worst.

Other events in Delhi like an Asian tour golf title in November and Indian Super League football matches attract less controversy but doctors say pose no less risk. "The match can not be cancelled though pollution is everybody's concern".

The Test debacle in Delhi is not the first time cricketers have complained of air pollution in the capital, with Australia citing smoggy air following their loss to India in 1996.
