Arun stated that skipper Virat Kohli batted in the same weather for two days and did not require an anti-pollution mask, whereas, the entire Lankan team wore masks during the post-lunch session. Are the people of Delhi always supposed to suffer?
According to the Central Pollution Control Authority (CPCB), the air-quality fell under "severe-plus or emergency" levels at Anand Vihar in west Delhi with PM2.5 reaching 433 in the morning - 17 times the safe limit, sector 125 Noida and Vasundhara in Ghaziabad.

In all this noise it's worthwhile repeating what TOI had pointed out while publishing Harris's article back in 2015: "Many will feel Harris's account is exaggerated, but if this is how expats feel about the city's air, there is a clear risk of Delhi being regarded as a blackhole in Western capitals. You can not subject people to this". As reported by PTI, he said that visitors may have stressed on pollution to break Kohli's rhythm.
Utah State to play in Arizona Bowl versus New Mexico State

The Sri Lankan cricket team yesterday took to the field wearing anti-pollution masks while fielding on the third day of the Kotla Test against India, complaining of poor air quality that forced the hosts to declare their innings. The overall air quality index in the capital was 375 - considered to be "very poor" and hazardous to health. The Delhi Test between India and Sri Lanka witnessed something similar on Day Two during India's first innings.
With Sri Lanka players unwilling to continue, Indian head coach Ravi Shastri rushed onto the field and asked umpires Nigel Llong and Joel Willson to carry on because they want to win the match.
The tribunal also pulled up the Delhi government for not introducing odd-even vehicle rationing scheme at this point in time when the air quality was severe.
