Perera, Gunaratne return to Sri Lanka ODI squad v India


The Sri Lankans stayed strong and held their nerves to fight back as they registered a deserving draw against India in the third and final Test at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi on Wednesday.

"Greatly troubled about the recent cricket match between India and Sri Lanka in Delhi played under conditions of high levels of air pollution", IMA has written.

If the air quality index (AQI) is between 151 and 200, it is recommended that outdoor exercises should be reduced.

An AQI average above 300 is considered hazardous and is very likely to affect the entire population. I like to play ODIs because I know I can do far better.

Agarwal said air pollution impacts on performance of the athletes. "I will need to talk to the secretary and ask him to write to the Sri Lanka Cricket".

"This match should not have taken place in the first place". It is time the ICC comes up with a policy on pollution. But veteran fast bowler Lasith Malinga continues to be overlooked. "It takes a serious toll on your health in the long run". BCCI acting president CK Khanna said, "If 20,000 people in the stands did not have problem and the Indian team did not face any issue, I wonder why Sri Lankan team made a big fuss".

Whistleblower: At inauguration, Flynn texted on nuclear plan
Throughout 2015, Flynn traveled multiple times to the Middle East to discuss the project with foreign government officials. Copson had promoted a succession of nuclear projects created to include Russian participation dating back to the 1990s.

"We can not expose our athletes to inhuman levels of pollution just because a few hundred crores (tens of millions of dollars) is at stake".

The smog has become especially alarming in the past two years, casting doubt on the future of sports events.

Several athletes complained of side effects.

Even limited exposure can cause shortness of breath and make the eyes weep and throat burn. But I told him, "Nothing doing".

According to the Hindustan Times, doctors launched a legal challenge in an unsuccessful attempt to prevent the race from going ahead. "It's been bad since I landed here yesterday".
