Lakmal Vomits As Lankans Struggle With Pollution Again


New Delhi: Suranga Lakmal left the field after vomiting as Sri Lanka players, on Tuesday – the fourth day of the final Test in Delhi, struggled with pollution once again

Sri Lanka, who were bowled out for 373 in their first innings before their last wicket was conquered within first five overs in the morning session, were back on the field for India’s second innings.

It was sixth over of the Indian innings when Lakmal was seen bending over and throwing up. The Sri Lankan physio rushed in and eventually walked off with the player.

The Indian team too decided against wearing pollution masks when it took the field on Day 3. Meanwhile, the BCCI on Monday said scheduling of matches in pollution-mired Delhi will be “considered” in future.

“Scheduling of matches in Delhi during this time of the year will be considered,” BCCI Acting Secretary Amitabh Chaudhary told reporters at the end of the third day’s play here when questions were raised about Delhi’s viability as a venue given the rising pollution levels.
