Bangladesh head coach Russell Domingo downplayed the threat posed by the smog that is looming the capital city of Delhi over the past few days.

Domingo along with spin consultant Daniel Vettori and bowler Al-Amin were seen wearing masks during the training session at the Arun Jaitley stadium. Batsman Liton Das was seen wearing one as well, but later on, clarified that it was because of a personal health issue and not because of the pollution.

The head coach claimed that the poor air quality was not a surprise as the situation is similar back in Bangladesh as well. He added that it is just a matter of three hours and there would be no dire consequences coming out of it. He stated:

“It’s only three hours so it’s going to be easy. There maybe scratchy eyes, sore throat but that’s okay. No one is dying.”

Domingo concluded by saying that the conditions would prove to be difficult for both the teams and the game must continue without any complaints.

As far as any threat of the game being cancelled, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has made it clear that the match will go on as planned. The former Indian captain ensured that better planning would be done in the future with throwing a subtle hint that North Indian venues won’t be considered for fixtures after Diwali.
