Fans Criticised Gautam Gambhir For Politicising Delhi’s Pollution Issue

Fans Criticised Gautam Gambhir For Politicising Delhi’s Pollution Issue: On November 3, Team India and Bangladesh have to play a T20I match at Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. Meanwhile, the pollution level of the capital is very high and earlier there was talks of shifting the match from Delhi. However, now the capital of the country has got the clearance to host the first T20I between India and Bangladesh.

No Surprises that fans and players are thinking about Delhi’s pollution level rather than focusing on the only match. Delhi air has reached a toxic level from quite some time now. The overall Air Quality Index level has crossed the mark of 400, on Wednesday. And this is the stage of worries as the present condition of the national capital is not promising.

An AQI between 0-50 is considered “good”, 51-100 “satisfactory”, 101-200 “moderate”, 201-300 “poor”, 301-400 “very poor”, and 401-500 “severe”. Above 500 is “severe-plus emergency” Thus, there is a question that can players play in such conditions. During the practice sessions, Bangladeshi players practised wearing masks.
