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.

However, Fans criticised Gautam Gambhir for his Politicising tweet over the condition of Delhi. As they think this is the time to work together for the well-being of the country rather not to criticise anyone. This is not the first time Delhi is going to host a match in such conditions. In 2017 too, India played a match against Sri Lanka under polluted air. Visiting team players had faced problems in breathing and they had decided to wear masks while playing. But homeboy Virat Kohli had smashed a double ton in that match.
Here are some reaction of the fans over Gambhir’s Tweet

Delhi is the capital of our country. Would you play politics or work with the state government and try to solve the problem. Nationalism only happens when it is against Pakistan. Sad but true !!! I know this is outside your syllabus

Matlab whatever wrong & unfortunate happens in Delhi, Kejriwal is responsible. And whatever positive happens, credit goes to Modi. Wah Re Gautam Gambhir. Salute your moral bankruptcy !! …

Agree there is AAP govt in Delhi n they re not capable enough to control air pollution but as MP of central govt why dnt you take step in solving this issue. Including PM,President n other party leaders are in Delhi. Why no necessary measures?? It’s shame in front of Bangla team.
