Mamata Banerjee, the Chief Minister of West Bengal has now slammed the smog and Pollution conditions in Delhi. Mamata spoke to the media at State Secretariat Speaking about the Sri Lankan’s Cricket Team’s decision to wear masks during the match because of the smog, she said “It is shameful for the country to witness international level cricket players wearing masks to play a game of cricket in Delhi. I am feeling ashamed of this and that’s why I am saying all this. It is not a political issue but a genuine issue.” She also had views about the handling of the pollution in Delhi, telling the media, “In the capital city of our country, Sri Lankan players were seen wearing masks during a test match. There is a rise in air pollution level and Delhi must control it in consultation with all the stakeholders. This will be good for our country. We do not want anyone to badmouth our country.”
While Mamata has been disappointed in the authorities that aren’t able to control the pollution in Delhi, others have also blamed Sri Lanka for making a fuss about the smog when no one else in the stadium had any problems with the weather.
What Sri Lanka has taught world cricket…when You are losing, ask your physio to run in the field to kill time. When you out, cheat DRS from dressing room. When you cant bowl, cough and lie down. and when you can't perform, hide your face behind a mask #INDvSL

For Indians criticising Sri Lankan team for wearing masks ..They should be thankful to them, they kept playing .If AUS or ENG was in #Delhi instead of Sri Lanka, I am sure they would hv been off the field!!
