Soumya Sarkar and one other Bangladesh player vomited on the field during the first Twenty20 International (T20I) in New Delhi on Sunday, espncricinfo.com confirmed in a report. The first T20I was played in unfavourable conditions as the air pollution level in New Delhi worsened after the festival of Diwali. However, the visiting Bangladesh side went on to win their first-ever T20I match against India as they chased down the target with seven wickets and three balls to spare. Veteran Bangladesh batsman Mushfiqur Rahim after the match had said his team found it hard to cope up with the weather ever since their arrival in India.
Rahim also said, pollution was not an issue for him and his focus was on facing the opposition bowlers.
“Pollution is not an issue for me. I was more concerned about facing the opposition bowlers than worry about pollution,” Mushfiqur told reporters.
