NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Bangladesh cricketers trained in New Delhi amid smog on Thursday (October 31) ahead of their first T20 match.

Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batsman Liton Das was seen training while wearing an anti-pollution mask. However, Das later said he was feeling unwell at that time and that’s why he chose to wear the mask.

Indian cricket board also denied requests of activists for changing the venue and said that the first match of the three-match series will be held as per schedule.

Bangladesh will play in the absence of its regular captain Shakib Al Hasan, who was banned from all cricket for two years with one year of that suspended, after the all-rounder was found to have breached the International Cricket Council’s Anti-Corruption code.
