“There is a problem of Pollution, but we have to play”- Vikram Rathore
Indian batting coach Vikram Rathore said in a statement, “I have played my entire cricket in North India. Yes, there is a problem of pollution, but we have to play because the match is already scheduled here.”
Once you’re in a game, you don’t notice these things. I think you should be a health advisor. But if you are here to play, then you have to play the match here.”
When the Indian team’s batting coach Vikram Rathore was asked about the team combination, he said, “We have just arrived, and it is the first day of practice. So far, we have not thought about the team combination. We will decide on a combination of our team soon. Players have played the game in extreme hot and extreme cold. Once you are playing the game you don’t notice all these things. It doesn’t distract to players. If you are sitting outside doing nothing you notice all this.”
