Virat Kohli, frustrated with repeated Sri Lankan complaints over Delhi air quality, misses Test triple hundred

first_imgVirat Kohli was cruising towards a triple hundred against an insipid Sri Lankan bowling attack in third and final Test at the Feroz Shah Kotla before the visitors raised some concerns over the Delhi air quality.The air quality in the national capital was rated “very poor” this morning. After lunch, a few Sri Lankan fielders came out sporting masks as Kohli eyed his maiden triple hundred.The Indian captain had blazed away to his sixth Test double hundred in the morning and commentators felt it was matter of time before he joined Virender Sehwag and Karun Nair as only the third Indian to score a triple century in Test cricket. WATCH VIDEOSri Lanka pacers Suranga Lakmal and then Gamage complained of uneasiness and play was halted for a few minutes. Soon after play resumed, India lost R Ashwin.BCCI PhotoHowever, Sri Lanka forced play to be stopped again and this time, Kohli threw his bat away in frustration. He even attempted some shots in anger and the ball flew past the umpire at the non-striker end.Another stoppage infuriated Kohli further and he lost concentration, losing his wicket for 243 in the process.Former cricketers, commentating on air, were not amused with Sri Lanka’s antics. VVS Laxman felt this visitors needed to stop the drama and get on with it while Akaash Chopra said the islanders were making the Test match a joke.Virender Sehwag, as outspoken as ever, reckoned Sri Lanka were using the poor air quality as an excuse.advertisementFinally, after another stoppage, Kohli declared India’s innings and asked Sri Lanka to bat. Incidentally, none of the Indian players came out to field wearing a mask.last_img read more
