Sourav Ganguly the new BCCI head has come under the scanner since the time he has refused to change the location of the first T20I game. The match is set to be held on November 3rd 2019 at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. What has bothered the people is the quality of air which has slipped to the severe category across the city. Now ahead of the first game, Liton Das was seen wearing a mask while sweating in the stadium ahead of the first game.

Liton Das was seen wearing a mask while sweating it out in the nets. Whereas, some other players like Mushfiqur Rahim and Mustafizur Rahman were spotted at the ground without wearing a mask. Gautam Gambhir who is a part of BJP said that no matches should be conducted in the city until the pollution level comes under control. “No match or sporting event is bigger than the people of Delhi. I do not think any match should happen here in Delhi until the pollution level comes under control. The biggest issue that is bothering the Delhites is about pollution,” Gambhir had said.
Talking about the series, the Bangladeshi team come into the series without Shakib Al Hasan who has been suspended for a couple of years by the ICC for not reporting the advances by an Indian bookie named Deepak Aggarwal. The first match will be held at 7.30 pm on November 3rd 2019.
