CHENNAI: The Board of Cricket Control of India (BCCI) should consider atmospheric pollution’s in assessing the criteria for a match just like it considers rain and poor light, the Indian Medical Association has said.

IMA president Dr K K Agarwal has written to BCCI acting president CK Khanna and head of committee of administrators Vinod Rai.

“Air pollution also reduces performance of the athletes. In a situation where milliseconds and millimeters often determine success of athletes, air pollution can be an important factor in affecting their performance,” he wrote.

In the past two days, doctors particularly pulmonologists and cardiologists, have been talking about the need for the ICC and the BCCI to include pollution level in weather forecast.
