After Sri Lankan players, Hasan Ali wears mask on the field. Is pollution taking toll on cricketers?

The young Pakistani speedster scored 35 runs and went on to take two important wickets - Shabbir Rahman and Sohail Tanveer - for his team during the game

After Sri Lankan players wearing masks during the Delhi Test became the talking point this week, Comilla Victorians’ overseas player Hasan Ali was seen wearing a mask while fielding against Sylhet Sixers at Shere Bangla Stadium in Mirpur.

According to media reports, Ali, however, didn’t use the mask due to pollution or smog but because of a minor asthma attack. While speaking to the media after the match, Comilla Victorians team manager said,

“Hasan Ali was suddenly attacked by asthma during the play. He even came out of the field for a while. He went back to the field after he was given medicines.”
