The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has prohibited the use of fireworks during the remaining World Cup matches in Delhi and Mumbai owing to the deteriorating air quality in these two bustling cities.
Delhi is set to host its last match (Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka) of this World Cup one more match on November 6 while Mumbai has two league games on November 2 and November 7, and the semifinal on November 15.
“BCCI is sensitive to environmental concerns. I spoke with the ICC, and there won’t be any fireworks display in Mumbai, which can add to the pollution level,” remarked BCCI secretary Jay Shah.
