The second ODI which was played at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium saw several West Indies players wearing the masks, but it wasn't because of the pollution. It was the result of moths having invaded the field. Yes, that's right.

As has been the case over the years, moths always brace the matches with their presence under the lights in India, and the Afghanistan-West Indies match became the latest game to see moths having some fun in the middle.

It follows the first game between India and Bangladesh that was under the scanner due to pollution concerns. Although the game was played, it was reported that a few Bangladesh players had vomited during the game.

The latest episode of air quality affecting visiting team players came two years after 2 Sri Lanka fast bowlers Lahiru Gamage and Suranga Lakmal complained of respiratory problems and puked during the match in Delhi.
