Internet Desk: International Cricket Council (ICC) will send medical experts to examine whether it was a right decision by India to organize a Test match against Sri Lanka in New Delhi which is under heavy smog.

The situation would also be discussed during ICC’s meeting in February. If the medical team submit a report that it was not a smart decision by the BCCI to conduct a match at New Delhi in this whether, it won't be good for the cricket board's reputation.

"The ICC has noted the conditions in which the Delhi Test was played and has already requested the issue is considered by the medical committee for guidance should the situation arise in future," said an ICC statement.

Some of the Sri Lankan cricketers were seen wearing masks while fielding in the middle during the Feroz Shah Kotla Test, which ended in a draw couple of days back. Bowlers of both the sides were seen vomiting on the ground..

The Board of Control for Cricket in India has already said New Delhi could be dropped from hosting internationals during its peak pollution season in November and December.

The ICC medical committee can make recommendations to the world body's executive on "any medical issues affecting international cricket".

It can also "evaluate" medical plans of countries hosting ICC sanctioned events.

The ICC statement said that the pollution "is likely to be discussed in February's ICC meetings".
