Pacer Mohammed Shami, who left the field after vomiting on the fourth day of the third and final Test, is fine and will step out on the field on the final day against Sri Lanka on Wednesday, according to Shikhar Dhawan.

Sri Lanka were 31 for 3 at stumps. "Shami is fine. You will see him in action tomorrow," Dhawan told the press after the end of play.

Dhawan also admitted that the Sri Lankans may be troubled by the poor air quality in Delhi. "We have so many players who are not from Delhi. But we as a group have a job on our hand. Of course there is high pollution in Delhi. It is our responsibility to play and focus on cricket," said the left-handed batsman.

"Probably they may be feeling it. There are so many beaches in Sri Lanka and pollution level is less in places where there are beaches," Dhawan added.
