The three-match Test series between India and Sri Lanka became the talk of the town when Sri Lankan players wore masks during the match and complained of medical issues due to toxic pollution in Delhi’s air. The match even witnessed the arrival of the medical team on the ground to check the health of the players.
While some people asked the government to look into the matter and do something to overcome this pollution, there were some who called the Sri Lankan players dramebaaz and claimed that the team did this drama to stop the match and avoid losing against Team India.

Over this, tweeple got divided into two sides. One side said India should feel shame to what they have done to its air. However, the other side trolled the Sri Lankan players and criticised their strategy to stop the match.
One of those who trolled the rivals was the reputed company Dettol.
Dettol has recently launched a smart mask. They claim that the mask has the potential to protect you from Delhi’s extremely polluted air. Endorsing the same, Dettol trolled Sri Lankan players for using wrong masks and said that the masks that they were wearing during the match cannot protect them from the pollution.
Here’s what the company tweeted:
Hi, Your players are using a surgical mask which’s ineffective against the PM 2.5 particle pollution. If you’re serious, we’ll send you 11 Dettol Sitishield N95 masks (98% protection against PM2.5) so that there’s no reason to stop the game, and delay India’s series win 😉

Dettol even sent them a pack of their mask as they promised in their previous tweet:
Hey Team Sri Lanka,
As promised, 11 Dettol SiTi Shield N95 masks are on their way to you.
Breathe safe, on and off the field!
