Two more COVID-19 protocol breaches accused on Indian players
Two more accusations are made on Indian players of potential bio-security protocol breaches by Indian players in the ongoing India tour of Australia.
Five Indian players namely Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Shubman Gill, Navdeep Saini, and Prithvi Shaw are in trouble after being suspected of a potential bio-bubble breach. The incident has created new controversy around the Indian Cricket team.
As an immediate result, the five players have been put into isolation. Still, the investigations are going around the issue and there are no official confirmations on further actions or conclusions about the incident.
Meanwhile, Australian media stated that two more accusations of potential bio-security protocols by Indian players are reported in their ongoing tour. Still, none of the new accusations are reported officially to Cricket Australia.
One accusation was on Indian skipper Virat Kohli and right-handed batting all-rounder Hardik Pandya. The Indian skipper has returned to India on paternal leave, as he is due to attend the birth of his first child. At the end of the limited-overs leg, Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya were spotted in a baby care shop in Sydney.
As both players were not wearing masks inside the shop, it is said to be a minor protocol breach, according to The Sydney Morning Herald. The other one happened in Adelaide.
Indian players were spotted dining outdoors in a restaurant in Adelaide. Dining outdoors is completely fine according to the health protocols for the players. But it is said that a couple of players went inside for placing orders, and both of them were without masks there.
