Five isolated Indian cricket players-sports after Melbourne dinner

While five Indian cricket players were quarantined, the Australian and Indian cricket committees investigated charges of violating biosecurity protocols after a video was released showing players eating at a Melbourne restaurant. Videos posted on social media showed Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Shubman Gill, Navdeep Saini, and Prithvi Shaw dining together on New Year’s Day. The CA said in a statement that “The Indian Cricket Tong Empire (BCCI) and the Australian Cricket Administration (CA) are investigating the matter and are working to determine whether those outings constitute a violation of the biosecurity protocol.” “In the meantime, following the advice of the Australian and Indian medical teams, the aforementioned athletes were quarantined as a precautionary measure. “This includes separating players groups from the wider Indian and Australian squads from travel and training locations.” Indian athletes can be trained while adhering to biosecurity protocols, the host management agency added. In accordance with the strict biosecurity protocol established by CA, players can sit outside, but no meals are allowed inside the restaurant. The board has fined the Brisbane Heat of the Big Bash League team. It’s after players Chris Lynn and Dan Lawrence breached biosecurity measures earlier this season. Australia and India are running a series of four tests against the backdrop of stringent health measures, and both sides are currently staying in Melbourne from Thursday before traveling to New South Wales for a third test in Sydney. On Saturday, New South Wales mandated masks and imposed new restrictions as the coronavirus cluster grew by seven, but the test match could run at 50{74ca91e3bee52d91843c282edd75c0800a88a3d8744a3a1c83b7ba867058fc3c} capacity. Australia has reported more than 28,450 Covid-19 cases and 909 deaths since the pandemic began, and has closed borders for all non-citizens and permanent residents since March.
