Going inside the restaurant is a violation of CA’s Bio Security protocols.
Cricket Australia said in a statement, BCCI and CA have seen a video that has gone viral on social media in which Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Shubman Gill, Prithvi Shaw and Navdeep Saini are seen inside the restaurant on New Year’s Day in Melbourne. .
According to the statement, the BCCI and CA are investigating the case and are looking into whether the players’ move is a violation of the Biosurity protocols.
On the advice of the Australian and Indian medical teams, all these players have been sent into isolation, the statement said. This includes the separation of players from the Indian and Australian teams.
The five cricketers are seen in the secret kitchen of a BBQ restaurant in Melbourne, while the permission is only to sit outside and eat. Players are allowed outside, but they can remain outside the restaurant.
The Sydney Morning Herald and restaurant staff from The Age have confirmed that players visited the restaurant and sat inside.
The statement said, players will be allowed to train in strict protocols.
An Indian fan named Navdeep Singh has posted a video on social media in which he paid bill of $ 118.69 for Indian players. He has also posted pictures of players’ shopping.
The breach in the restaurant is considered to be serious as recently Covid-19 cases are rising in Victoria, where Melbourne is and Sydney where Test matches are to be played from January 7.
