IND vs ENG: BCCI seek explanation from India captain and head coach over attending crowded event, reports

Published Date:

IND vs ENG: The Indian cricket team thrashed England in the fourth Test at the Oval, but things aren’t quite as they seem at the top.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is furious after learning that head coach Ravi Shastri, fielding coach R Sridhar, and bowling coach Bharat Arun have all tested positive for Covid-19.

Both head coach Ravi Shastri and captain Virat Kohli attended a public function in England to celebrate the launch of the former’s book.

According to the Times of India, Kohli and Shastri did not seek permission from the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) for the move.

According to reports of TOI, the BCCI will now demand an explanation from Kohli and Shastri for their actions.

“Photos from the event have been shared with BCCI officials. The board will probe the matter. This incident has left the board embarrassed. The coach and the captain will be asked to explain the circumstances after the fourth Test at Oval. The team’s administrative manager Girish Dongre’s role is also under the scanner,” a top BCCI official was quoted as saying by TOI on Monday.

“The BCCI is in touch with ECB and trying to ensure the series is completed without any further incidents. As of now, everyone is hoping that Shastri recovers soon. There is a selection meeting for the T20 World Cup on Wednesday. Maybe the matter will be raised there,” the official added.

Strict bio-bubble will be placed in 5th Test

“This wasn’t an official event that either of the boards had organised. This incident is all the more unsettling because BCCI secretary Jay Shah had written to every team member before the series; asking them to be cautious and refrain from attending crowded events. The action of the team hasn’t gone down well with the board,” the official said.

“There will be a proper bubble in Manchester. There’s the IPL coming up in UAE five days after the fifth Test finishes. The players will have to move in a bubble to UAE; else they will have to serve quarantine period upon reaching Dubai. Hopefully, there won’t be any further incidents once the team enters the bubble,” the official said.
