But at last after many social media criticisms and talks, great news follow for the Indian cricketers who would be making his comeback for India after a considerably long time.
Some reports suggested that the before mentioned players were given a separate bus by the management for travelling to the gym. Also, everything was done after taking care of the necessary precautions.

“The BCCI and CA are investigating the matter and seeking to determine whether the outing constitutes a breach of biosecurity protocols,” the statement added. In the interim, on the advice of the Australian and Indian medical teams, the aforementioned players have been placed in isolation as a precaution. This will include separating the group of players from the broader Indian and Australian squads when traveling and at the training venue,” it added.
