The incident left both of the boards stumped. Other than that the members of the tour can go outside for a walk or a breath of fresh air, but only at places with no rush.

The official stated, “This wasn’t an official event that either of the boards had organized. This particular incident is more unsettling for the board because Jay Shah(secretary of BCCI) wrote to everyone in the team before the series, asking them to be cautious and to avoid attending crowded events. The action of the team did not go down well with the board”.

Taking Safety Measures was a Must
