While both teams are heading to Sydney for the upcoming Test, an incident took place which may put the entire series at total risk. If reports doing the rounds are to be believed, as many as 5 Indian players violated Cricket Australia’s bio-security protocols.

Indian Test team vice-captain Rohit Sharma, Navdeep Saini, Shubman Gill, Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant appeared to have breached the protocols as per the reports.

All these series of incidents took place after an elated fan posted a tweet on Twitter. A Twitter user identified as Navaldeep Singh spotted the Indian stars at Melbourne restaurant. While these superstars were at Secret Kitchen and BBQ restaurant at Chadstone Shopping Centre, the fan spotted all of them and captured the video of players.

After that, he uploaded the whole footage of these superstars on social media platforms. The fan also went on to add claiming that he was the one who paid their bill worth Rs 6,683.

He also explained the whole incident through his tweets and also claimed that wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant had hugged him and the stars obliged to take a picture with him.

The restaurant also confirmed that 5 Indian players approached at Secret Kitchen. Meanwhile, the Sydney Morning Herald also did a small investigation by contacting the staff at the restaurant in Melbourne.

SMH confirmed that a group of players turned up at the restaurant on New Year and also dined inside.Despire the cricketers staying in Melbourne, this is deemed as a violation of the rules. This is so serious because there have been many coronavirus cases in Sydney.
