New Delhi: After the hard work of the last two years, the teams of India and New Zealand are now all set to play each other in the final of the World Test Championship in England. All the preparations of these two teams have been completed now. But in the meantime a big issue has come to the fore.
New Zealand players breaking bio-bubble protocol?
The Indian team management has raised questions about the bio bubble protocol when some New Zealand players go to the golf course. According to a Cricbuzz report, six members of the New Zealand team went to the nearby golf course, while the Indian players and their families were on the hotel floor.
Indian team management complained
According to the report, New Zealand’s Trent Boult, Tim Southee, Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Daryl Mitchell and physio Tommy Simsek went to the golf course on Tuesday morning. The manager of the Indian team informed the ICC that the team considers this act a violation of the bio bubble protocol.
A member of the team told Cricbuzz, “The players and their family members were asked not to leave their floors except to enter the field. But this morning we got information that six players of the Kiwi team have gone to the golf course.
ICC said this thing
The ICC, however, said that this did not violate the protocol and now the Indian team has also completed its quarantine period and that too can do anything by staying inside the bio-bubble, including playing golf. The final match of the World Test Championship is to be played between India and New Zealand from June 18 here.
