CA chief executive Nick Hockley could be forgiven for breathing a sigh of relief on Monday after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) agreed to arrangements proposed by the home board and Queensland officials.
The unnamed Indian official, who was speaking to The Times of India, said the touring party weren't happy with what they faced on arrival.
Ravichandran Ashwin battled through excruciating pain on the fifth day of the Sydney Test to help India salvage a draw. The BCCI has reportedly not been too understanding of the situation and senior members of the board - who are enquiring about their players - have no idea what president Sourav Ganguly & Co. are up to. The directives also denied them the use of the swimming pool as Queensland, of which Brisbane is the capital, seeks to avoid community transmission of Covid-19.
Stating that how will a team suffering from injury concerns recover, the source revealed how the team did not even have the basic amenities and that the hotel was empty.
"The team has also been given a team room where they can assemble and have meetings".
"The BCCI is in talks with CA over the matter", said the official, hoping that the issue will be resolved. Only the swimming pool is not open for use'.
Sundar is being considered by the team-management because he can bat a bit and him and Ashwin playing as spin-bowling all-rounders will not only bolster the batting depth but also the bowling, which now has three inexperienced pacers in Siraj, Saini, and Shardul Thakur, who is expected to make his debut ahead of T Natarajan. Six men were ejected before play resumed, and police and Cricket Australia are continuing investigations.
With the BCCI unable to call up any reserves due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, Mohammed Sirej, who has played just two Tests, would likely lead the pace attack.
