Australian cricketer Alyssa Healy, who plays for the women’s national team, took a dig at the Indian team’s complaints about the hotel they have been put up in, saying that the Australia and the New Zealand women’s national teams had also been quarantined at the same hotel in Brisbane last year without complaints.

India’s cricket board has reportedly complained to the BCCI and its operations team over the inner-city hotel they are staying at in Brisbane. “It’s turning out to be a five-star jail,” a member of the Indian contingent had told The Indian Express earlier.

In particular, the tourists reportedly were upset by the fact that amenities. Such as the gym and swimming pool were not available for use.

Team India:

A Team India source was quoted by The Times of India as saying: “We are locked up in our rooms, have to make our own beds, clean our own toilets. Food is coming from a nearby Indian restaurant which will be given to us on our floor. We can’t move out of the floor that’s been designated to us.”
