India vs Australia: Alyssa Healy Takes Dig at Indian Team for Complaining About Strict Quarantine; Fans Call Her Out

Reacting to a report saying the Indian players were locked in their hotel rooms and had to make their beds and clean their toilets, Healy tweeted, “The (Australia) and (New Zealand) women’s teams did their quarantine in the same hotel last year. Here’s a shock – we survived.”

The members of the Indian contingent travelled to Brisbane after finishing the third Test in Sydney. They have complained that they were not being allowed to leave the hotel floor designated to them and use any amenities including the gym and swimming pool. They have been denied the room service and have to make their own beds and clean toilets.

Healy’s statement created a furore on the microblogging platform as the fans pointed out how the Indians have struggled after back to back series and undergoing prolonged stay in quarantine.

“Half of the Indian team is broken, many cricketers are not able to stand and walk after the SCG match, they haven't asked you anything other than 'hygiene'! When it comes to mental health concerns, does it apply to Maxwell & Pucovski only?” tweeted one fan.

Another user wrote that the players have been in quarantine for over four months now and many of them are dealing with injuries and at such a time, asking them to clean bathrooms was too much.

One person pointed out how the Indian players have been in bio-bubbles for close to six months and that many of them “will head straight into a bubble upon arrival in India with the Test series against England starting February 5.”
