Bandon Mein Tha Dum: Just before the Tour of England in India, Tim Paine hits Rohit Sharma and Indian ‘SELFISH’ cricketers, check why?

Ahead of the third Test of the 2020-21 Border Gavaskar series, Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw and Navdeep Saini were seen at a restaurant following the win in Melbourne. Players have come under intense scrutiny for breaking bio-bubble standards and putting the entire series at risk.

Speaking about the incident on Voot Select’ docu-seriesBandon Me Tha Dum‘, then Australian Tim Paine expressed his disappointment and lashed out at Rohit Sharma and Co. He said: ‘I mean these four or five guys have put the whole Test series in jeopardy. Why? For a bowl of Nando’s fries or wherever they’ve gone, I find that pretty selfish to be honest. 4-5 guys put a whole test streak at risk”

Pacer Pat Cummins, who later took over from Tim Paine, also spoke of how annoyed some members of the Australian squad were that many had missed Christmas a few days before.

“It annoyed quite a few boys, especially those who had to spend a Christmas without their families. It was a bit of a sacrifice to be there on the tour to hear the other team was flouting the rules and not taking it seriously,” Cummins said.

The incident meant the players were quarantined again. After staying inside their hotel, said players tested negative for COVID-19 and were therefore available for the third test in Sydney.

Ajinkya Rahane meanwhile suggested it was Australia’s mind games at work and the news was completely untrue of Indian stars breaking Covid rules.

Rahane said: “The players who appeared in the photos were actually waiting for their takeout order. Due to bad weather, they had to wait inside. The story that appeared in the news was really wrong. The Australian Cricket Board has said that when you go to Sydney from Melbourne no one can leave the hotel and you must self-quarantine.

He added: “The outside world, especially in Sydney, everything was normal. There was no confinement, everyone was allowed to move around and players were asked to stay indoors. We knew Australia had started playing mind games, especially after what happened in Melbourne.

Speaking about the same, Mohammed Siraj said, “If we had lost the 2nd test, this wouldn’t have happened. After making a comeback after 36 years, they were caught off guard. They suddenly reintroduced quarantine.
