India complain to CA about Brisbane hotel

The Indian cricket board (BCCI) and Cricket Australia (CA) are reportedly sorting out the issues faced by the India cricket team upon checking-in at the team hotel in Brisbane on Tuesday.

India had been worried about the biosecurity arrangements in Queensland -- currently closed to travellers from Sydney because of Covid-19 cases -- and the state government had provided exemptions leading to the BCCI and CA coming to an agreement.

However, once the Indian cricket team reached Brisbane and they were shocked to find out that there will not be any room service at the hotel, several Indian media outlets reported.

India's concerns reportedly included the standard of the gym, the fact that the hotel pool and restaurant were closed, and absence of room service and housekeeping.

"The board has been told that the team has been given access to all the lifts in the hotel. They can use a gym too. It has been assured that there will be room service and housekeeping," the BCCI official said.

"The team has also been given a team room where they can assemble and have meetings. Only the swimming pool is not open.

"The players are exhausted and have retired to their rooms. But they would like to go out for a stroll later ... BCCI is always by the side of its players and will ensure they get the best treatment," Times of India quoted a BCCI official as saying.

The series is tied at 1-1 and the final test will be held at the Gabba from Jan. 15-19.
