What makes some England cricketers angry and furious with India?
The day before the Fifth Test match was cancelled, India allegedly violated Covid rules.
Unverified reports claim that Indian cricketers were seen wandering around the streets of Manchester on Thursday, the day before the match, while the entire Covid-19-related drama was unfolding inside their camp. It was reported that the Indian players were spotted in a well-known department store in Manchester on Thursday. According to reports, another member of the Indian team attended a photoshoot.
After all Indian players returned negative PCR tests on Thursday, they refused to play on Friday. Particularly, England is very upset with the Indian team since they attended an autobiography launch for Ravi Shastri this month. According to sources, this explains why the Indian squad tested positive due to its “reckless” actions.
