Will Pucovski suffers shoulder injury; likely to miss action at Gabba”

"All the cafes and restaurants in the hotel are shut", is how members of the traveling Indian contingent described the hotel premises. There's no other guest in the hotel. "A subluxation is a partial dislocation of the shoulder joint when the ball of the upper arm bone partly comes out of the socket in the shoulder", a statement released on Cricket Australia official website read. The directives also denied them the use of the swimming pool as Queensland, of which Brisbane is the capital, seeks to avoid community transmission of Covid-19.

'What was promised, by way of facilities, and what's being provided here are two diametrically opposite things, ' they said. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) took to Twitter to share pictures from the Gabba. It has been assured that there will be room service and house keeping, ' a senior BCCI official told the Times of India.

Amid a lot of speculation, the Indian cricket team reached Brisbane on Tuesday and were greeted with a shock as they were asked to stay in a hotel where they were reportedly locked in their rooms and had to clean toilets on their own.

Drama over quarantine that threatened to detail the tour started weeks ago when the Indian players "spat the dummy" at the though of another tough quarantine. The state of Queensland saw a few Covid-19 cases in recent days which makes the precautions and a demand for hard quarantine understandable.

And then we expect them to come back and play a full-fledged series against England, then play the IPL, then head to England for a five-Test series, then play the T20 World Cup.

Before the confirmation was given, Australian spinner Nathan Lyon hit out telling players to "suck it up" and stop complaining. 100 per cent planning on going to Brissie and sticking with Plan A. We've heard nothing (to the contrary),' he said.

'Let's just suck it up and get on with it.
