London: The Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) call to permit players to visit sporting venues as well as other public places here and mixing with the crowd during their three-week recces is under scanner after wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant tested Covid-19 positive.
It may be recalled that Pant had paid a visit to England’s Euro 2020 pre-quarterfinal against Germany on June 29 and had later tweeted pictures of himself with his friends in the crowd.
“Good experience watching [emoticon: football] [emoticons: flags of England and Germany],” Pant had tweeted with pictures from the Wembley Stadium, the venue of the match.
Hanuma Vihari and Jasprit Bumrah are the other Indian players who have visited Wembley to watch Euro 2020. Coach Ravi Shastri and offie Ravichandran Ashwin, who played a County Championship match for Surrey this week, had also visited Wimbledon in the break.
