New Delhi. After the cancellation of the 5th Test between India and England due to Corona infection in the Indian camp, questions are being raised on the function organized in London for the release of the book of head coach Ravi Shastri. Health safety protocols were disregarded in this program. Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun, fielding coach R Sridhar and physio Nitin Patel tested positive after that ceremony held at a five-star hotel ahead of the fourth Test. All of them have received both the doses of the vaccine. Indian team’s assistant physio Yogesh Parmar has also been found positive, after which the Indian team decided not to play the fifth match. Indian captain Virat Kohli and his fellow players were present in the ceremony in which outside guests also came.
Ravi Shastri did not take permission from BCCI for the program
In this program, no one was wearing a mask due to the relaxation of rules in Britain. It is learned that either Shastri or Kohli did not take written permission from the BCCI to attend that function at the team hotel. A senior board official said, “Permission was not taken from President Sourav Ganguly or Secretary Jay Shah. Perhaps they felt that if there is a relaxation of health safety rules in Britain, then permission is not needed. The team’s administrative manager Girish Dongre’s job is to complete all the paperwork for such celebrations and ensure that the protocol is followed.
Shastri and Kohli will not be punished
A BCCI official said, “Shastri or Kohli are unlikely to be punished for this act before the T20 World Cup. After that Shastri is leaving. If Kohli is the captain then he too will not be punished. Dongre may be asked what he did as an administrative manager. He was scared to stay in isolation and bubble for ten more days. But why did he not show understanding when he agreed to go for the release of Shastri’s book?

Now the question arises that after Rishabh Pant was found positive after the World Test Championship final, Board Secretary Jay Shah had asked the players to stay away from the crowd, was it implemented. The official said, “There is a relaxation of rules in the UK but this kind of crowd should have been avoided. These people participated in the function and got scared when the cases of infection came.
