Indian pacers rested from training session in Brisbane

Indian pacers rested from training session in Brisbane

Australian cricketer Alyssa Healy, who plays for the women's national team, took a dig at the Indian team's complaints about the hotel they have been put up in, saying that the Australia and the New Zealand women's national teams had also been quarantined at the same hotel in Brisbane previous year without complaints.

"I know there's a lot of hard work to be done and hopefully we can go out there and play a good brand of cricket that the Australian team wants to play under captain Tim Paine and make sure that we wrap up the series with a win", Lyon said. There hasn't been any official announcement from the team management or BCCI about the same. It has been assured that there will be room service and house keeping.

The Times of India quoted an unnamed senior BCCI official, who claimed that CA gave fresh assurances on Tuesday regarding the hotel facilities. They can use a gym too. The team was also seen in a huddle at The Gabba, where Shastri was seen to be giving a pep talk.

"But how is a team - struggling with injuries - expected to recover if basic amenities like pool and gym are not allowed?" But they would like to go out for a stroll later.

Skipper Virat Kohli has missed the series after the first Test as he is on paternity leave and Mohammad Shami has also been out of action due to injury.

India have been plagued by a series of injuries on their tour of Australia with Ishant Sharma and Bhuvneshwar Kumar ruled out even before the start of the Test series.

With the BCCI unable to call up any reserves due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, Mohammed Sirej, who has played just two Tests, would likely lead the pace attack.

Siraj had the third test stopped for eight minutes on Sunday afternoon after complaining to umpires of racial abuse from the crowd.

Meanwhile, Pant (elbow), Ashwin (back) and Vihari (hamstring strain) will all be monitored before India selects its starting XI for the Gabba, where Australia hasn't lost a test match since 1988.
