Former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer has responded to Queensland Health Shadow Minister Ros Bates' blunt statement. Team India is reluctant on traveling to Brisbane if the quarantine restrictions aren't eased down.
The team doesn't want to undergo a strict bio-bubble and said they would prefer to stay in Sydney for the last Test. Bates replied and said Team India can stay there if they don't want to follow the protocols.
"If the Indians don’t want to play by the rules, don’t come,” she said. Jaffer wasn't impressed with the words used by Bates. He replied with a hilarious meme reminding the Aussies that the Border-Gavaskar Trophy is with them and they wouldn't mind returning home.
"Aus minister: "Play by our rules or don't come". Indian team with Border-Gavaskar trophy in the bag ????: #AUSvIND," the caption read with a picture of England cricketer Jofra Archer attached.
Team India will play the third Test at Sydney Cricket Ground from Jan 7. The fourth Test is scheduled at the Gabba in Brisbane from Jan 15.
