On the other hand, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has asked their players to not roam the streets of the UK after Rohit Sharma gets contracted Covid-19.

Considering the reports from ANI, a BCCI source has claimed, "The board has scolded some players over their habit of hanging out in public. It also seems some players went in public and clicked pictures with fans, which could be dangerous.

We had told them to stay careful but they still often roamed around in the city which is not required, so we asked them again to take precautions."
