However, a few Kiwi players have breached the BIO-BUBBLE protocols and went out to play Golf, which did not go with the governing body for cricket in India Board of Control for Cricket in India(BCCI).

Considering this as a serious violation, BCCI is said to be in plans of complaining to the ICC officials over the Bio-Bubble breach. Protocols should be the same for both the teams, a BCCI official was quoted as saying.

According to the reports, Trent Boult, Tim Southee, Henry Nicholls, Mitchell Santner, Daryl Michell, and physio Tommy Simsek have breached the protocols and went out to play Golf.

It is interesting to know how the ICC responds to the alleged bio-bubble breach, considering the fact that the WTC final will commence in just two days.
