Fans Are Saying That Jofra Archer Predicted India’s Bio-Bubble Breach Much Earlier: A controversy erupted after a video of Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant and 3 other Indian cricketers went viral on social media. In the video, all five cricketers can be seen eating in a restaurant in Melbourne. While Cricket Australia is still investigating if that was a breach of the bio-bubble, on the other hand, 5 Indian cricketers were isolated from the rest of the squad.
Meanwhile, England’s sensational pacer Jofra Archer was hilariously dragged in this whole scene by the fans. Jofra took to his official Twitter handle and wrote a tweet, that went viral in no time. Jofra wrote:
“Time to pack this bag.”
People were quick to relate the tweet with India’s bio-bubble breach as all the five players might have to pack their bags and head back to India if they are not allowed to participate in the 3rd Test, starting from January 7 at Sydney Cricket Ground.

Meanwhile, an official of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) accused the Australian media and Cricket Australia of creating an unnecessary controversy after Australia’s humiliating defeat against team India at the Boxing Day Test by 8 wickets in Melbourne. The official was quoted by Times of India, saying:
“The players were standing outside the restaurant and due to drizzle, they had gotten inside. If this is a way of trying to unsettle the team before the third Test, it’s a bad ploy by Cricket Australia. Firstly, they are allowed to train. Secondly, I don’t think it will come to that as then there could be adverse implications.”
“No, there has been no breach in biosecurity protocols. Everyone associated with the Indian team is well aware of the protocols. We can only term it as a malicious spin by a section of Australian media and this has started after their humiliating defeat.”
