‘No one has a God-given right’: Langer takes a dig at India on quarantine issue

Australian coach Justin Langer has taken a dig at the Indian cricket teams demand about the hotel quarantine issue in Brisbane. Reports emerged on the weekend that India were looking to boycott the Brisbane Test if strict coronavirus protocols were followed again.

It was claimed that team India were mentally exhausted by the whole process. Langer though took his media opportunity on Tuesday to send a clear reminder to all players when asked about the dilemma.

“We all have a choice, that’s one thing,” the Australia coach said on Tuesday.

“No one has got a God-given right to play for Australia and for their country. Every one of us can step outside of it. I have been very consistent in saying that if anyone can deal with it cricketers can because that’s how we live most of our lives anyway.”

At present, all travellers arriving in Queensland from Sydney must undergo 14 days quarantine.

India though were clear from the outset that one quarantine period was enough.

The two sides shared a hotel with the public in Melbourne but were isolated.

“It is not much different to what we are used to,” Langer maintained.

“It’s a little bit tighter than general but we will get on with it. We know how important this Test series is.

“India beat us here [in Australia] last time and we want to make amends for that and we want to keep moving our journey forward and the only way you can do that is by concentrating on what we can and that’s playing great cricket in this third Test match in Sydney.”
