The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has written a letter to Cricket Australia (CA) seeking relief in the Quarantine Protocol for the fourth Test to be held in Brisbane. The BCCI has said that Team India is fed up with strict quarantine rules and will have to be given a waiver to continue the Brisbane Test. The fourth Test will be played from January 15.
