Allegations of a section of Australian media that Indian cricket stars Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya breached bio-bubble at a store in Sydney on December 7 has been quashed by the owner of the shop.
Nathan Pongrass, the owner of Baby Village, Bondi Junction said both the players were quite respectful and followed all the protocols that were in place at the time.
“They came in and spent a little bit of time. At that stage, there were no restrictions in New South Wales. We wanted to give them gifts but they wanted to pay for everything. They were just so generous with their time. They spent time talking with our staff. They were just lovely people,” Pongrass told Australian journalist Norman Kochannek for Sports Today.
“They were kind enough to take a couple of photos with our team, which wanted to share the experience with family members. We put that on social media to just show we were being proud that they had chosen to visit our store.
“Our staff was not allowed to touch them and shake hands with them. Even though there were no restrictions at the time, they were very much keeping their distance,” Pongrass signed off.
