“As far as I know, the ECB didn’t grant permission to them (Ganguly and Shah). Normally, administrators go before the Test match but as per quarantine rules, since they are not playing members, they would have had to undergo a hard quarantine of 10 days,” an ECB official said.

“The team rules wouldn’t have been applicable as far as president and secretary is concerned,” the official added.
