Alyssa Healy has sparked a social media storm after taking a thinly-veiled swipe at the Indian cricket team's complaints about their accommodation in Brisbane.

India's cricket board has reportedly complained to Cricket Australia about several aspects of the Brisbane bubble that Ajinkya Rahane's team will call home until the Test series ends.

The tourists had been reluctant to travel to Queensland's capital for the series decider that begins at the Gabba on Friday, worried about what sort of biosecurity restrictions could be on the cards.

CA chief executive Nick Hockley could be forgiven for breathing a sigh of relief on Monday after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) agreed to arrangements proposed by the home board and Queensland officials.

But the tourists made it clear to CA after Tuesday's check-in that their experience did not meet expectations, according to several media outlets in India.

India's concerns reportedly included the standard of the gym, the fact that the hotel pool and restaurant were closed, and absence of room service and housekeeping.

Speaking to the Times of India, an unnamed member of the tourists' squad describing the hotel as a "prison for all practical purposes".

"We are locked up in our rooms, have to make our own beds, clean our own toilets," the source said.

"Food is coming from a nearby Indian restaurant which will be given to us on our floor. We can't move out of the floor that's been designated to us."
