Indian team management asks Cricket Australia to strike beef off the menu. The request was put forward by an advance party from the BCCI that traveled to Australia to inspect the venues for the upcoming tour. The two-member party was in Australia two weeks ago and had asked for the inclusion of a clause in the Memorandum of Understanding between BCCI and CA regarding the removal of beef from the menu, a report published in the Mumbai Mirror said.
Players often complain about the blandness of food served in Australia. There are a few vegetarians in the team who really struggle at the grounds. The inspection team has also roped in an Indian restaurant in Australia to supply curries to the boys,” a source close to the inspection team was quoted as saying in the report.
The source also revealed how fast bowler Ishant Sharma, who is part of the Test squad, struggled during the last tour of Australia.
“Earlier, players would even consume cheeseburgers while on tour. It has all changed. Even if they indulge once-in-awhile, they are a highly disciplined lot during a series, which basically means minimum red meat,” the source said.
India is scheduled to play three T20Is, four Test matches and three ODIs Down Under against the struggling Aussies. The T20I series, Test series, and ODI series will start on the 21st of November, 6th of December and 12th of January at the Gabba, Adelaide Oval and SCG respectively.
