BCCI tells ICC as cold food forces Team India to order meal online

Team India are currently in Australia playing the eighth edition of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 tournament. The Men in Blue kick-started their tournament with a win over the Pakistan cricket team as they beat the Green Shirts by 4 wickets at Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Meanwhile, they are preparing for the next game against the Netherlands cricket team. The game between India and Netherlands will take place at Melbourne Cricket Ground on October 27, Saturday.

India are the favourites to win the game against the Netherlands. Meanwhile, in the latest development, the Indian cricket team were not really happy with the quality of the food served at a hotel located in Sydney.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) told the International Cricket Council regarding the same. Indian cricket team were forced to order a meal online.

“BCCI has told ICC that food provided after practice is inadequate. BCCI has further told ICC – How can you give cold sandwiches after 3 hours of practice for lunch? Sandwiches are not even made, players have to make their own sandwiches.

“This is not acceptable to us. Problem was in Melbourne and now Sydney. ICC had promised to look into it but hot food is the basic. Why wasn’t it looked at earlier?” top sources told Times Now.

Meanwhile, Indian captain Rohit Sharma is happy with the way his team performed against Pakistan.

“I was in the dressing room. I don’t have any words left. You got to expect something like this in a game like this. We wanted to stay in the game for as long as possible. That crucial partnership was a game-changing moment for us. The pitch had something in it. There was nice carry. Some swing and seam. Good to see from the bowling perspective.

“They had a good partnership (Iftikhar and Masood) after that. They batted well towards the end as well. But we knew we had to bat out of our skin to chase this. Those two guys (Kohli and Pandya) are experienced. Staying calm and taking the game deep was very critical. Good for our confidence. Always crucial to get off the mark like this.

“We were in no position to win this. The way we won that’s more pleasing for us. Hats off to Virat for the way he batted, has to be the best innings he has played for India. I would like to thank everyone, it’s wonderful to see. Their support for us is very, very crucial wherever we go,” Rohit added.
