IND vs NED LIVE: Indian stars FURIOUS at SCG Hospitality, boycott lunch due to ‘COLD and INADEQUATE’ Menu – Check out
Indian players boycotted lunch at the SCG and raised their objection with the concerned officials following practice on Tuesday. The Indians had an optional training session at the Sydney Cricket Ground where they were greeted by fruits, falafel and ‘make your sandwich’ for lunch after practice.
The Indians were clearly displeased and raised a complaint with the official. While some players chose to have the falafel at the ground, others chose to have food back at the hotel.
“The food was not up to the mark. We can’t have a sandwich after a practice session,” a member of the Indian squad said.
The Indian team had an optional session attended by captain Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant, KL Rahul, Mohammed Siraj, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shardul Thakur and Deepak Hooda, along with the support staff. The entire bowling unit barring R Ashwin along with all-rounder Hardik Pandya were given complete rest. With no training on the eve of the game, the fast bowlers will return fresh for the next game.
The Men in Blue began their T20 World Cup campaign with a last-ball win over arch-rivals Pakistan in Melbourne. Rohit Sharma and Co arrived in Sydney on Monday but did not indulge in Diwali celebrations with a clear message from the captain and head coach Rahul Dravid. They will now face minnows Netherlands on Thursday at the SCG.
