The preparation for India’s T20 World Cup Super 12 Group 2 match against the Netherlands in Sydney has not gone according to plan. Even though there haven’t been any issues on the cricket field, the Rohit Sharma-led squad has faced a few issues off the field. The Indian cricket team expected a full meal when they arrived at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Tuesday, but they were only served falafel, bananas, and cold sandwiches. Since they weren’t thrilled with the food, the majority of the Indian cricketers opted to skip lunch and go back to their hotel room for a meal on their own.

Despite the BCCI not filing a formal protest, the management of the Indian squad complained to the ICC about the SCG’s food service.

Until Roger Binny, an Indian cricketer who won the 1983 World Cup, took over, Sourav Ganguly, a former captain of India and BCCI president, provided his perspective on the matter. I’m certain BCCI will sort things out, Ganguly told reporters at the Calcutta Sports Journalists’ Club in Kolkata.

The food that Sydney’s teams received at the SCG was uniform, which is noteworthy. The ICC, not the local organisation, is in charge of the World Cup hospitality. The ICC said that it is examining the problem and pledged to find a swift solution.

“It’s true that the Indian team told us about their issues with the post-practice lunch. We’re looking into it, and we’ll find a solution “According to a source at the ICC, PTI.

A second incident happened on Wednesday, the day before the team’s match versus the Netherlands when the Indian team decided not to practise since the planned venue was around 40 kilometres from the team hotel. In a tournament like the World Cup, when three other teams—Netherlands, South Africa, and Bangladesh—play on the same day as India at the SCG and all teams rotate practising there, this is likewise typical protocol. India Day was on Tuesday.

Ganguly also discussed Ireland’s incredible triumph over England in the T20 World Cup on Wednesday, a five-run victory at the Melbourne Cricket Ground using the Duckworth-Lewis technique.
