Haram food banned to Indian cricket team in new diet plan

MUMBAI: After the recent T20 World Cup defeat, BCCI decided tough food restrictions have been imposed on India cricketers.

According to Indian media, after poor performance in the World Cup, a new diet plan has been prepared for indian players in which pig and beef food has been banned to keep players healthy and fit.

In the dietary plan, the consumption of beef or pork by the India players is banned. "No pork and beef whatsoever in any form and variety. All meat must be Halal," is written as part of the catering requirements and marked "important".

Questions have been asked as to how the team management can restrict players from preferring their choice of food during the Test series against New Zealand, starting November 25.

Media reports claimed that the team management does not want any compromise on players’ fitness.
