A source told AFP on Wednesday that India’s cricket players had complained about getting cold sandwiches after practise during the Twenty20 World Cup, with some buying lunch online instead.

On Tuesday, the players participated in an optional training session ahead of their Super 12 encounter against the Netherlands at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Thursday.

They were dissatisfied with the subsequent food.

“The crew informed the ground authorities about the food we received,” an anonymous insider claimed.

“Would you be satisfied with a meal after three hours of exercise?”

“I know all of the teams are getting the same thing, but they aren’t saying anything since most of them aren’t in a position to speak up.”

The affluent Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is frequently accused of calling the shots to even the international body in cricket.

“We did not practise today and expect to obtain something better in our next net session, and if not, the players will purchase online like we did on Tuesday,” the insider continued.

According to the United Nations World Food Programme, India is home to one-quarter of the world’s undernourished population.

On Sunday, Rohit Sharma’s team defeated Pakistan in a last-ball thriller, and another win will boost their prospects of reaching the semi-finals.

The International Cricket Council is organising the World Cup in Australia with the assistance of local organisers who supply food and catering at the locations.
