The India-West Indies series is going to end now and after that, India will be visiting Australia for a two-month long tour in which they will be playing four test matches, three ODIs and three T20Is between November 21 and January 18.

A two-member advance party was sent by BCCI a couple of weeks ago to Australia in order to do an inspection of the venues for the tour. The advance party has asked Cricket Australia to remove beef from the menu of food that will be provided to the Indian players.

An official said that vegetarian players used to face a lot of problems and many times players have complained about the tasteless food in Australia. The advance party also told that an Indian restaurant in Australia has been contacted to provide curry dishes to the Indian team.

BCCI has been very cautious after it got slammed by cricket fans when it tweeted a photo of lunch menu at Lord’s when team India visited England. That menu contained beef pasta that didn’t go well with many people.

However this time also when BCCI has asked to remove beef from the menu, people are not happy with this decision as they feel that it should not decide the eating choices of players and it should be up to the cricketers to decide what they want to eat.

Here are some reactions:
