The Board of Control for Cricket in India has reportedly requested Cricket Australia to remove beef from Indian team’s menu when it travels Down Under in November for a two-month long tour.
The request was put forward by an advance party from the BCCI that travelled to Australia to inspect the venues for the upcoming tour. The two-member party was in Australia two weeks ago and had asked for the inclusion of a clause in the Memorandum of Understanding between BCCI and CA regarding the removal of beef from the menu, a report published in the Mumbai Mirror said.
“Players often complain about the blandness of food served in Australia,” an unnamed official was quoted as saying by the tabloid. “There are a few vegetarians in the team who really struggle at the grounds. The inspection team has also roped in an Indian restaurant in Australia to supply curries to the boys.”
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.

Why do you need to remove it completely. There’ll be ones who have that too.

For obvious reasons. Australia is a close competitor of India… In beef exports 😉
