‘No Diet Plan Discussed’, Claims BCCI Official On Halal Meat Controversy

The alleged halaal meat diet plan inside the Indian team created a lot of buzz in the outside world and a lot of hatred came splashing in towards the Indian cricket board. At the same time quashing all the rumours and dismissing all the reports regarding Team India’s ‘new dietary plan’, BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal on Tuesday said that the board has not issued any such directive to players or support staff, and they are free to eat as per their choice.

Reports Claimed That BCCI Banned Beef And Pork

Reports on Tuesday had claimed the national cricket board (BCCI) has banned beef and pork in any form in Team India’s new diet regime. It was also reported that the players are only allowed to consume meat in ‘halal’ form. However, the BCCI treasurer has denied all the reports, saying that the so-called diet plan has never been discussed and will not be enforced.


“The BCCI has not given any direction to any player or team staff on what to eat and what not to eat. All these rumours are baseless, This diet plan has never been discussed and will not be enforced. The board doesn’t advise anyone on what to eat and what not to eat. They are free to choose their own food,” BCCI treasurer confirmed.

This Rumoured News Had Ignited A Debate

The reports on BCCI’s alleged decision had earlier ignited a debate among the netizens. While many were criticising the board’s move, few were also happy. “#BCCI_Promotes_Halal” hashtag was on the top trending list on Twitter on Tuesday but the board treasurer’s clarification may now settle the matter.


Players fitness was the primary concern

Currently the Indjan team is busy contesting with the kiwis and is ready to face them in a two test series. Post a thumping victory against New Zealand in T20s, Indians are confident for their test matches after the world test championship happened earlier this year.
