Ever since the Indian Cricket Team landed in Australia, they have been unhappy with the food arranged by the Australian authorities. However, the team did not make any hue and cry, as we all know Australia is still mourning Philip Hughes’ tragedy.
But, things really turned out of control when an angry Ishant Sharma left the Gabba Stadium in Brisbane after realizing that there is no Veg preparation in the entire menu.
Both Ishant and Suresh Raina, who is also a veggie, walked out of the Gabba Stadium to procure proper vegetarian food for themselves. The duo was also accompanied by Ravi Shastri, the Team Director.
When they returned with their food packets, they were not permitted inside the stadium by the authorities. The reason? Well, they were told that beverages and food were not allowed inside the stadium.
Both the players then consumed their lunch on the footpath right outside the Gabba Stadium. One should note that, although Raina was not playing the match, Ishant Sharma was an important player. He also bowled for India on the third day.
How can Australia be so careless? Isn’t their duty to make sure the visiting players do not have any trouble within the premises?
Wonder, what the Australian authorities have to say about their poor food facilities! Perhaps, it is high time that Australians learn the concept of ‘Atithi Devo Bhav‘ from us, Indians!
