England to bring along own chef for India Test tour

Srinagar: In a bizzare decision that has angered Indian fans, England Test Team has decided to carry own chef along for the seven week India tour that begins January 25.

England are scheduled to play five match Test series vs India in India and have decided to bring in their own chef along to cook food.

As per reports, the idea behind England getting its cook has nothing to do with local food providers’ quality (given the teams will stay in the best of five-star hotels, with some of them also having a separate restaurant for them) and more to do with the well-being of players.

“England insists it (the move) has nothing to do with not trusting hotels to provide clean facilities and is instead about ensuring players, especially those who refuse to eat spicy food, are eating nutritious meals rather than filling up on energy bars and pizzas,” the Telegraph reported first.

The report said that England Team’s chef will join the side in Hyderabad before the first Test on January 25 to stay aligned with the players and their nutrition plans and eating preferences.

England Squad: Ben Stokes (captain), Rehan Ahmed, James Anderson, Gus Atkinson, Jonny Bairstow (wicketkeeper), Shoaib Bashir, Harry Brook, Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ben Foakes, Tom Hartley, Jack Leach, Ollie Pope, Ollie Robinson, Joe Root and Mark Wood
