The BCCI shares clip of Team India’s ‘hot favourite’ dish, knock as the ‘Mock Duck’ which is fancied by a lot of players.
The Indian cricket team are going into quarantine in Mumbai ahead of their departure for Sri Lanka, where they will play three ODIs and three T20Is. If the happy faces of the newcomers to the team being all smiles or if the PlayStation war between Shikhar Dhawan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar wasn’t proof enough, BCCI shared a clip from Team India’s favorite dish on Sunday.
Apparently, the dish, known as “Mock Duck” is a favorite of several players, including Sanju Samson, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, and skipper Dhawan himself. “Delicious Video Alert. Sunday’s Fix! Introducing the Mock Duck – the vegetarian delight that is #TeamIndia’s current favorite. #SLvIND,” the BCCI tweeted.
The two-and-a-half-minute clip highlights the entire recipe-making process. Contrary to its name, the dish is actually a high-protein vegetarian option, said chef Rakesh Kamble of Mumbai’s Grand Hyatt. “It’s Sanju Samson’s favorite. I asked Shikhar Dhawan to try it, and he loved it. The Pandya brothers usually order it once or twice at least in 3-4 days,” a- he declared.
Dhawan will lead a team of Young Faces that will depart for Sri Lanka on June 28, Monday. This will be the left-handed batsman’s first official assignment as Indian captain, with the top two picks Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma being in England. The Sri Lanka tour promises to be a great opportunity for young people to stand out.
Players like Devdutt Padikkal, Krishnappa Gowtham, Chetan Sakariya, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Nitish Rana, while players like Manish Pandey, Prithvi Shaw, and Sanju Samson are making a comeback. The first three ODIs take place on July 13, 16, and 18, followed by the T20I on July 21, 23, and 25. NCA chief Rahul Dravid is set to lead the team as a coach, in the presence of Paras Mhambrey and more.
