He further said, “This ‘halal’ thing must have happened at some point of time on the feedback of a player. For example, if a player says that he does not eat beef and if a foreign team comes, the food should not be mixed. This Halal issue was never brought to the notice of BCCI. BCCI does not advise any of its players on what to eat and what not. Players are free to choose their own food, They want to be vegetarian, it’s their choice, they want to be vegan, it’s their choice, they want to be non-vegetarian, it’s their choice.”
