Indians are crazy about two things – Cricket and obviously food. Athletes though don’t have the luxury to eat whatever they want as more often than not they are following a strict diet routine. However, they don’t necessarily have to torture their taste buds. With world-class chefs at disposal, they are treated with some of the most delicious yet healthy foods .
Ahead of the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared a video on Twitter revealing the dish that is most enjoyed by Indian players. They captioned the video as “Yummy Video Alert Face savoring food. The Sunday Food Fix! Pot of food. Presenting Mock Duck – the veggie delight that’s the current hot favorite of #TeamIndia Man cook – by @ameyatilak #SLvIND.”
The video also features Shikhar Dhawan talking about the dish.
Dhawan said, “Here, a dish known as Mock Duck is prepared. That’s my favorite, but how is it prepared? Let’s see.”

Chef Rakesh Kamble at Grant Hyatt in Mumbai gave a tour of the kitchen where the Mock Duck is prepared. He revealed that Sanju Samson and Shikhar Dhawan are crazy about the dish. He also disclosed that the Pandya brothers order the dish once or twice every three four days.
The Indian team is currently in Mumbai and will board the flight to Sri Lanka soon. The Men in Blue will play three ODIs and as many T20Is between July 13 to July 25. The team will be led by Shikhar Dhawan while Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be his deputy.
Meanwhile, the main Indian team is in England where they will take on the Three Lions in a five-match Test series. Recently, they suffered a disappointing eight-wicket loss in the World Test Championship final against New Zealand.
