After a dismal performance in the T20 World Cup 2021, Team India rebounded with a 3-0 comfortable win over New Zealand in the recently ended T20 series. Despite the hosts being clinical throughout the tournament, the Men in Blue went ahead in winning all three consecutive games against the T20 World Cup finalists. Things are looking up with the beginning of the new era of Indian cricket under head coach Rahul Dravid and captain Rohit Sharma with the victory.

While many on media platforms praised the team's win, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) found itself mired in a new controversy when a report said the BCCI has prohibited beef and pork in any form from the Indian men's cricket team's new rigorous eating routine. The athletes have also been instructed to have only halal meat, according to the article.

Yet it was the Indian team management, not the BCCI, that has published the food plan for the upcoming first Test against New Zealand in Kanpur, which begins on the 25th of November. According to an article in India Today, there will be no pork or beef in any shape or kind and all meat must be Halal, according to Islamic law. It is written and designated as "important" as part of Team India's food specifications for the Kanpur Test.

The Indian team's decision to eliminate all other types of meat except halal has enraged fans, with many believing it is anti-Hindu because consuming halal meat is prohibited and against the belief. BCCI was also drawn into the debate by fans, who slammed the board over the particular diet.

There are two methods for killing an animal: the halal technique, which involves one cut of the animal and allowing it to bleed slowly, and the Jhatka method, which involves killing the animal all at once. Muslims eat only halal meat and do not consume any other form of meat.

According to India Today, the meal plan was not developed by the BCCI, but rather by the team management, which is responsible for sharing the dietary plan, as well as security and logistics, with the host board. The first Test, which will be held in Kanpur, will be hosted by the Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association. Before an international game, it is standard practice to inform the host board of the safety, dietary, and transportation plans.

Nonetheless, as the specifics of the BCCI's new nutrition plan were revealed, fans on social media criticized the organization for encouraging halal meat.

Every time the Men in Blue goes overseas for competitions or games, a meal plan is given, and the menu apparently incorporates halal meat guidelines the majority of the time. It should also be mentioned that there is a Muslim player in the present Indian Test squad.
