Stuart Law talks about India being served cold food

Former Australian cricketer Stuart Law has spoken out about Indian players being served cold sandwiches as he called it “part of tradition”. Law even drew the contrasting hospitality present in the Asian subcontinent compared to Australia.

“It’s traditional and it’s part of the culture. We grew up with cold sandwiches at lunchtime (laughs),” Law said on ‘BatBricks7 presents Run Ki Runneeti show on CricTracker.

“I love hosting in the subcontinent, not just India but wherever you go, I mean Bangladesh won four hosts. I understand where you are from, when you go to India, Pakistan , in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, they deal with that royalty. That’s how the players are perceived in those nations,” Law said.

“In Australia, it’s not quite the same. Not to take anything away from how they were treated in Australia, but that’s the way it is. To cover 42 kms, I would not go to training sessions. I don’t think missing a training session will impact their preparation, they know how to play their game,” he added.

The team management decided to rest all the fast bowlers while the all-rounders Hardik Pandya with Axar Patel and explosive hitter Suryakumar Yadav also did not take part in the optional practice session.
