Hyderabad biryani, mutton curry..: Pakistan cricket team relishes local food
Pakistan will rely on chicken, mutton, and fish for their daily protein intake because beef is not available to all ten participating teams in India.
The early processing of their visas has allowed the Pakistan cricket squad to travel to Hyderabad. Fans gathered in large numbers to say hello to Babar Azam and his army from across the border as soon as they landed in Hyderabad, giving them a rousing welcome. A number of Pakistani athletes expressed their happiness on social media over the warm reception they received.
An athlete's diet is a crucial component of their diet, and the Pakistani players are genuinely indulging in some truly amazing Hyderabadi food.
Prior to their practise match against New Zealand on Friday, Pakistani players have already visited the training facility once since arriving in Hyderabad. Even though the players relished their first training session in India, they were also likely satisfied with the food that was supplied to them.
Since beef isn't accessible to all ten of the Indian teams who are competing, Pakistan's daily protein intake will come from chicken, mutton, and fish. PTI has access to the team's diet chart, which features dishes like grilled lamb chops, mutton curry, the increasingly well-liked butter chicken, and grilled fish.
The PTI report states that the Pakistani team has requested steamed basmati rice, spaghetti in Bolognese sauce—a favourite dish of the legendary Shane Warne—and vegetarian pulao from the stadium caterer in order to meet their carbohydrate requirements.

Given that Pakistan is visiting for nearly two weeks, the renowned Hyderabadi biryani may be served as a cheat dish.
Whatever transpires on the pitch, if the first 12 hours are any guide, Babar and his players will have an unforgettable first trip to India.
Prior to the start of the ODI World Cup, the Pakistani team is slated to play a few practise matches. Babar's team will play their second practise match against Australia on Tuesday, following their victory against New Zealand in Hyderabad on Friday.
