no halal meat! afghanistan players forced to cook own food during t20 world cup 2024 campaign: report

The T20 World Cup 2024 has now reached its business end, with the Super 8 stage happening in full flow at the moment. The top eight teams are now battling out for a place in the semi-final as the tournament as now entirely shifted to the West Indies. Afghanistan is one of the teams that everyone has their eyes on in the Super 8, as they have impressed one and all by registering a huge upset over New Zealand earlier in the tournament. However, during this phase of the tournament, the Afghan players have now also donned the roles of chefs.

According to a report by news agency PTI, the Afghanistan players have been forced to cook their own food during their stay in Bridgetown, Barbados, where they lost to India in their first game of the Super 8 stage. This is because there was no halal meat available there, which is a must -have for the players of the country.

One of the players in the Afghan squad, in an interaction with PTI, said that since Halal meat was not available in their hotel in Bridgetown. They sometimes had to go out and sometimes had to cook on their own. In fact, he even compared this to their World Cup visit in India in 2023, where every arrangement was perfect.

“Halal meat is not available in our hotel. Sometimes we cook on our own or sometimes we go out. In the last World Cup in India, everything was perfect. Halal beef is an issue here," he said.

He even stated that they had Halal meat in Saint Lucia but it is not there at all venues. He even claimed that a friend had arranged the meat for them and then cooked it on their own.

“We had it in St. Lucia but it is not there at all venues. A friend arranged it for us and we cooked on our own,” the player added.

In fact, the player even claimed there have been many logistical issues over flights and the training schedules in the Carribbean.

“There is uncertainty over flights and training schedule. We are often informed about it at the last minute. We understand that the organisers are doing their best considering logistical challenges, which are bigger in the Caribbean than anywhere else,” he said.

Afghanistan lost their first game of the Suoer 8 stage at the T20 World Cup by 17 runs against India, and will face off against Australia on June 23.
