India will play a limited-overs series against Sri Lanka starting on July 13.
Shikhar Dhawan-led India are gearing up to face Sri Lanka for the white-ball series. The 20-member squad is currently in Mumbai and have finished their quarantine. The players were seen sweating it out in the gym, before leaving for the island nation where India plays three ODIs and three T20Is against Sri Lanka starting on July 13.
The B team will be coached by Rahul Dravid as India team head coach Ravi Shastri is away overseeing things for the team’s Test tour in the United Kingdom. While all the players seem relaxed and happy, it was a dish named Mock Duck that impressed the young squad. Contrary to its name, the dish is vegetarian and apparently the current favorite dish of the players.
Wicketkeeper-batter Sanju Samson is hooked on to the dish and keeps ordering it more often than any of the other players. Skipper Dhawan too tried the dish and loved it. With more and more players trying out the Mock Duck, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) decided to upload the video on their official Twitter page. The BCCI had Dhawan in it and he explained how the dish is made. The BCCI also gave an interesting caption to the post, “Yummy Video Alert The Sunday Food Fix!”

In a two-and-a-half minute video, the process of how to cook Mock Duck is explained. Apart from Samson and Dhawan even the Pandya brothers Hardik and Krunal are in awe of this dish. Apparently, the dish is high in protein and is very healthy.
Rahul Dravid keen on focusing on planning for the T20 World Cup 2021
Currently, India are the host for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. With the global event scheduled to take place in the next four months, Dravid confirmed that the management is keeping an eye on the marquee event and will look to give players chances to work to showcase their skills.
“These are the only three games before the T20 World Cup. I am sure the selectors and management would have a fair idea by now as to what kind of squad they are looking for T20 World Cup…Can’t read too much into it (the Sri Lanka series). There might be the odd spots and people might raise their hands up and knock on the door,” Dravid told to Times Now.
