Stirring up a controversy, India’s cricket body Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) tweeted the picture of menu served to the Indian cricket team at lunch which featured beef in it. 

On the third day of the second cricket Test against England at Lord's in London, the Indian cricket team's lunch menu had braised beef pasta along with other dishes.

It is unclear whether both the teams were served the same menu or it was just for India.  


However, some Twitter users in India reacted angrily at the menu for lunch while others seemed to play it down.


After lunch, Mohammed Shami struck twice to reduce England to 89 for four at the end of the first session.

Congratulating the pacer, BCCI again tweeted, "A well earned lunch for #Team India," 


In Hinduism, cows are thought to be sacred, or deeply respected. They are held in high esteem and are also worshipped.
