Ahead of the ODI World Cup here, the Australian cricket team disclosed the Indian food they are looking forward to trying out. The International Cricket Council (ICC) posted a video on Instagram where Australia's star trio of Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith and Mitchell Marsh stuck with one of the most popular combinations in each part of India - Butter Chicken and Garlic Naan.
All-rounder Marcus Stoinis stood out with a different choice than the rest of his teammates. Stonis decided to go for a dessert rather than a main course dish and chose 'Gulab Jamun' as the dish he was looking to try out the most.
While, left-arm pacer Mitchell Sarc was left in a state of confusion and failed to name a single dish that he was looking to try out during his time in India. Australia will kick off their World Cup campaign against India on October 8 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Before that Australia will feature in a warm-up game clash against Pakistan on Tuesday. Their first warm-up game against the Netherlands was washed out due to rain.
