Special cake, vada pav, chhole bhature… sumptuous breakfast for Team India on landing

 A T20-themed cake, customised snack jars, chocolate platter and many more…this is how one of the star hotels in the national capital treated India’s T20 cricket team who returned home winning with the silver trophy. 

On landing, the Indian team were received with traditional dhol music at the ITC Maurya Hotel. The hotel staff welcomed the cricketers waving the Indian flag. The hotel prepared a special three-tier cake to celebrate the occasion. The hotel prepared a special cake for the team, with T20 trophy made of chocolate truffle, the BCCI logo and other symbols of the game. The cake was cut by team captain Rohit Sharma, stalwart Virat Kohli, and head coach Rahul Dravid.  

“The cake is in the colour of the Team’s jersey. Its highlight is this trophy, it may look like an actual trophy but this is made out of chocolate. This is our welcome to the winning team,” executive chef at ITC Maurya told ANI. The chef added special breakfast was arranged for the team at a special venue. 

According to Times Food, the hotel served a chocolate platter for the team which again was cricket-themed. The platter had an edible pitch, bat, balls, wickets and cap. 

The breakfast buffet included locally sourced seasonal fruits like mangoes and jamuns. The hotel team also served customised Mumbai-style Vada Pav and Amritsar style Chole Bhature for Virat Kohli.
