 T20 WC Organisers Dump Water Supplier Leads Suspected Stomach Bug Spread

Several players down with stomach bugs as the International Cricket Council (ICC) Twenty20 World Cup organisers have replaced the bottled water.

They also called in food inspectors to check the spread of a suspected gastro virus at the tournament following various players going down with stomach bugs, according to officials.

Several players from New Zealand, Ireland, South Africa and Australia have reportedly been treated for stomach bugs since their arrival in Sri Lanka, with Kiwi Tim Southee even requiring hospital treatment for dehydration.

An International Cricket Council (ICC) spokesperson said the brand of bottled water used by players and officials so far in the tournament had been replaced.

"Although there is no evidence to suggest that water was the cause of any illness, the product supplied for use in the tournament has been replaced," Sports24 quoted an ICC spokesperson, as saying.

A well-placed source in Sri Lanka connected with the tournament said public health inspectors had checked the food given to the players and found nothing troublesome.

"If an entire team, or at least a majority, go down, we can understand that there is something wrong with the food and beverages department. Just a few players have been affected," the source said.

No official complaints had been lodged by any of the teams, the source added.

Among players who went down with gastro trouble over the past two weeks included New Zealand's Daniel Vettori, Mitchell Starc and Brad Hogg of Australia, and Paul Stirling and George Dockrell of Ireland.
