Mohali, April 1: The Indian and Pakistani fans were not the only ones to be hit by the heavy security and traffic situation in Mohali on Wednesday.


 It has been learnt that MS Dhoni's team began the all-important semifinal clash with their neighbours without having their lunch, reports Times of India.

According to team sources, the players, who were supposed to have a light lunch before taking the field, were kept waiting because the food got delayed by the numerous security checks after the caterers managed beat the heavy traffic.

And by the time lunch finally arrived, it was too late for the cricketers to grab a bite as they had to take the field.

"The players couldn't have lunch on time. Still, we managed to win," a top BCCI source told TOI. The delay happened because of the huge presence of politicians, industrialists and celebrities at the PCA stadium.
