Pakistani cricketers, who are staying at a famous hotel in Hyderabad, Telangana, for the ODI World Cup 2023 matches at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal, recently had the opportunity to taste the famous Hyderabadi biryani. The International Cricket Council (ICC) shared a video of the encounter on social media, which quickly went viral.
In the video, the interviewer asked the cricketers about the two biryanis and which one they preferred. He also asked them to rate the Hyderabadi biryani. Pakistan skipper Babar Azam said, “Hyderabadi biryani is spicy and that is its specialty. I give 8 out of 10 marks to it.”
Pace bowler Hasan Ali gave 10 out of 10 to the very delicious Hyderabadi biryani. “It is mouthwatering and delicious. I will give 11 out of 10 marks”, batter Imam-ul-Haq said.
Babar Azam has said that he has been hearing about the great taste of the Hyderabadi biryani for a long time now and he finally got an opportunity to taste it in Hyderabad, where it has been prepared.
Another video which has surfaced shows Wasim Akram making the tough choice. He says, “There is no competition to the Biryani served in Karachi. He claimed that the biryani served in Hyderabad is dry, more like a pulao.” With this, he urged his Indian friends to not get angry.
