Cricket players barfing because of bottled water at T20?

ICC officials are believed to be investigating suggestions the gastro virus that has swept through at least three teams at the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka is linked to the type of bottled water supplied at match venues.

New Zealand trio Dan Vettori, Tim Southee and Rob Nicol and Australia’s Mitchell Starc and Brad Hogg are among those players at the tournament who’ve been struck down with gastro and upset-stomach dramas in the past week.

Southee received hospital treatment for dehydration.

Members of the Ireland team were also struck down.

But even with the barfing, cricket is still dull.
