The sweet-and-sour relationship between the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) and the English team continues and the latest issue involved the number of serving waiters in the English dressing room.

While four waiters have been serving food to the English cricket team, their team management objected to the presence of "too many people" inside the dressing room and made this known to the PCA officials.

The PCA then clarified that if they were to cut down on the number of waiters then they would not get hot food.

"We told them clearly that if they want only two people to serve them, then they should not complain of cold food," a top PCA official told IANS.

"They also said that the waiters were not efficient, but I ask them whether their waiters in England are more efficient than us?"

The PCA had the last word on the issue.

Earlier, the PCA and the English team management had disagreements on several other issues, including the travel plans.
