The country may be facing the avian flu virus, but India and England cricket teams playing their first Test match in the city from March 1, will as usual relish the chicken delicacies.

"Both the teams will be served the delicious variety of chicken both in the hotel as well as in the lunch intervals during the five day Test, commencing here on March 1," General Manager of Hotel Pride, which is hosting both the teams, G Bhattacharya said, in Nagpur on Wednesday.

Both the teams will be arriving here on February 26 from Mumbai.

Bhattacharya said, "We are taking enough care and since the chicken preparations are cooked at a temperature of not less than 70 centigrade, the virus is killed. We will be more cautious and may go in for higher temperature to make sure that the preparation is cent per cent virus free."

In case of eggs, no half boiled eggs would be served but only hard boiled eggs would be given, he said.
