The International Cricket Council has replaced the bottled water provided to match venues at the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka after it was linked to a gastric illness that affected at least three teams.
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.
Starc and Hogg were isolated from the Australia team on Thursday (local time) and skipped a training session but both recovered to play in Saturday night's Group B win over West Indies in Colombo.
Five South Africa players were weakened by gastro complaints but recovered to play in the Proteas' win over Zimbabwe last Thursday.
"Although there is no evidence to suggest that water was the cause of any illness, all product supplied for use in the tournament has been replaced," an ICC spokesman said on Monday night.
The ICC's official drinks supplier is Pepsi but its brand of water is not sold in Sri Lanka so it is understood an alternative brand was provided for the tournament.
The ICC has also been confronted with questions about the timing of the tournament, which coincides with the monsoon season in Sri Lanka. One game, between the host nation and South Africa on Saturday, was reduced to seven overs a side while the Duckworth-Lewis method decided Australia's group match against the West Indies.
