Team India’s flight to West Indies costs BCCI Rs 3.5 crore | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: The BCCI spent round Rs 3.5 crore on reserving a chartered flight for Team India to attain the West Indies – the place they’re going to play three ODIs and 5 T20Is in opposition to the hosts – from England, a supply has revealed to TOI.
“The BCCI spent Rs 3.5 crore on the chartered flight which took Team India from Manchester on Tuesday afternoon to Port of Spain (the capital of Trinidad and Tobago) by 11.30 pm IST. The reason a chartered flight was booked for the team was not Covid-19. It’s difficult to book so many tickets in a commercial flight-the Indian contingent includes 16 players and members of the support staff, including head coach Rahul Dravid. There are gamers’ wives who’ve travelled to the Caribbean too,” the supply mentioned on Wednesday.

“Normally, in a commercial flight, this expense would’ve been around Rs 2 crore. A business class ticket from Manchester to Port of Spain would be around Rs 2 lakh. A chartered flight is more expensive, but it’s a logical option to take. Most top football teams have a charter now,” he added.
