The Indian team was recently spotted boarding a plane back to India after their T20 World Cup 2024 title win in Barbados. The Men in Blue remained unbeaten throughout the tournament and defeated South Africa in the summit clash by seven runs to get their hands on their second World Cup title.

In a clip that has been going viral all over social media, several Indian stars were captured boarding the flight that will take them back home. It is worth noting that India’s return home from Barbados was delayed as the charter flight, which was supposed to come from New Jersey, got late in reaching Barbados.

The hurricane threat in Barbados forced the government to shut down the airport while all flights were cancelled. Recently, the BCCI’s vice president, Rajeev Shukla, took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to share that the players will fly to Delhi on Wednesday evening.

“Thank God team India is flying back from Barbados this evening to Delhi. Will be reaching tomorrow evening. They were stuck for three days there because of massive hurricane. @BCCI has made all arrangements for safe flight of players back home. BCCI secretary @JayShah himself is monitoring the whole situation,” Rajeev Shukla tweeted.

An Air India special charter flight named AIC24WC—Air India Champions 24 World Cup—is all set to bring the Indian team back home, its support staff, the players’ families, some board officials, and Indian media, who have been stranded here for the past three days due to hurricane Beryl.

More details and live tracking of the flight in which team India is travelling back home can be found on flightradar24.com.

India return triumphant following WC win

The Men in Blue put forth an exceptional performance in the T20 World Cup 2024 final against South Africa. Batting first, India posted a total of 176 runs in the first innings of the game. It was all thanks to the knocks of Virat Kohli and Axar Patel, who propelled India towards a fighting total.

As the second innings came around, India were pushed back by the masterful knock of Heinrich Klassen. However, the heroics of Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, and Arshdeep Singh helped the Men in Blue register a brilliant win and clinch the title.
