Even though team India has been knocked out after a shocking defeat against New Zealand in semifinal, the World Cup is yet to leave the Men-in-Blue as Virat Kohli and Co are forced to stay in England till the final of ICC World Cup 2019 . India’s sudden exit has not only left billions of fans heart-broken but it has also given rise to a piercing headache to the Indian Cricket Team’s logistic manager.
The BCCI has reportedly failed to arrange return tickets for the Indian side on time, leaving Kohli, Dhoni and others including the coaches and support staff stranded in Manchester till Sunday.
The logistic planning went for a toss after India’s exit from the World Cup on Wednesday. The BCCI tried its best but the tickets could not be arranged on time and as per reports it will only arranged on or after Sunday, July 14 – the day England and New Zealand will play in the World Cup final at Lord’s.
The Indian cricketers, however, left their team hotel at Manchester on Thursday but is expected to remain in the city till Sunday.
“Most of the boys will be in Manchester till July 14 and leave from there. Tickets are being booked after the campaign came to an end yesterday,” a senior BCCI official told Cricket Age.
