Three days after being stranded in Hurricane Beryl-hit Barbados, Team India players have finally arrived home with the T20 World Cup trophy.

Team India departed from Barbados on Wednesday afternoon on a special Air India chartered flight arranged by the Board of Control for Cricket In India (BCCI). Air India renamed special charter flight ‘AIC24WC’ to commemorate the Men in Blue’s victory at the T20 World Cup 2024.

The BCCI took to their X handle (formerly Twitter) and shared a video of Indian players having look at the T20 World Cup Trophy, with tweet, “It’s Home.”

After T20 World Cup 2024 triumph by South Africa in the Final, Team India players, their families and support staff were not allowed to leave their hotel rooms as Hurricane Beryl hit Barbados for three days. Due to heavy winds and rains caused by Hurricane, the Barbados airport operations were shut down as none of the flights could take off or land.

After unexpected delays, Indian players along with Indian media managed to leave Barbados on a special chartered flight, ensuring safety returns to India.
