India Tour Of England: India’s tour of West Indies is starting from 22nd July. Team India has reached West Indies for this tour. Team India used a chartered flight to come from England to West Indies. Amidst all this, the cost of chartered plane remains a matter of discussion at this time. Team India has spent crores for this journey. The reason why BCCI has spent so much has also come to the fore.
So many crores spent on chartered flight
Recently Team India’s tour of England has been completed. Team India has reached West Indies directly from Manchester, England. The expenses incurred on this flight have now been disclosed. You will be surprised to know that BCCI has spent Rs 3.5 crore to bring Team India from England to West Indies. This chartered flight has brought players from Manchester to Port of Spain. Team India has to play three matches ODI and 5 matches T20 series on this tour.
Because of this, this big decision was taken
When the matter of traveling in a chartered flight of Team India came to the fore, it was believed that this decision has been taken in view of Corona, but the real reason behind this is something else. According to the Times of India news, a source said, ‘BCCI spent Rs 3.5 crore on the chartered flight, which took the team from Manchester to Port of Spain till 11.30 pm. Corona was not the reason for booking the chartered flight for the team. It is difficult to book so many tickets in a commercial flight. The Indian team consists of 16 players and members of the support staff, including coach Rahul Dravid. There are also wives of players who have traveled to West Indies.
This journey could have been done in less cost
Talking on this issue, the source further said, ‘Normally this expenditure would have been around Rs 2 crore in a commercial flight. A business class ticket from Manchester to Port of Spain will cost around Rs 2 lakh. A chartered flight is more expensive, but it is a logical option. Big football teams now have a charter of their own.
