Team India to travel in business class on flights
Team India will now fly in business class even on shorter tours as BCCI will upgrade their domestic air travel from economy to business class after the players including captain Virat Kohli took up the issue of lack of privacy and security with the management. The report further said that the cricketers complained that there is no privacy from co-passengers in regular economy class. Tall players like Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul, Mohammad Shami and Ishant Sharma struggle for leg-space in the second class and the team often needs to wait for a long time for their luggage. A few players have also complained of being mobbed inside the airports. BCCI’s acting president CK Khanna had also written a letter to address the issue to his colleagues to speed up the process.
