In what has come as a great development, Team India have finally boarded an Air India flight from Barbados to Delhi. This comes after a four-day delay due to Hurricane Beryl which caused flight cancellations and airport closures.

The Indian team scripted history in the T20 World Cup final against South Africa, beating the Proteas team in a last-over thriller at the Kensington Oval. However, their celebrations were cut short as they were unable to depart Barbados due to the hurricane. Rohit Sharma and his team were stuck at the airport for four days, waiting for the weather conditions to improve.
