Hurricane Beryl made its downfall in Barbados on June 30, shutting all the airports and modes of transport. Therefore, the Indian Cricket team and the journalists were stranded in Barbados and had to spend time in a hotel room. After that, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary, Jay Shah, came to the rescue and sent a special flight to fly them to Delhi. The journalists will travel with the cricketers on the same flight back to Delhi. 

"Special thanks to @JayShah for taking the initiative and ‘rescuing’ stranded Indian media in Barbados. As a gesture, the 20-odd media contingent have been offered to fly out with the Indian team on the special chartered flight from Barbados to Delhi! The special flight will take off In a few hours and land in Delhi around 4-5 Thursday morning,” wrote Gupta on his X account," tweeted Vikrant Gupta.
