“The BCCI spent Rs 3.5 crore on the chartered flight which took Team India from Manchester on Tuesday afternoon to Port of Spain (the capital of Trinidad and Tobago) by 11.30 pm IST. It’s difficult to book so many tickets on a commercial flight- the Indian contingent includes 16 players and support staff members, including head coach Rahul Dravid. Normally, this expense would’ve been around Rs 2 crore in a commercial flight. A chartered flight is more expensive, but it’s a logical option. “

The official told the Times of India

The decision made sense to the officials because most of England’s elite football clubs have chartered planes for domestic and international travel.
