Internet Desk: The Indian cricket team players will now can avail business class during their flight of national duty after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has finally given the green signal to the proposal of cricketers where they urged to upgrade their seats to business class from economic class. After that all the cricketers who are in the squad against Sri Lanka have traveled to Kolkata via business class to play the first Test. Skipper Virat Kohli and other cricketers complained to the BCCI that they are facing various problems because of the fans as they always want to take selfies and autographs in the economic class.

“The proposal has been approved in a recently-held meeting of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) in Delhi. The proposal approved in COA meeting regarding business class travel for all cricketers for their domestic flights on and off series:,” BCCI acting president CK Khanna told ANI.

After this decision the Indian cricketers can travel in business class during their national duties. Earlier, the captain and coach could only travel in business class.

In an earlier interview, former India captain Kapil Dev had said,”Now that BCCI is making good money, it should have its own plane. It will save a lot of time and make life easier for Team India. The board can afford it. They should have done it five years ago,” Kapil Dev told TOI. “I would also love to see some cricketers buying their own aircrafts in the days to come. In the US, top golfers have their own planes. I don’t see any reason why our players can’t buy it as it will save them a lot of time. I also believe that if BCCI owns planes, the players will get enough rest between matches. I am sure BCCI can also afford the parking charges.”
