Why Team India is stuck in Barbados?

The answer is Hurricane Beryl. As per YouTuber & journalist Vimal Kumar who is also in West Indies, Team India was expected to fly out to New York from Barbados on Monday night. From New York, the Men In Blue were expected to board a connecting flight to India via Dubai. Due to the reserve day on June 30, Team India did not fly to New Delhi and remained in Barbados. However, West Indies announced its season's first Hurricane. As a precautionary measure due to Hurricane Beryl, Barbados Airport was closed, citizens were advised o stay indoors and no public transport were allowed to function. This left the T20 World Cup 2024 champions stuck in their hotel. 

The YouTuber further revealed that after Team India won the T20 World Cup, BCCI Secretary arranged a chartered flight to carry the Men In Blue direct to New Delhi from Barbados. However, due to Hurricane Beryl, the charcatered flight was allowed to fly. Hence, the chartered flight which was expected to come from New York remained grounded. 

Now, it is expected that after the Hurricane Beryl passes West Indies, Team India will board the chartered flight til Tuesday evening or night. Therefore, it can be said that Team India will land in New Delhi on Wednesday morning. Thereafter, the Men In Blue will stay in a hotel for refreshments and then the T20 World Champions 2024 will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi. 

It is expected that a victory lap will also take place, however, there is no confirmation over it as of now.
