Pacers have a huge workload during the ongoing T20 World Cup

Travelling has been a huge burden for most teams in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022 with matches held all across the huge Australian continent. Teams have taken domestic flights up to five hours duration of travel between different venues.

The business class seats on domestic flights are generally allotted by International Cricket Council (ICC) for captain, head coach and senior members of the team. In Men in Blue’s case, the business class seats are generally reserved for captain Rohit Sharma, senior player Virat Kohli and head coach Rahul Dravid.
