Deepak Chahar, an Indian bowler, may not be fully prepared for the opening ODI of the series against Bangladesh on Sunday after having “a horrible experience” on Malaysia Airlines. Washington Sundar, Rishabh Pant, Shardul Thakur, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, and Chahar were all travelling to Dhaka from Christchurch, New Zealand via Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Chahar reported that despite travelling in business class, his flight was changed without warning and that no food was provided. The right-arm pacer, who has travelled to Mirpur to join the Indian team, stated that with less than 24 hours until the match on Sunday, he is still awaiting his luggage.
Deepak Chahar’s tweet read, “Had a worse experience travelling with Malaysia airlines @MAS .first they changed our flight without telling us and no food in Business class. Now we have been waiting for our luggage from last 24hours. Imagine we have a game to play tomorrow.”
