According to emerging reports, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is planning to airlift the Indian contingent, which is stuck in Barbados amid cyclonic storm Beryl. 

Notably, hurricane Beryl, which intensified into a hazardous category four storm, is expected to have maximum sustained winds of 130 mph. Considering its severity, the Indian players have reportedly been asked to stay indoors. 

Furthermore, all flights from Barbados to India have been cancelled due to the inclement weather conditions. 

In addition to the Indian team, several media persons are also stuck on the island. In such a scenario, the apex body is planning to airlift the Indians from Barbados. 

Beryl is the first hurricane of the 2024 Atlantic season and the first-ever category-four storm recorded in June.
