The Indian cricket team arrived at the Bandaranaike International Airport in Colombo this afternoon to take part in the tri-nation Compaq Cup one-day international tournament.

The 15-member Indian team arrived in Colombo on board an Air India flight from Bangalore after their scheduled Jet Airways flight got cancelled due to the on-going pilots' strike of the private airline.

Air India operated a special flight from Chennai at 1100hrs on Wednesday to reach Bangalore from where it picked up the Indian cricketers, including skipper Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh and R P Singh, who were busy playing for the Air India team in the BCCI corporate trophy.
