Refusing to sign autographs or pose for pictures, a tired Andrew Flintoff was clearly not in the best of moods at the Indira Gandhi International Airport and rushed his way through the large crowd, which had gathered to catch a glimpse of the players from both India and England, who left for Goa on Saturday.
The two teams will take on each other in the third ODI on April 3 and the England captain, perhaps looking forward to catch up on some sleep, was seen carrying a pillow. He refused to oblige the waiting fans and made a quick exit.
However, the rest of the English squad was not as tired as their captain and was a hit with the locals. Liam Plunkett posed for photographs and his teammates joined in the fun.
Meanwhile, Team India, fresh from the victory at Faridabad on Friday and looking cool in their jeans and shirts, mingled with the home supporters before catching their flight.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni, after complaining of not getting enough support from the fans, was mobbed along with dashing allrounder Irfan Pathan and the duo kept the crowd in good humour as they signed autographs.
Pathan, also making news because of a fan who has come all the way from Jamshedpur to propose marriage to the pace spearhead, got the loudest cheers from the gathered people, who gave a noisy farewell to their heroes.
