The victorious Indian cricket team landed back in Mumbai on Thursday after their three-month long tour of Australia.
The team, which reached Mumbai at 10.20am IST, was flown to Delhi in a special Kingfisher Airlines chartered flight where they will be felicitated at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium.
They will be welcomed at the New Delhi airport and then taken to a city hotel before the civic reception at the Feroz Shah Kotla.
The BCCI on Wednesday said the planned trip from the airport to the Feroz Shah Kotla ground in an open-top bus has been cancelled.
The players will be felicitated by, among others, BCCI chief Sharad Pawar [Images] and Delhi Lieutenant-Governor Tejinder Khanna.
DDCA president Arun Jaitley informed that there would be free entry for the civic reception at the stadium and gates would be opened at 1 pm.
