The 28-member Kerala Strikers team, en route to Hyderabad to participate in the ongoing Celebrity Cricket League, were on Friday deplaned from an Indigo Airlines Kochi-Hyderabad flight for alleged misbehaviour with the crew.

Following a complaint of misbehaviour by the flight crew, the pilot ordered that the team be deplaned, only after which the flight would take off, Kochi airport sources said 

The 6E314 flight to Hyderabad was to take off at 1 pm.

Following the incident, all the team members, including actor Bineesh Kodiyeri, were deplaned.

The team was on its way to Hyderabad to participate in a Celebrity cricket league match.

Airport sources said they had not received any complaint so far and once they get it, it would be handed over to local police.
