It was surely a close shave for the players and support staff of the Delhi Daredevils. The flight carrying the Delhi team and management had a close call when another plane was found to be on the same runway as their flight. Such situations are said to be among the most critical ones in the aviation fraternity.
The incident occurred when the Indigo flight, carrying the Delhi Daredevils side came in front of another plane on the same runway when it was preparing itself for the take off. The tense incident took place at the Swami Vivekanand airport in Raipur. The flight officials have ordered an inquiry for the same.
Raipur, capital of the state Chhattisgarh, is the adopted home for the Delhi Daredevils. The Delhi based franchise is scheduled to play two games in Raipur. The Daredevils will lock horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad and the Chennai Super Kings in Raipur. Incidentally, Raipur was the home ground for the Delhi Daredevils even in the 2013 edition of the IPL.
Currently, the Daredevils are placed seventh in the points table.
