“We are doing everything possible to overcome the airline logistical challenges and we are extremely grateful to our commercial partner Emirates for putting forward a charter-flight option,” ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat said in a statement on Tuesday.

“The Board heard that arrangements were being made so that seven of the remaining eight affected men’s teams — New Zealand are travelling via the United States — could be airlifted direct to the West Indies from Dubai with the aid of ICC partners Emirates,” the ICC said.
