BCCI mulling its own private jet?

Mumbai: Is the Indian cricket board buying its own Boeing 747? A suggestion has been made by one of its members to buy one so the national and touring teams can be carried easily between venues.
The unprecedented suggestion was made when the management of the England team, now playing in India, made noises seeking direct flights between venues during the Test series. 'We all had gone to Mohali (for the second Test March 9-13) after the England team sought direct flights between Nagpur and Mohali when a colleague said that all these transport problems could be overcome and for that the board should buy a Boeing,' a top Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) official told IANS.
'He suggested if the board has its own aeroplane, the Indian team and visiting teams could be flown from one venue to the other without depending on the availability of seats in other airlines,' he said.
