The team will fly right after the final clash tonight. The squad will leave for Australia's Sydney via Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The Men in Green will then be flown to Auckland in New Zealand and then to Christchurch where they will be facing Bangladesh and the Kiwis in a tri-series, which will begin on October 7.
