Dubai - The ICC has scrapped plans to fly up to seven teams from Dubai to the World Twenty20 in West Indies, after restrictions on flights were eased across Europe after a volcanic ash cloud decreased considerably.

The International Cricket Council had made contingency plans for Australia, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, South Africa and Bangladesh to transit through Dubai on Sunday or Monday before being flown to West Indies on a charter flight.

The seven teams along with England will now fly directly to the West Indies as originally scheduled.

Ireland, Zimbabwe and West Indies are already in the Caribbean for the April 30 start of the tournament. New Zealand will fly there via the United States.
