Bhubaneswar:

After abandoning the last two matches of the seven-ODI series against India in the wake of terror attack in Mumbai, the English team on Friday left for Bangalore to catch the connecting flight back to London.

Kevin Pietersen's men, who were trailing 0-5 in the series, refused to continue the series after the terror strikes that resulted in over 100 deaths.

The team boarded the Kingfisher flight number IT 3446 at 1400 hrs and it would take them a couple of hours to reach Bangalore.

In Bangalore, Pietersen and Co will be joined by England's second-string performance squad and both the sides are expected to fly out together.

The team could have left earlier had the flight kept its originally scheduled timing of taking off at 1200 hrs. England is expected to return for the two-Test series next month.
