The defending champions, earlier this week, took to social media to reveal that they had booked separate charter flights to transport their players to different parts of the world.
Apart from booking charter flights, the franchise also said that they have made arrangements for their Australian players, who will be spending their 14-day in quarantine in Maldives due their government's ban on passenger flights from India until May 15.
Mumbai Indians, in their earlier post also informed that all the Indian players had also left for their homes on a separate charter flight.
The BCCI and the IPL Governing Council on Tuesday, after an emergency meeting, unanimously decided to indefinitely postpone the lucrative league after several COVID-19 cases emerged in bio-bubbles of different franchises.
