Cuttack: Most of the players in  India's 15-member squad, including Sachin Tendulkar, on Thursday headed back to their homes after the series against England was prematurely scrapped in the wake of the Mumbai terror strikes.

Tendulkar along with Zaheer Khan, Rohit Sharma, Munaf Patel, Irfan and Yusuf Pathan boarded a Mumbai flight at 6 pm, around 45 minutes after Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir left for Delhi at 5.15 pm.

Cricket bowled out by terror attacks

Bowling and fielding coaches Venkatesh Prasad and Robin Singh also left the city.

The Indian team was next scheduled to play its sixth match in Guwahati on Saturday while the seventh and final ODI was slated to be played in Delhi under floodlights. India were leading the series 5-0.
