Team India and Australia survive a mid air bird hit and finally arrive in Mumbai safe and sound on Monday.

They arrived in Mumbai alongwith their Australian opponents, but not without incident.

A Jet Airways flight carrying them had made an emergency landing in Nagpur on Monday morning after it was hit by a bird.

Both the teams were heading to Mumbai where the seventh and last one-day match of the Future Cup would be played on Wednesday.

Indian skipper MS Dhoni, Rahul Dravid, Harbhajan Singh, Robin Uthappa, Dinesh Kartik, Rohit Sharma and RP Singh were on board the flight.

The Indian support staff, minus team manager Lalchand Rajput were also on the same flight, as was the entire Australian cricket team.
