Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

A sombre looking Singh left the Feroz Shah Kotla separately while the other members of the squad left by team bus after their 41-run loss to Bengal in the Vijay Hazare Trophy semi-finals.

Dhoni, who was the best performer for his side scoring 70 off 62 balls with four sixes was understandably upset after his team bowled poorly and also lost wickets in a heap after he was dismissed. Jharkhand's last six wickets fell for 38 runs.

"Yes, left in a private car separately after the match. The rest of the boys left by team bus," a DDCA official said.

It is not new for star players to commute separately from the team and a lot of players do that.

However this season, has been travelling with the team and also staying at the team hotel in places like

in fact travelled to by train during the group league phase of Vijay Hazare Trophy.

To make matters worse, a player's kitbag got misplaced as porter put his stuff on the Bengal team bus.

"Yes, the DDCA staff by mistake put a player's kitbag in Bengal team bus. The kit is in Bengal hotel and will be delivered back to the concerned player," DDCA media manager Salil Seth said.
