[RxPG] New Delhi, March 29 - The vanquished Indian cricket team, which crashed out in the first round of the World Cup, returned home quietly in batches Thursday morning and headed straight to their homes under police escort.

The grim faced players took different flights to reach their home cities or the nearest airport in the darkness of the night. They had arrived in London from the West Indies Wednesday morning and taken connecting flights to India.

While Virender Sehwag and M.S. Dhoni arrived at the Indira Gandhi International airport here, captain Rahul Dravid, Anil Kumble, Dinesh Karthick and Robin Uthappa flew to Bangalore.

In Mumbai, Indian cricket board secretary Niranjan Shah and its chief administrative officer Ratnakar Shetty received Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Ajit Agarkar, Zaheer Khan and coach Greg Chappell.

Ganguly took a connecting flight to Kolkata from the Mumbai domestic airport.

No players or official spoke to the media at the airports, where there was tight security.

India lost two of three matches in their group to crash out of the World Cup in the first round itself.

The lone win came against first timers and minnows Bermuda. India's defeats came against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

The next main tournament for most players will be the Twenty20 national championship matches starting April 3 at various venues.
