All New Zealand players, staff, officials and commentators, who were part of the league, have now arrived back in their home country.

McCullum, Fleming, fellow IPL coach Kyle Mills, Black Caps fast bowler Lockie Ferguson, commentators Simon Doull and Scott Styris, and umpire Chris Gaffaney landed at the Auckland Airport on Sunday evening.
