Usman Khawaja, an Australian opener, was forced to miss the morning flight owing to a delay in the issue of travel paperwork. He was eventually given the visa late on Wednesday to visit India for the Test series.

According to a report in the “Sydney Morning Herald,” the passport and visa were given to a Cricket Australia (CA) official late on Wednesday night in Melbourne.

Khawaja was unable to board either aircraft because the Indian high commission had not yet sent his passport and visa, which prevented him from traveling with the Australian Test team and support staff, which was headed by Pat Cummins, to the team’s training camp in Bengaluru on Tuesday and Wednesday. According to the source, Khawaja will now travel from Melbourne to Bengaluru on Thursday and perhaps join the team’s practice on Friday.

The cricketer vented his fury on social media on Wednesday afternoon after learning that his immigration paperwork had not been finalized.

Khawaja said on Instagram, “Me waiting for my Indian visa like… #stranded #dontleaveme #standard #anytimenow.”

The article also said that Khawaja was the only member of the touring party whose application was not completed in time and that CA had started the process for the granting of visas in early January. According to a representative for the Indian High Commission stated in the article, the situation is being looked into.

The batsman, who is Pakistani-born, has represented Australia in 56 Tests, 40 ODIs, and nine T20 Internationals. The 36-year-old participated in the 2016 season of the Indian Premier League as well. He received the Shane Warne Award, which honors Australia’s Test Player of the Year, on Monday.

Before traveling to Nagpur for the first Test, which begins on February 9, Australia will have a four-day training camp on the outskirts of Bengaluru. Ahmedabad, Dharamsala, and Delhi are the additional locations.

Both groups have a chance to go to the World Test Championship final. Before the important series, Australia decided against playing a tour game in India because they thought the playing surfaces would be completely different from those of the four Test matches.
