Australia Player Khawaja misses flight to India after visa delay

Date:

Australia opener Usman Khawaja missed the team’s flight to India on Wednesday for their four-Test tour due to a visa delay, Cricket Australia (CA) said.

A Cricket Australia spokesman said the Pakistan-born batter was the only player in Australia’s squad not to board because his visa had not arrived in time.

Khawaja posted a popular meme on social media of a man sitting on a garden chair staring into space, with the caption: “Me waiting for my Indian Visa like… #stranded #dontleaveme #standard #anytimenow.”

Cricket Australia expect the visa to arrive later on Wednesday and said Khawaja had been booked on a flight out on Thursday.

Some team support staff are also flying out on Thursday.

India host the first of four Tests in Nagpur from February 9.
