Australia opener Usman Khawaja was granted the visa late on Wednesday to travel to India for the Test series after the Pakistan-born cricketer was forced to miss the morning flight due to delay in the issuance of travel documents.

The passport and visa were handed over to a Cricket Australia (CA) representative late on Wednesday night in Melbourne, said a report in ‘Sydney Morning Herald’.

The Australian Test squad and support staff led by Pat Cummins had left for the team’s training base in Bengaluru on two separate flights on Tuesday and Wednesday, but Khawaja couldn’t board either as his passport and visa had not been delivered by the Indian high commission.

Khawaja will now board the flight from Melbourne to Bengaluru on Thursday and could attend the team’s training session on Friday, said the report.
