As many as 6 members of the India women’s cricket team are yet to get the UK visas, less than 48 hours ahead of their departure for the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. The Board of Cricket for Cricket in India (BCCI) is in touch with the Indian Olympic Association over the issue.

The visas for 3 players and as many members of the support staff are yet to arrive but the IOA is confident they will come through by Saturday, July 23, according to the Press Trust of India.

Notably, the members of the Indian women’s cricket team, which will be led by Harmanpreet Kaur, have been training at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru.

Women’s cricket is making its debut at the Commonwealth Games.

“Few of the visas came in today but they are still six left for processing including three players and three players support staff,” an IOA source told the news agency.

“The remaining should come by tomorrow. We have very little over control over the process anyway. There is summer rush and UK visas are taking time.”

The kits have not reached Bengaluru as well but the IOA official confirmed that they will be delivered by Saturday.

The BCCI had announced a 15-member squad for the Games, beginning July 28. India open their campaign against mighty Australia on July 29 before facing Pakistan on July 31. An eight member support staff was also named with three reserve players.

Meanwhile, India’s Chef de Mission Rajesh Bhandari finally got his visa on Friday and he will soon be flying out to join his colleagues in Birmingham.

The IOA has named three Deputy Chef de Mission for the Games. Anil Dhupar and Maninder Singh, who too had to wait for his visa till the last minute, took the flight on Friday morning.

Deputy Chef de Mission Prashant Kushwaha is the one left waiting for his visa.
