There is some good news for the Australian team and batter Usman Khawaja. The southpaw's visa issues has been resolved and he has boarded the flight to India. Khawaja was left stranded in Sydney due to visa issues, but Cricket Australia (CA) made arrangements for his travel.
Khawaja can now breath a sigh of relief, as he was waiting for his visa, and the left-handed batter is set to join his teammates in Bengaluru for the training sessions. It was revealed on Wednesday night (February 1), that his visa issues have been resolved and has been cleared to fly out to India.
Australian team have arrived in India for a four-match Test series, which is a part of the WTC cycle. Australia have one foot in the finals, and the pressure is on India to cement their place in the all-important finale, set to take place in June.
After getting the clearance, Khawaja took to his Instagram handle, and posted a picture inside the flight, with a caption "India, meh arah hoon."
The 36-year-old has been one of the best batters in the world at the moment. He has piled on truckloads of runs, and will be a key player once again as Australia look to clinch the Test series in India after 19 years.
He was a pivotal member of the Aussie side that won an ODI series in India four years ago. He slammed 383 runs, which included two centuries in five matches.
The Test series begins with the first Test taking place in Nagpur on February 9.
