Just under two days from the departure for the Birmingham Commonwealth Games, six players of the Indian women’s cricket team still need to obtain visas.
At the Commonwealth Games, women’s cricket is being played for the first time. The Indian team is currently in Bengaluru for practise and is due to fly to Birmingham on Sunday.
Regarding this matter, the BCCI is in contact with the Indian Olympic Association.
Six visas remain to be processed, including those for three players and the support personnel of three players, according to an IOA source who spoke to PTI.
“The remainder ought to show up by tomorrow. In any case, we don’t really have much control over the process. The summer season is busy, and obtaining a UK visa takes time.
Even though the kits haven’t arrived in Bengaluru either, an IOA representative promised that they would be provided by Saturday.
A 15-member squad for the Games, which begin on July 28, had been announced by the BCCI. India’s campaign gets underway on July 29 against the powerful Australia, and on July 31 they take on Pakistan. Additionally, a support crew of eight people with three backup players was announced.
