T20 World Cup: 2 Indian bowlers will not be able to go to Australia, did not get visas

New Delhi: Umran Malik and Kuldeep Sen, who caught everyone's attention with their pace during the Indian Premier League (IPL), will not be able to go to Australia. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had selected both of them as Team India's net bowlers for the T20 World Cup, but they are delayed in getting visas and will no longer be sent. The ICC rule came in the way of both players going to Australia.

Apart from Jammu and Kashmir's Umran Malik and Madhya Pradesh's Kuldeep Sen, Chetan Sakariya and Mukesh Choudhary, who was scheduled to travel to Australia with a 15-member India squad, were also picked as net bowlers. Sakariya and Chaudhary already had visas to Australia, as they were part of an exchange programme. The BCCI later applied for visas for the other two fast bowlers. It is learnt that Malik and Sen are yet to get their visas and now with Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj and Shardul Thakur leaving, the BCCI has decided not to send them to Australia. Malik and Sen are not part of the official 15-member squad. Apart from this, the names of both are not on standby.

According to the ICC's prescribed norms, the visas of the players selected for the team and the players included in the reserve list are available quickly, but this is not the case with net bowlers. Apart from the 15 players selected for the T20 World Cup, Shami, Shreyas Iyer, Ravi Bishnoi and Deepak Chahar were included in the list of standby players. Chahar has been ruled out due to injury.
