Did England's Shoaib Bashir have to bear the brunt of being 'Pakistani'? A voice was raised from the UK for not getting an Indian visa

Shoaib Bashir's problems show no signs of ending. England's Shoaib Bashir was ruled out of the first Test in Hyderabad as he was unable to obtain a visa for India. Due to visa problems, Bashir had to return to England. The England team had come to India after the training camp in Abu Dhabi but Bashir could not come with them.

England captain Ben Stokes had also expressed his disappointment over Bashir's visa problem. Furthermore, Indian captain Rohit Sharma had said that he hoped the issue of Bashir's visa would be resolved as soon as possible. Now a special voice has been raised about Bashir from the office of English Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.

Rishi Sunak's spokesman said the government expects British citizens to be treated fairly in the Indian visa process. The spokesman was quoted by the BBC as saying: “I cannot speak to the details of this matter. But broadly speaking, we have also raised such issues with the High Commission in the past. We are clear that we expect India to treat British citizens pretty much every time in our visa process.

It continued: “We have previously raised the issues faced by British citizens of Pakistani origin. We have raised questions with the Indian High Commissioner in London about their experiences in applying for visas.”

We tell you that the first match of the five-match Test series between India and England will be played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad from Thursday, January 25.
