India vs England 3rd Test: The third match of the 5-match Test series between the teams of India and England will be played from 15 February. Both the teams will face each other at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot. Many players of Team India have reached Rajkot for this match. At the same time, the England team has also returned from Abu Dhabi after enjoying a break of 10 days. Amidst all this a big news has come out. A star player was stopped at Rajkot airport.
This star player was stopped at the airport itself
The England team returned to India from Abu Dhabi on the evening of 12 February. The England team returned to India via Abu Dhabi-Rajkot chartered flight. This was the first case when an international flight landed directly in Rajkot. But during this time, England team’s star spinner Rehan Ahmed was stopped at Rajkot airport. Actually, Rehan Ahmed had only a single entry visa. In such a situation, Rehan Ahmed had to face trouble for more than 2 hours. After this the England Cricket Board took immediate visa action. After this Rehan Ahmed was given a visa and then he was allowed to go.
Who is spinner Rehan Ahmed?
Rehan Ahmed is of Pakistani origin. But he was born in England only. His father’s name is Naeem, who was a former fast bowling all-rounder of Pakistan. Earlier, Rehan Ahmed had also come to India with the England team for the ODI World Cup 2023. But at that time he had no problem in entering India. At the same time, this time Rehan was the only player among the 31-member English team who did not have a proper visa. Let us tell you that Rehan made his Test debut against Pakistan in Karachi last year.
Shoaib Bashir also faced problems due to visa
This is not the first time in this series. Earlier, Shoaib Bashir also had to face a lot of problems due to visa. Shoaib Bashir did not get a visa for India at the beginning of this series, due to which he returned to England. For this reason he could not be a part of the first test match. After this, Shoaib Bashir got the visa for India and he became a part of the second test.
