Bangladesh opener Saif Hassan, who was stuck in Kolkata because his Indian visa had expired, was expected to reach Dhaka yesterday night along with a few other teammates.
Saif’s six-month visa had expired on November 24, the date the second Test between Bangladesh and India ended.
He had gone to the airport with the rest of his teammates the following day and it was then that it was discovered that his visa had expired the previous day. Efforts were being made from the Bangladesh High Commission in India to extend his visa so that he could return to Bangladesh.
The issue was then remedied and the opener was supposed to return to the country yesterday night alongside Liton Das, Mehedi Hasan Miraz and Taijul Islam. However, Imrul Kayes and Mushfiqur Rahim stayed back in India and will return a few days later.
