For more than 10 players of the 21-member Indian squad for the World badminton championship starting in Glasgow from August 21 to 27, it will be an agonizing wait for the next 24 hours as their visas have not been cleared yet.
According to a Badminton Association of India (BAI) official handling the travel plans, the reason for the delay is that these players have applied for the visas late and should have preferred the fast track process given the paucity of time.
