Six Indian cricketers and five members of the support staff - including Greg Chappell, the coach - currently in Zimbabwe are without passports after their documents were either stolen or lost. The team manager Amitabh Chowdhary, whose own passport is missing as well, has said that the necessary procedures were under way and that fresh passports would be issued shortly.
"We lost the passports on Wednesday while I was watching the match between New Zealand and Zimbabwe at the ground on Wednesday," Chowdhary was quoted as saying by the Press Trust of India. "Follow-up action has been taken, forms have been filled and we expect the new passports to be issued by this evening."
Suresh Raina, Rudra Pratap Singh, Murali Kartik, Harbhajan Singh Ashish Nehra and Mohammad Kaif were the six players whose passports went missing, while the same fate also befell Greg King, the trainer, the physiotherapist John Gloster and Ian Frazer, the bio-mechanist. Of these, Raina, RP Singh and Kartik were selected only for the one-day squad, and will return home on Thursday, 8 September 2005.
