The Australia opener took to his social media to share a meme stating how he is waiting for his Indian visa. The meme is a popular template from the famous television series Narcos where the lead actor is seen waiting for something sitting on a swing. Usman used this meme to depict his feeling of spending hours waiting for his Indian visa to arrive so that he can catch a plane too. He shared the meme captioning, “Me waiting for my Indian Visa like…🤣 #stranded #dontleaveme #standard #anytimenow”. He received his Indian visa some hours later on Wednesday.
