India opener Shikhar Dhawan's tour of South Africa did not get off to a great start as his wife Aesha and their children were not allowed to board a flight for South Africa from Dubai. Apparently, Dhawan's family was not allowed to board the flight since they could not produce birth certificates for the children.
"1/2 Absolutely unprofessional from @emirates. Was on my way 2 SA with my fam & was told tht my wife and kids can't board the flight from Dubai to SA. Was asked to produce birth certificates & other documents fr my kids at the airport which we obviously didn't have at that moment," Dhawan tweeted about his experience.
"2/2.They are now at Dubai airport waiting for the documents to arrive. Why didn't @emirates notify about such a situation when we were boarding the plane from Mumbai? One of the emirates' employee was being rude for no reason at all," the cricketer further tweeted.
India will play three Tests at Cape Town, Centurion and Johannesburg and six One-day Internationals as well aa three T20 Internationals in the series.
