New Delhi, Jun 11: After sorting out visa issues which delayed his departure, Parvinder Awana finally left for the Carribean on Sunday to join the India A squad.
The Delhi seamer replaced RP Singh in the squad in the last week of May, after the left-arm pacer was ruled out of the tour due to a knee injury.
After the news broke, Awana was made to wait for a few days in order to complete the formalities.
"It took around 10 days to get his visa. But this is how it goes," a leading Indian daily quoted a source as saying on Monday.
Awana who hails from Araula village, on the outskirts of Noida, has been very impressive throughout the last season and in the fifth edition of Indian Premier League.
Playing for Delhi in the Ranji Trophy, Awana was the joint sixth highest wicket-taker in the recently concluded 2011-12 season. He took 28 wickets in six games. Overall he is second highest wicket-taker in domestic season of 2011-12 with 57 wickets. He has so far played 32 first class games and has 110 wickets. He made his debut in 2007.
