Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan was left upset after his family was forced to stay back in the United Arab Emirates for documentation issues with the airlines.

It was reported that the Indian opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan was traveling to South Africa as India will play three Tests, six One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and three Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is).

Following the incident, Shikhar Dhawan moved to Twitter and slammed Emirates Airlines for not allowing his wife and son to board the flight from Dubai to South Africa.

Indian cricketer has alleged that Emirates Airlines didn’t notify him to carry birth certificates or identification proofs of his wife and their kids.

He posted: “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”.

In another tweet, he wrote: “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”.
