Mumbai sources stated that with a view to reduce the impact of the wives and girlfriends (wags) of cricketers during foreign tours, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has reportedly decided to impose a 14 day window period for wags to stay with Indian cricketers. Meanwhile in the recent times, the wags of cricketers have drawn the flak of critics and netizens, following the failure of the team in overseas series.
Furthermore according to reports, the BCCI is willing to allow wags to stay with the players for two weeks after the commencement of an overseas tour. Previously, the cricket governing body denied permission to allow players to stay with their wags for the first three Test matches against England. Recently Virat Kohli's poor show in the semi-finals of the ICC World Cup 2015 and India's tour of South Africa have been attributed to the presence of his then girlfriend actress Anushka Sharma with him during the tours.
Moreover on Wednesday, India will face England in
the first of the five match Test series at Edgbaston, Birmingham. Kohli's men
will look to improve their track record on English soil, in the backdrop of
India's 1-4 score against England in 2014.
