Mumbai: The Committee of Administrators (CoA) on Wednesday decided that wives and girlfriends (WAGs) of Indian cricketers will be able to join them after the first 10 days of an overseas tour.
India captain Virat Kohli, who is married to Bollywood star Anushka Sharma, had recently requested the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to extend the WAGs’ stay during a foreign tour.
According to a report in Times of India, after the first 10 days, WAGs will be able to be with their husbands till the conclusion of the tour.
Kohli’s men will be travelling to Australia in November, where they will play three T20Is, four Tests and three ODIs.
The report goes onto add that the presence of WAGs during long tours will only help the cricketers, as they act like a support system.
After clinching the Test series 2-0 against West Indies, the Men in Blue will now switch to the limited-overs formats where they will play five ODIs and three T20Is against the Caribbean side.
