The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will allow wives and family members of the Indian cricket team players and support staff to stay for a 15-day period during the ICC World Cup 2019, according to a report in Times of India. The report also states that it can only happen after three weeks into the tournament.
According to the report, the BCCI has already approved the ruling and the 21-day rule means that the WAGs wouldn’t be able to attend the India-Pakistan game which will take place on June 16.
“If Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma wants to stay till the last phase of the tournament, she would have to plan it accordingly so that the 15-day window falls into the knockout games,” a source told Times of India.
The report further states that the guidelines were designed after the authorities faced a logistical nightmare during the tour of Australia where the contingent was close to 37 members including the team and their families.
India start their ICC World Cup 2019 campaign against South Africa on June 5 in Southampton.
