Indian cricket governing body BCCI will not allow wives and girlfriends (WAGS) of cricketers on India’s tour of Sri Lanka.

Since the tour of Bangladesh majority of Indian cricketers were out of cricket as they were rested to recover from fatigue.

Now, according to Indian Express report BCCI will urge players to back old protocol of International tour. WAGS are not allowed to tour with their boy-friends and husbands.

“Most of the players on tour are just coming off a month-long break where they had enough time to spend with their families. And we’ve decided that their wives will not be allowed on tour,” a top BCCI official told the national daily confirming the board’s decision.

The Indian team lead by Virat Kohli scheduled to three match Test series against Sri Lanka. The tour will start with a warm up match, but the team will start their tour matches without head coach, and even without team director Ravi Shastri, who is currently busy with media commitment with Sky Sports for the ongoing Ashes series in England.

Shastri will the team on August 9, three days before the first Test at Galle.

BCCI confirmed that it will not force Shastri to visit with the team from the beginning as he has a contract with Sky Sports as post match analyst. He is expected to join the team on 9th August. 

Other support staffs – bowling coach Bharat Arun, batting coach Sanjay Bngar and fielding coach R. Sridhar will manage the team in Ravi’s absence.  

Meanwhile, the replacement of Duncan Fletcher is yet to be found. Since the World Cup 2015, the post of head coach is vacant. Indian had played the Bangladesh without head coach, and now for the second time they will visit Sri Lanka.

The newly appointed cricket advisory committee that features Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Sourav Ganguly will be soon takes call on new coach.
