With hardly any time left for the World Cup to begin. BCCI has accepted the demand of players wives to accompany their husbands to the World Cup.
With the World Cup challenges, the wives and close family members help the players manage the mental pressures. Team captain Virat Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma visits the field for most of the matches in the country and abroad.
The team had been demanding the same from BCCI since last year, as last year the team was on foreign tours for longer durations and their wives and close family members were not allowed to accompany them.
However, taking the challenges and pressures in account, the board has accepted the request with certain conditions. As per the new rule, any foreign tour that is above 45 days, the players may call their close family members after two weeks of commencement of the tour.
