Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is said to have taken a decision on Indian skipper Virat Kohli's request to allow WAGs on overseas tours for the full duration.

As per the reports of Mumbai Mirror, BCCI discussed the matter in a meeting between Team India members and the Committee of Administrators (CoA).

Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, MSK Prasad, Rahul Johri and Diana Edulji were among the members to attend the meeting which was stretched for two hours.

The CoA wants BCCI to adopt the policy of Cricket Australia (CA). CA works with the Australian Cricketers Association (the players’ union) and after discussion, they decide a specific period for families. They call it the family period. The period varies with the length of the tours.

India will be playing World Cup next year in England and there are fewer chances that BCCI would allow WAGs during the major ICC event. 

During the last World Cup in 2015, Australia and New Zealand cricket boards were strict on this matter and they did not allowed WAGs till the semi-finals.
