ANUSHKA VIRAT MAINAfter the team's poor performance in Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, the Board of Control Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided not to allow the Indian cricketers to take their wives and girlfriends (WAGs) along for the Test tour to Sri Lanka, starting next month. A top BCCI official has told a leading English daily that the board has decided that players won't be allowed to take their wives on tour. “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 has said to a national daily.
