Virat Kohli wants BCCI to change rule: Let wives stay for full overseas tours

Recommended Posts

Quote

 

India captain Virat Kohli has requested the cricket board to allow wives of players to accompany the team for the full duration of overseas tours. The current policy restricts the stay of wives of players and support staff to just two weeks.

It is learnt that Kohli first broached the issue with a top BCCI official who in turn conveyed the team’s request to the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) headed by Vinod Rai and Diana Edulji.

Sources said that the CoA has now asked Indian team manager Sunil Subramaniam to make a formal request to change the rule but that they would not be taking a decision any time soon. Since this will require a shift in the BCCI’s stance, the CoA is expected to postpone the decision to a time when the new BCCI body will be in place.

“The request was made a few weeks back but as it is a BCCI policy decision, the manager will have to submit a formal request first. Anushka has been travelling with Kohli overseas, however, Kohli now wants the old rule to be abolished and a new policy should come up where wives should be allowed to travel with the Indian team,” a source said.

 

The cricketing world for long has been divided on allowing wives and girlfriends on long tours. At present, most countries have restricted family time. In 2007, after an Ashes disaster, the England and Wales Cricket Board asked an independent sports administrator to determine the reasons for the 5-0 whitewash against Australia. The report recommended a limit on the time wives and girlfriends should be allowed on tour. This did not go well with players and England’s star batsman Kevin Pietersenhad called the suggestion a “load of nonsense”.

There is too much interference by ICC

 

 this rules of spouse or even the water breaks rule is totally unnecessary by them 

ICC doesn't restrict spouses. It's BCCI who does that.

 

Next Kohli will ask for wives during team meetings too.

I don't get it unlike others his wife has a successful career. Like Virat even she at best has 5-6 more years to be at the top of ladder. I doubt she has the time to spend 3 months in australia or for that matter 3 days at rajkot. 

 

I think being captain request could have been made by him on teams behalf.

He's just trying to have some peace by allowing the preferences his wife is getting so far by sharing it with his teammate.
As if Rohit and Ritika will give it up.

I think he does not want  a fixed time period as it does not suit his wife's schedule. By saying wives should be allowed on tours he wants that his wife can come and join him whenever it suits her  without the media going crazy about why her ? Where are the others? Like it happened last time when she came and attended the high commision visit after all the other wives had left or not yet arrived.

Reacting to captain Virat Kohli’s request to allow wives of cricketers to stay for the entire duration of India's overseas tours, sources in the Supreme-Court appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) on Sunday told ANI that the committee is not going to take any immediate decision on the request.

Why are people making such a huge deal out of this? This guy plays the most number of matches in a year for our country and it's completely fine if he needs his wife by his side. He doesn't need to be a people pleaser. Stop making a huge deal out of irrelevant ****.

What about the ones with kids?

Let kids stay on tour too.Shikar's son is always all over the place ...interviews, team photos. Imagine if everyone's children were like that with over indulgent parents.

 

Then they will want a nanny ....then Creche and tutors too.

 

Does he realise we have been losing overseas ?

Pehle kuch jeet lein ,phir biwiyon waali farmaish pesh karein.

This guy is so whipped, he doesn't even use his brain  .

 

If he was allowed to use his brain, he would have asked for 2 weeks stay with wife on tour at any time suitable to the couple and the team.

Good suggestion by Kohli. However If it was accepted by BCCI, don't know whether Shastri would request from BCCI to keep couple of whiskey bottle until the overseas stay is over. :cantstop:

I think he carries them with him always..

I don't like this by Kohli. It's okay if they visit for some days, but these players are working. They need to perform. 

 

I think the trouble is that we have had an unbalanced schedule the last few years with all our home series over a few years and then going exclusively abroad for a few years .

 

We need to balanced it out with home and away series.

What do you think KL and Pandya do when they go on overseas tour?
Have sex with with Random girls and possibly men.
As far as I know , Hardik is fond of throwing money at hookers.
Recently on sa tour, he went to a strip club and spent 50K local money.

After Virat Kohli’s request on the stay of WAGs, BCCI makes a decision

After Indian captain Virat Kohli put in a request to the BCCI to extend the stay of WAGs during overseas series, there has been a decision made by the board.

The matter was discussed in the much-awaited meeting between Team India members and the Committee of Administrators (CoA).

According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, the CoA wants to follow the policy which is in place by the Cricket Australia. As per this policy, the CA works with the Australian Cricketers Association (the players’ union) and then chalks out a certain period for the families, which is called the family period. This aforementioned period keeps varying with different series and is dependent on the length of the tours.

However, with the 2019 World Cup approaching, the BCCI is in no mood to change the set precedent as far as World Cups are concerned. During the 2015 World Cup in Australia/New Zealand, the WAGs were not allowed till the semi-finals. This same policy will be employed during the next World Cup in England.

 

Speaking on the same issue, Gautam Gambhir said that family presence on tour works for some players but it may not for another.

“The player opinion varies. Only an individual can say because the individual has to play a Test match. Some want family to be there for the whole tour while others want little family time and they try to concentrate (on cricket),” Gambhir told India Today.

Does an average Indian takes his wife to work everyday? If yes then Virat should have the same luxury.
Average Indian doesn't travel all over the world for work either. So I am not sure it's the right comparison.
