    https://m.timesofindia.com/home/sunday-times/saying-metoo-changed-their-lives/articleshow/66198463.cms Good read to understand why people say me too.
  9. Anyone who thinks like that will have a problem with the challenges of international cricket. He has had fair number of opportunities. Needs to pull up his socks and show he has it in him.
  10. Guys like Prithvi and Pant will make watching tests exciting again.

    Finally some sense setting in... media frenzy is never about justice Wtf!! Totally support people speaking up about abuse suffered by them in the media. I never supported anonymous complaints or third party endorsement of complaints. Most people who have been named seem to have had a predator reputation in their circle already . Now the world is talking about it.

    People like chinmayi and sapna Bhagnani should let people do their own talking instead of becoming mob pointers. This will just dilute the credibility of the movement. People have to realize that anonymous complaints do not hold water. One will have to be brave enough to say it with their names and details. Otherwise make peace with it . Don't dilute the movement with your over enthusiasm . It should not turn into a witch hunt or glory hunt .

Updated: Oct 12, 2018 13:58:36 By HT Correspondent File picture of Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma (Hindustan Times via Getty Images) 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.
