India captain Virat Kohli had earlier sought BCCI permission to allow WAGs to be with the players any time during the course of the World Cup. But now he too is in agreement with the new policy laid down for the World Cup.

Meanwhile, the PCB has rejected a suggestion from national team captain Sarfaraz Ahmed to have players’ families travelling with them during the World Cup in England.

“Yes there was a suggestion from the captain and players that they should be allowed to have their wives and children with them in England during the World Cup but the board has not allowed this,” an official source in the board said.

He said instead permission had been granted to the players that their wives and children could be with them during the ODI series against England but they would have to return  before the World Cup.
