NEW DELHI: Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will not allow Indian cricketers to take their wives and girl friends (WAGs) along during the Sri Lanka tour next month.

“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 their wives will not be allowed on tour,’’ a top BCCI official was quoted as saying by the Indian Express newspaper.

Also team India director Ravi Shastri will not join the team till the eve of the 1st Test on August 2012.
