BCCI permits Team India, staff to travel with families on England tour
BCCI has given permission to Team India players and its support staff to travel with their families on the upcoming tour of England.
The Indian team departs for England in the wee hours of June 3 for a three-and-a-half-month-long tour that comprises World Test Championship final against New Zealand next month as well as five Test matches against England in August-September.
The men’s team will travel with India women’s team on a charter flight but it is unlikely that women players will travel with families mainly because the tour is short. The expenses of the spouse or partner’s travel as well as the stay is to be borne by the player or spouse, who will have to pay for an extra person’s charges.
