As per the CoA sources, no decision will be taken in the near future regarding the request to allow wives of cricketers to stay for the entire duration of overseas tours.

Earlier this year, the BCCI had announced that wives and girlfriends of cricketers will be allowed to stay with their partners for a duration of two weeks while the team is touring overseas.
