Discord over WAGs travel a first: BCCI

New Delhi: With the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) officials and former Chief Justice R.M. Lodha making their displeasure known after the Committee of Administrators (CoA)

Asked the coach and captain to decide on travel schedules of WAGs, the next thing you hear is a senior player had flouted the 'family clause' during the World Cup. Board officials can't believe that there is discord over the schedule of WAGs.

Speaking to IANS, a senior board official said that if the stories on the rift in the team weren't bad enough, to now see stories over someone's family travelling and their schedule shows the current state of affairs in the board and how it needs immediate addressing.

"When things are mismanaged and authority and administration give way to fanboy decision-making -- a quest for popular opinion and personal favours -- the result can be disastrous.

"Fighting over travel of WAGs? Such a situation hasn't arisen in the history of the BCCI where now there appears to be a general state of discord and even the families of players are seen as fair game for criticism via different agents as has been reported.
