PCB strange condition for players for bringing wives for World Cup tour
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Cricket Board has set strange condition for players for bringing wives along for World Cup tour.
Pakistan team players who were previously not allowed to stay with their wives in the duration of the ICC World Cup will be permitted to travel with their wives after the India and Pakistan match.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) prohibited players to travel with their family members during the tournament earlier but now, relaxing their stance, they can now be allowed to be closer to their families in the United Kingdom, however, only after the team has played its biggest clash against India pun June 16 in Southampton.
However, Asif Ali and Harris Sohail are the only two players granted exception from the rule allowing them to stay with their families from the start, as the former had recently lost his two-year-old daughter to cancer while the latter sought exemption owing to personal reasons.
