Wives on tour, private train coach, bananas on Kohli's WC wishlist


ANI Cricket
According to sources, Indian skipper Virat Kohli has put forward a number of demands during a meeting with the Committee of Administrators (CoA) in Hyderabad, which includes permission for wives to accompany players for the full overseas tour, a reserved train coach during the World Cup in England, a hotel with proper gymnasium, and bananas.
Apparently, the England Cricket Board (ECB) did not provide the team with bananas during their recently-concluded cricketing tour to the country.
However, sources informed that no decision has been finalised on the matter so far, and added that the recommendation process is underway.
Earlier, Kohli had put forth a request before the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to allow wives of players to extend their stay on overseas tour.
CoA member Diana Edulji, while responding to the same, had stated that "more opinions will be taken" in the matter and it might "take some more time."
This year, the BCCI had announced that wives and girlfriends of cricketers will be allowed to stay with their partners only for a duration of two weeks while the team is touring overseas.
