The BCCI has verbally assured Indian cricketers that their wives and kids can accompany them for upcoming tour of Australia for two-and-half months.The BCCI was earlier not sure to allow the family members due to quarantine restrictions in Australia but reconsidered it after the concerns were raised by a few senior players.
