BCCI Can Learn From Aussies Who Won’t Let Their WAGs Banned From Venues

Updated on 9 September, 2019 at 3:32 pm By

The pounding Australia received at the hands of England at the ongoing Ashes series is, unfortunately, being blamed on the presence of  players’ Wives and Girlfriends (WAGs) at the venue.

Instead of diagnosing the performance of the players, a section of the media and former Australian players such as Ian Healy blamed the WAGs.

But defending Australia’s abysmal performance, chief selector Rodney Marsh said the presence of player’s Wives and Girlfriends (WAGs) at the venue had nothing to do with their lack of performance in Ashes 2015. He said that such a move might end up in divorces.

Australia relinquished their Ashes title after losing the series 3-1 to the host team in one of the most humiliating defeats in Australian cricketing history.

Australian captain Michael Clarke decided to call it quits from Test Cricket at the end of this series (he had earlier decided to quit One Day Cricket after winning 2015 ICC World Cup) but quickly came in defence of all the WAGs stating that calling their presence in England as distraction was “absolute garbage”.

A similar situation had arisen for our Indian cricket team late last year when the former World Champions had lost back to back series to England and Australia ahead of the much anticipated ICC World Cup 2015.

The BCCI banned WAGs from travelling Down Under for a few months. The ban was lifted midway into the World Cup.

 

While the ban was partially lifted during the Australian Series and, again, during the ICC World Cup, the BCCI has taken nothing to chance this time around and has again banned WAGs form accompanying the players in the ongoing Sri Lanka Tour which started earlier this week.

Our players meekly obliged because BCCI is like the institution of God himself. But you know the Aussies. Feisty and fierce that they are, they don’t give a damn to anyone.
