The Men in Blue ended their World Cup 2019 campaign by losing the semi-final of the tournament against New Zealand by 18 runs. It is said that a senior player from the team is taken under scanner for the violation of the BCCI’s family clause, allowing the wife to stay for the entire period of the tournament. The player requested for his wife to stay with him extending the permissible period of 15 days, however, it was denied by the Committee of Administrators (CoA).

However, as per the documents in possession by the PTI, on May 3rd, the issue was discussed but was eventually shot down by the CoA.

"Yes, the same player in question, who was categorically denied permission during May 3 meeting, violated the 15-day rule during the World Cup. The question that arises here is whether the player in question had sought permission about the extra duration of stay of his wife from the competent authorities -- in this case the coach and the captain. The answer is a 'No', was said by the official.

It is also said that several questions are raised on the administrative manager, Sunil Subramaniam on his lack of denying the arrangement as it was his domain. A senior BCCI official said that Sunil’s job is to not monitor the team’s training sessions as the coach, captain and other staff are there for those arrangements. He also mentioned that hopefully, the CoA will take cognisance of the matter and seek a report from the manager.
