According to the reports, there will also be restrictions on the stay of players' wives during the international cricket series.

Team India's vice-captain Virat Kohli came under severe criticism after he took along his girlfriend and Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma on the England but failed miserably in the Test series.

Other than Kohli, Gautam Gambhir, Cheteshwar Pujara, Murali Vijay, R Ashwin and Stuart Binny were also granted permission to bring their wives along on the England tour.

Earlier, cracking the whip following India's shambolic Test series against England, the BCCI virtually sidelined coach Duncan Fletcher by appointing former captain Ravi Shastri as the Team director while giving a "break" to bowling coach Joe Dawes and fielding coach Trevor Penny for the upcoming one-day series.

The BCCI also appointed former players Sanjay Bangar and Bharat Arun as assistant coaches and R Sridhar as the fielding coach as it revamped the team management.
     
While Fletcher will continue as the head coach of the team, the shake-up is a clear indication that his wings will be clipped with Shastri taking over as the Director for the one-day series beginning from August 25.
      
The former cricketers had also questioned the leadership abilities of captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni who has a poor track record in overseas conditions. The BCCI, however, has not disturbed Dhoni for the time being.
     
Under Fletcher, India have now lost 13 Tests outside the sub-continent with seven in England, four in Australia, one each in New Zealand and South Africa.
