India's national selectors will no longer enjoy a "free ride" to watch the team play overseas, the Board of Control for Cricket in India has revealed.

India's national selectors will no longer enjoy a "free ride" to watch the team play overseas, the Board of Control for Cricket in India has revealed.

In the past selectors used to accompany squads during their trips abroad, but BCCI's vice-president Ravi Savantbut has revealed that is coming to an end.

"I think now these national selectors will not be travelling out of country," he said. "Those days the selectors also used to travel out of country if the team is on tour… yes, it's the Board's policy that they will not be sent out with the Indian team," Savant told reporters.

The move comes after Sandeep Patil was re-instated as chief national selector nearly a year after he quit the post as he was unable to watch domestic cricket due to his heavy schedule with the Indian squad.
