Sania recently hit the headlines after she opposed the rule of wives and girlfriends not being allowed during cricket tours. She also opposed the point that boys are distracted if their wives and girlfriends accompany them on the tour. "Many times, including our cricket team and in many teams, I have seen that wives or girlfriends are not allowed on tour because the boys will be distracted. What does that mean? What is it that the women are doing that is going to distract the men so much?" Mirza had questioned during an Economic Summit in Mumbai.
