16 players are taken for an overseas tour for which home board pays and arranges everything. if visitors want to carry extra player, they need to pay themselves. but this isn't the end of the story. Some cricket boards are smarter and plan far forward. Last time England traveled to Australia for Ashes series, they had intentionally scheduled an England A (known as "England lions") tour to face Australia A till the second test match, making sure replacement is just a few hours away.
