J&K Cricket Association (JKCA) is floating its own rules and that of BCCI as it has allowed the ‘age fraud’ players in the Under-23 women cricket selection trials at Jammu.

The selection trials for selecting J&K One-Day team for women’s Under-23 tournament is going on in Jammu. Apart from other players, JKCA in the trials has allowed those cricketers who had been previously sidelined owing to proven ‘age frauds’.

As per current BCCI ruling, players found to have indulged in age frauds have to be banned for two years. But here in our State , JKCSA has allo90wed those players to join team after being sidelined for only one tournament.

“It is proven and they were sidelined or we can say banned by JKCA. Now on what grounds JKCA has turned away bans is not known yet as they have been allowed to take part in trials. It seems JKCA had not sent their records to BCCI and have indulged in violation of rules internally at its own office,” said a cricketer.
