According to the latest update on the official website of the BCCI, it has been reported that the banned cricketers are now eligible to play inter-club matches during the second year of their ban.

After much deliberation, the Committee of Administrators (CoA) came up with the decision following a meeting in New Delhi on June 29.

"CoA approved the revision in the age fraud policy"

"After some discussion, the CoA approved the revision in the age fraud policy to the extent of state associations permitting participation in club matches/tournaments in the second year of the two-year ban," the minutes on the BCCI's website mentioned.

Rasikh breather

Rasikh Salam was recently banned for 2 years

Jammu and Kashmir cricketer Rasikh Salam was recently banned for two years by the BCCI following a case of age fraud.

He had earlier played for Mumbai Indians (MI) in a match during IPL 2019.

However, the new policy would now allow him to play the BCCI recognized inter-club cricket matches from 2020.

Author's take

Relaxation of age fraud policy a welcome news by BCCI

Relaxation of age fraud policy a welcome news by BCCI

While age fraud is a serious crime in the field of sport, the ban itself is enough from depriving him of playing and competing in the premier tournaments.

However, banning the player entirely would do him/her no good.

Thus, the author firmly stands with the new policy, relaxing the player's ban and allowing him to compete in inter-club matches, keeping his/her dream alive.
