BENGALURU: In a bid to verify the age fraud menace the BCCI has revamped the system. Among the many main modifications for the forthcoming season is a voluntary disclosure scheme which will probably be in impact for the subsequent six weeks.

SHORTER U-19 CAREERS
The TW3 bone take a look at has for lengthy been one of many key yardsticks to find out age. However it has been confirmed that it isn’t foolproof.
Previously, gamers clearing TW3 bone exams on the U-16 degree might take part in U-19 tournaments for a most of 4 years. However based on the brand new guidelines, all such gamers, if their start certificates is registered after greater than two years of start, will probably be permitted solely two years of U-19 cricket.
Gamers making a direct entry on the U-19 degree face two situations: these whose start certificates is registered inside two years of start are allowed to play for a most of two years within the age class. These whose fail to satisfy the start certificates stipulation will get to play for just one 12 months within the age group.
The 4 seasons clause will proceed to use for gamers who enter the system on the U-16 degree, clear the TW3 take a look at and possess start certificates which is registered inside two years. The one tweak in guidelines for such gamers is: earlier, the variety of seasons performed was counted provided that they made it to the enjoying XI, now, as soon as the participant makes it to the XI, he can solely take part within the ensuing three seasons.
CHANGE IN U-16 RULES
Previously, all gamers underneath the age of 16 might take part within the U-16 match, however going ahead, solely gamers between the age of 14-16 will probably be eligible to take part in BCCI tournaments.
NO AMNESTY FOR DOMICILE FRAUDS
With the variety of groups growing, particularly amongst Union territories and newer state groups, the problem of domicile fraud has been rampant for the previous few years. The domicile rule is relevant when a participant just isn’t a resident of the state by start or hasn’t resided there for a minimal interval of two years. If gamers are discovered to have solid paperwork, they face a two-year ban and the voluntary disclosure scheme just isn’t relevant for them. Additionally, visitor gamers will probably be allowed solely within the senior women and men classes.
