As we all know the love for cricket in India is just next level and it is just a bit shy of being called religion and being worshipped in the nation. Cricket is not just popular at the national level it is popular from the ground up and the fundamental units of society in India.
Cricket comes from the alleys or so called Gullys of India and there is ladder that leads to the international cricket and the national cricket with a number of steps to climb and a number of obstacles to overcome. The start is from alleys then to the school tournaments to the state level of Ranji which is quite famous and then the national level. And the aspiration to become a cricket star has led to some lying about their ages to get in the test tournaments of the nation which are a rage at the local level and people follow it and even the selectors for the Under 19 teams. Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) has decided to introduce bone tests at the interschool level to determine the right age of a player. This is a historic decision and I think is the first time this will be used on such a small level not only in India but all over the world.
This will change the cricket scene and the correct age participants will only be allowed as there have been reported that people having been dubbing documents to get early entry or even late entry for the old players who come late to the cricket scene.
