cricfit is an unheard of site. I mean there's people out there that won't trust actual news media outlets with their rigorous standards but we are just supposed to believe some random cricket site on the net?
I found that link on the Indian cricket forum.

I would still wait till its reported on cricinfo or at least cricbuzz. This would likely be a big story if its corroborated and found to be true.

I had a full beard 6 months before my 19th birthday. Bunch of my friends had it by 16. Its quite common amongst south asians.

News about Rajvardhan Hangarekar was on cricinfo, cricbuzz everywhere, allegations ofcourse but i wont be surprised.

In the subcontinent, almost everyone has two DOBs 😂 one official and one real.

That's why I never give a damn about age group cricket.

Really, Bangladeshis do it? I thought the BD u19 kids were all genuine and it was just the Pakistanis and Afghans with the odd Indian

Yeah Bangladesh used to do it, they made efforts to stop several years back. I'm sure the odd player might do still do it. But I think for ICC events there is a medical Test involved but not sure if you can legally force someone to undergo a test merely for record keeping sake.

For example Mushfiqur Rahim [originally] made his Test debut at age 16 in 2005, meaning he should be 33 now. However, his cricinfo profile corrected his age about 10 years ago. His age is now reported as 35, meaning he was 18 on Test debut and not 16, as was reported for many years.

Mushy probably still has 5 years left in the tank I would imagine. He will probably retire from T20s after this years WC and focus on Tests and ODIs until the 2027 WC. That would be my guess.
