BCCI bans Mumbai Indians pacer Rasikh Salam for age fudging

Rasikh Salam had recently become the youngest player to feature in Indian Premier League when he made his IPL debut for Mumbai Indians earlier this year.

Prabhat Maurya has replaced Rasikh Salam in the India U19 squad after the BCCI on Wednesday banned the latter for two years for allegedly submitting a faulty birth certificate.

The All-India Junior Selection committee named Maurya as a replacement for Salam in the squad that is set to play a One-Day Tri-series in England, beginning July 21.

BCCI in a statement said, “Rasikh Salam has been banned by the BCCI for two years following a discrepancy – submission of faulty birth certificate to BCCI.”

Following is the revised India U19 squad:

Priyam Garg (c), Yashasvi Jaiswal, Thakur Tilak Verma, Divyansh Saxena, Shaswat Rawat, Dhruv Chand Jurel (wk), Shubhang Hegde, Ravi Bishnoi, Vidyadhar Patil, Sushant Mishra, Prabhat Maurya, Sameer Rizvi, Pragnesh Kanpillewar, Kamran Iqbal, Priyesh Patel (WK), Karan Lal, Purnank Tyagi, Anshul Khamboj.
