The BCCI's doctors committee verified the age of 52 cricketers in the Under-16 category but only 19 passed the test, while 33 others were found to be overaged, Convenor of the Tournament Committee Asim Kumar Singh said.
The Tournament Committee yesterday at its meeting wanted to suspend the cricketers for five years, but reduced it to two years considering their career, Singh, who is also the Assistant Secretary of JSCA, said.
The cricketers had been warned many times to produce the right age certificate, but they did not pay any heed to the directive.
Singh said BCCI has recognized certain hospitals in each state to verify the age of cricketers, who are playing in the tournaments organized by BCCI or its affiliated associations.
