  • Manjot Kalra, who scored a hundred in the final of the previous edition of U-19 World Cup, has been suspended by outgoing Delhi and District Cricket Association Ombudsman for a year from playing Ranji Trophy for an alleged age fraud during his U-16 and U-19 days.
  • The outgoing Ombudsman Justice (Retired) Badr Durrez Ahmed passed an order on his final day, preventing Kalra from playing age-group cricket for two years, but importantly, denying him a chance to play Ranji Trophy for this season.
  • Kalra, whose age as per BCCI records is 20 years 351 days, last week played for Delhi U-23 against Bengal and scored 80. He was in line to replace senior opener Shikhar Dhawan in the Ranji squad but as it now stands, he will not play any further.
