The BCCI disciplinary committee took action against Sharma for presenting multiple fake age certificates. Sharma, an all-rounder, provided a different age certificate to the Odisha cricket team compared to the one he had submitted in the 2015-16 season. Despite his involvement in Odisha’s opening game against Baroda, Sharma has been found guilty and will face consequences.

Following the age fraud of Sumit Sharma, the Odisha cricket selection committee has chosen Tarini Sa as his replacement in the squad that has traveled to Vadodara for a match against Baroda at the Moti Bagh Stadium.

The secretary of Odisha Cricket Association, Sanjay Behera explained the development Stating that:

“Sumit Sharma, a player of Odisha Senior Men’s Team, has been disqualified by the BCCI to play in the BCCI Domestic Tournaments for 2 years as he has produced multiple age certificates. The certificates produced by him when he played at the junior level in the year 2015-16 do not match with the ones he produced for the current season”

The BCCI maintains a firm position on age-fraud incidents within its domestic circuit, leading to the imposition of bans on players involved. Numerous past cases have compelled the Board to take stringent measures in addressing and deterring such fraudulent practices.
