Rasikh Salam Banned For Two Years By BCCI For Faulty Birth Certificate
Mumbai Indians and Jammu and Kashmir fast bowler Rasikh Salam has been banned by the Board of Control for Cricket in India for two years for submitting a faulty birth certificate. Hence, the young fast bowler is also removed from India’s Under-19 squad which will tour to England for a tri-series. Rasikh is replaced by Prabhat Maurya.
Rasikh Salam had become the third player from Jammu and Kashmir to play in the Indian Premier League after Manzoor Dar and Parvez Rasool. Salam made his IPL debut for the 2019 champions against Delhi Capitals.
Not the right road taken by Salam.
The right-arm pacer had gone wicketless and he conceded 42 runs in his quota of four overs. Mumbai Indians had lost that match by 37 runs.
Meanwhile, Rasikh Salam was bought for INR 20 lakhs by Mumbai Indians in the IPL auction. The young fast bowler comes from Ashmuji village in the southern part of the Kashmir.
In fact, IANS had recently reported that the youngster could be in troubled waters for his fraud age. Jammu and Kashmir State Board of School Education had informed Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association that Salam’s age doesn’t match with the record they have.
Hence, the state board and Indian board came together to impose a two-year ban on the young player.
In fact, we have seen in the past that the young players have tried to cheat with their age. India’s under-19 player Anukul Roy had also come under the scanner for the fraud age.
It is always sad to note when the young players take the wrong road to get to success. Hence, this punishment would serve good to Rasikh Salam and he would realise the same.
Salam has shown the right promise at such a young age and he had also impressed with his bowling in the domestic circuit. The youngster has thus far played two First-Class matches, two List A and six T20 in his career.
