Former England spinner Graeme Swann shockingly accused Pakistan all-rounder Shoaib Malik of lying about his age during the 2017 Champions Trophy.
Age-fudging is a topic that has been thrust into the spotlight as of late after Manjot Kalra, a member of India’s Under-19 World Cup team in 2018, was banned for two years for the offence.
Two more players – Nitish Rana and Shivam Mavi – are currently being investigated.
With the issue having come to light, it should be remembered that Swann targeted Malik and accused him of age-fudging at the Champions Trophy.
