In an effort to strengthen its zero tolerance for age fraud in cricket, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday provided helpline numbers to all cricketers, team support staff and administrators of all State Cricket Associations.

The BCCI Anti-Doping & Anti-Corruption teams have been working closely to spread awareness among cricketers, team support staff and members of all associations to approach the respective cells in case of any drug queries, corrupt approaches and incidences of age and domicile fraud, it said in a statement.

The BCCI’s Anti-Doping Helpline continues to be available 24X7 for any medicine related queries by cricketers. A banner with the helpline numbers will be displayed inside dressing rooms across all venues where cricket matches will be played during the BCCI’s domestic season 2019-20.

Personnel who want to report suspicious or fraudulent activity can do so by contacting the helpline numbers. The identity of the complainant will be kept strictly confidential.
