Age fraud: Talking Turkey with Kanthi skims the surface to unearth more skeletons in the closet

Age-fraud in sports is a rampant practice, which has reached a menacing state. Even at the highest competitive level in international sports, fudging of age by athletes is a regular practice. A recent revelation by Shahid Afridi, former Pakistan cricket captain, about his age being misquoted throughout his playing years, shocked the entire world. However, is Afridi’s case just a one-off incident or are there are countless sportspersons who might have also toyed with their actual age to gain an advantage?

Talking Turkey with Kanthi dedicated an episode to suss out if there are more skeletons in the closet. Age fraud, while it provides an advantageous ground to the perpetrator, it also denies a deserving athlete his or her opportunity to achieve success. It is one of the most abominable act an athlete could indulge in apart from doping.
