There are two age categories associated with the BCCI – the U-16, which is the formal entry level for cricketers, and the U-19.

Men averaged /mile, while women were 77 seconds slower, with /mile.
A player can play in U-19 world cup only once, a player who comes into BCCI fold at U-19 level can only play two years in that age-category tournaments, and need to produce at least three documents as age proof, and those who enter at U-16 level need to undergo a bone age determination test.
