2 min read

G. ROHINI, CHIEF JUSTICE:
1. Board of Control for Cricket in India ( for short „BCCI‟) preferred
these two appeals aggrieved by the common order passed by the learned
Single Judge dated 20.12.2013 disposing of W.P.(C) Nos. 5284/2013 and
5283/2013 with the following directions:
2. The respondents herein/writ petitioners desired to participate in
Under-16 Tournaments organized by BCCI in the year 2012-2013 in
which those who are born on or after 01.09.1996 were eligible to
participate. However, in the age determination test conducted through
Tanner-White House 3 (TW3) method, the petitioner in W.P.(C)
No.5284/2013 was determined to be 16 years and 2 months as on
01.09.2012. Similarly, the petitioner in W.P.(C) No.5283/2013 was
determined as 16 years and 5 months on the said date. Though the
petitioner in W.P.(C) No.5283/2013 was held eligible to play in Under-16

Team giving him the benefit of six months, the petitioner in W.P.(C)
No.5284/2013 was held ineligible to participate. It is claimed by the writ
petitioners that as per the birth certificates issued to the writ petitioners
under the Registration of Births and Deaths Act, 1969, transfer
certificates issued by the schools where the petitioners studied as well as
the Passports, the date of birth of the petitioner in W.P.(C) No.5284/2013
is 27.02.1998 and the date of birth of the petitioner in W.P.(C)
No.5283/2013 is 03.10.1996 and thus both of them were within the age
limit prescribed and were eligible to participate in the tournament.
Therefore, assailing the action of BCCI in declaring them ineligible to
participate on the basis of the age determined by TW3 method, the
petitioners filed W.P.(C) Nos.5284/2013 and 5283/2013.
