Kolkata: After being found guilty of fudging age, two cricket coaching centres run by former India captain Sourav Ganguly and former Bengal skipper Sambaran Banerjee were among 13 which were banned by the Cricket Association of Bengal for one year on Thursday.
Cracking down on the menace of age fudging prevalent in age group cricket, the CAB, at its cricket committee meeting, also decided to ban 42 players for two years.
"Next time, we will be stricter. A coaching centre will be banned for life time, while a player for 10 years to take part in any CAB organised tournament if found guilty of age fudging. We want to set a precedent to curb the menace," CAB joint secretary Subir Ganguly said.
