ICC sets minimum age limit to play int’l cricket

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has established a minimum age policy for players to play international cricket.

Players must now be at least 15 years of age for safeguard, according to it.

“To play in any form of men’s, women’s or U19 international cricketers must now be a minimum age of 15,” the ICC said in a release.

“In case of exceptional circumstances, a Member Board could apply to the ICC to allow a player under the age of 15 to play for them. This could include where the player’s playing experience and mental development and well-being demonstrates that they would be capable of coping with the demands of international cricket,” the ICC said.
