Australia great Shane Warne has come up with a revelation as he recently said that Munaf Patel faked his age for Indian Premier League (IPL). Warne was in the commentary box as England took on Sri Lanka for the first One-Day International (ODI) of the five-match ODI series at Trent Bridge, Nottingham when he revealed that during the time he played for IPL franchise Rajathan Royals (RR), Munaf himself confessed to him that his real age is not provided in his profile and that it is forged.

During his commentary, Warne said that when he asked Munaf his age, the Indian bowler asked him back if he wants to know his real age or IPL age. On asking further, Munaf said his real age was 35 while his IPL age was 29. Warne’s quotes put serious blames against Munaf of forging his age and proving himself to be six years younger than his actual age.

Playing in IPL for Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians, the bowler has bagged 73 wickets from 61 matches and if the claims be proven, the bowler might have to face serious consequences for the offense he committed.
