That trend is almost over.. Its a law now to register birth and you cannot get anything done these days without birth certifate and National ID. And its not that easy to get a fake National ID. You can't even get a SIM card with your passport, they want your national IDs. And also for cricketers, especially for any cricketers thats for age based team, BCB does do the bone sampling for age accuracy. That started many years ago, probably after the soccers Dana Cup/Gothia Cup world victory!!
