Default Birthday boys

The 'On this day' section on the main page will have its two longest birthday lists today and tomorrow. Four Bangladesh cricketers have their date of birth as December 31 and seven have January 1. This is against only three DoBs in whole of May and four each in April and August.

Why do so many people have their January 1 as their date of birth ? Is there any practice (while enrolling children in schools, for eg) of using it as the default DoB if the exact date is not known ?

Yeah. It's the most preferred choice for your fake DoB if you don't know your actual DoB.

^^^ I wonder how many of our players (and Bangladeshis as a whole) know their correct birthdates!?

Ha ha. Well, if your parents are responsible, there's no reason not to know your date of birth.

Woah! Why would someone create so many accounts? There'll be a lot of birthdays tomorrow. People enjoy writing Jan 1 as their dob. Cough cough.

Al-amin became the 8th Bangladeshi player born on January 1

He shares his DoB (1-1-1990) with Rubel.
