As under-19 Mumbai skipper Harmeet Singh Baddhan uncorked the champagne to celebrate the team's title-win in the Cooch Behar Trophy on Tuesday, a few senior BCCI officials had worried looks on their faces contemplating over the future repercussions if the under-aged players went on to take a sip of the drink.
