Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah has been banned for 3 months after finding him guilty for a failed dope test previous year, the International Cricket Council (ICC) stated on Sunday.
“Shah has been suspended from entire cricket-related tasks for 3 months after pleading guilty to violating Article 2.1 of the ICC Anti-Doping Code,” stated the ICC in a release.
“Shah had given a urine sample as part of the ICC’s random in-competition testing programme after the conclusion of the 1-day international between the teams England and Pakistan in Abu Dhabi, UAE on the day of 13 November 2015.
“His sample was alternatively tested and found to consist of chlortalidone. This is categorized as a “Specified Substance” under World Anti-Doping Agency’s Prohibited List and is prohibited both in-competition and out-of-competition.”
