Pakistan cricketer Shehzad fails dope test

Cricketer Ahmed Shehzad has tested positive for a banned substance.

The PCB has confirmed that opening batsman Ahmed Shehzad is the player who tested positive in a recent dope test. Shehzad has been issued a notice of charge.

The PCB made the announcement on social media, stating it had received the report from the Independent Review Board on Tuesday. The PCB tweeted confirmation of the failed test but said, according to ICC rules, it could not name the player until the result was backed up by Pakistan's anti-doping agency.

Once he receives the charge sheet Shehzad will be suspended, however if his B sample came back negative that suspension would be immediately lifted.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan Cricket Board had revealed earlier that a player is tested positive for the doping test.

PCB had posted in June, "A player has reportedly tested positive for a prohibited substance". The report from India arrived yesterday, confirming results of the previous test. But under ICC rules PCB can not name the player or charge-sheet him until the chemical report is confirmed by the Anti-Dope Agency of the government. We should have an answer in a day or two.

Shehzad lost his Test place following Pakistan s tour to the West Indies in mid-2017 and has not played a one day worldwide since last October.

He was also not part of the one-day global squad which will play a five-match series against Zimbabwe starting Friday.

However, Shehzad was part of the Pakistan squad that won the two-match T20I series against Scotland.
