Pakistani Spinner Banned For Two Years

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has banned spinner Raza Hasan on Monday after he tested positive in anti-doping test conducted by the PCB in January.

The urine sample of Hasan was collected during the Pentangular Cup held in Karachi. According to an announcement by the PCB, the 22-year-old had been give time of 14 days to appear for the hearing. Hasan did not turn up for the hearing and was subsequently suspended for two years.

The banned substance was not named by the PCB but according to Pakistani media, the spinner was under investigation for using cocaine.

A PCB news release said under the Pakistan Cricket Board’s Anti-Doping Rules PCB conducted in-competition dope testing through an independent collecting agency during the Pentangular Cup held at Karachi and added that the agency also collected the urine sample of Raza Hasan during the match played on Jan 7. It was further remarked that the sample was forwarded to a WADA-accredited laboratory for analysis which, vide its Analytical Report, gave an Adverse Analytical finding for the presence of a Prohibited Substance.

The PCB release also disclosed that Raza Hasan was issued a Notice of Charge by PCB on March 24 which he received in person, and as per Anti-Doping Rules he was to send a written request for hearing within 14 days which he failed to do so and therefore in accordance with the Anti-Doping Rules and with the approval of the competent authority, Raza Hasan is being imposed with a ban that will make him ineligible to participate in the sport of cricket for a period of two years. According to the release, Hasan will not be entitled to participate in any capacity, in any cricket match or activity authorized or organized by the PCB during the period of ineligibility, except for approved anti-doping education or rehabilitation programs.

Hasan featured in a one-off Twenty20 international against Australia in Dubai in December before he made his one-day debut against the same opponents at the same venue a few days later. The 22-year old Hasan made his debut in September 2012 and has played 10 Twenty20 matches for Pakistan. He participated in the World T20 in 2012 and took three wickets in four matches at an economy of 4.93. He last played international cricket in December 2014 against New Zealand.

It is not the first time that a cricketer from Pakistan has failed a drug test. During the 2006 ICC Champions Trophy in India, Pakistan pace duo Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Asif were sent back from India after they failed anti-doping test for Nandrolone in testing conducted by the PCB. Akhtar was banned for two years and Asif received a ban of one year. The bans were later overturned on appeal.

A year later, Mohammad Asif tested positive for a banned substance during in the inaugural edition of Indian Premier League when he was a part of the Delhi Daredevils and was also detained in Dubai on a drugs possession charge. He was subsequently banned for one year from cricket.

Gambhir recommends action against dope offenders Gautam Gambhir, the prolific Indian cricketer, has expressed his concerns about the growing doping menace that has shocked sporting fraternity of the country in the last few days.

Comments of Indian opener came in wake of eight athletes testing positive for anabolic steroids in the last few days.

Doping in any sport is a concern. What is illegal is illegal. Action should be taken against any sportsperson who is found guilty of doping. Even if a cricketer is also found guilty of taking banned substances, action must be taken against him as well,” said Gambhir.

Rawalpindi Express banned for five yearsPakistan’s fast bowler, Shoaib Akhtar (also known as the Rawalpindi Express) was banned for a period of five years after repeated disciplinary breaches that could well mean an end to the controversial career of the maverick paceman.

The paceman, who was already serving a ban of two years for hitting a teammate with a bat, appeared before a disciplinary committee that charged him with publicly criticizing the country’s cricket board.

It seems that woes of Pakistan cricket team have no stopping and the team has no clues how to cope up, which is evident from the death of coach Bob Woolmer at last year’s World Cup and Inzamam-ul-Haq’s team forfeiting a Test in 2006 after being accused of ball-tampering.

international-premier-league-steroidsPakistan’s controversial fast bowler Mohammad Asif doping case will be heard on Nov. 29, according to Sky Sports.

Asif tested positive for the anabolic steroid nandrolone during the International Premier League (IPL) competition in May.

During his initial hearing with the IPL anti-doping tribunal on Oct. 11, no decision was made on his case. The tribunal will decide the sanctions to be imposed for Asif’s doping violation. The athlete could face at least a two-year ban if found guilty.

His lawyer, Shahid Karim, hopes for a quick resolution of the case.

“We have worked on legal and medical aspects of the case and hope that the tribunal will make a decision at the hearing on November 29,” Karim said.

“Evidence will be recorded during the hearing, and we will present testimony.

“It is our chance to fight the case – and we will give it our all, since this is a matter of my client’s international career.”

In October 16, 2006, Asif reportedly tested positive for nandrolone (commonly sold under the trade name Deca-Durabolin) with teammate Shoaib Akhtar.

The Pakistan Cricket Board suspended Akhtar and Asif for two years and one year, respectively. However, the bans imposed on them were overturned on December 5, 2006 upon their appeal.
