Shehzad’s doping test result to be out this week

LONDON: Pakistani opener Ahmed Shehzad’s fate over a positive dope test is likely to be known this week, with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) hoping to receive the final report in the coming days.

A source in the PCB said that due to the sensitivity of the issue, the tests reports were sent to India for a re-check which caused the delay.

“Pakistan government’s anti-doping agency review board wanted to be very careful and double check because a senior player was involved, hence it asked an Indian lab to re-check tests,” the source said. “This [getting tests re-checked from India] took several weeks,” he added.
