T20’s popularity might give rise to doping says ICC’s chief
Dubai: ICC’s chief has warned that T20’s popularity has also given rise to the threats of doping in cricketers.
The chief executive David Richardson says “We are ready to combat such a situation, short format sport is much faster and more demanding requiring players to go for big hits and ensure quick recovery from injuries which gives way to doping in our game.”
He said we are ensuring to implement regular testing programs both at the international and domestic level. David Richardson further said “We have a danger of ‘fixing’ in cricket and our Anti-corruption Unit (ACU) is very active to handle such issues.”
