The Pakistan Cricket Board is to conduct dope tests of players that are specifically doing extraordinarily well in the ongoing Pakistan Cup.
The PCB has decided to conduct these dope tests as per the directives of the International Cricket Council to check against any possible use of banned substances.
A PCB official revealed that there are dope tests conducted of other players as well other than Mohammad Irfan, Mohammad Sami, Khurram Manzoor, Sami Aslam, Bilawal Bhatti and Mohammad Hassan.
