PCB to issue Ahmed Shehzad the charge sheet today in doping probe


Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will issue the charge sheet to the opening batsman Ahmed Shehzad in doping probe as the Independent Review Board report suggested the use of banned substance.

PCB announced on Tuesday via their official Twitter account that Ahmed Shehzad has been tested positive for using a banned substance.

“Independent Review Board Report on doping case has been received by PCB,” the tweet read. “Cricketer Ahmad Shahzad has tested positive for a banned substance. PCB will issue charge sheet today,” it added.

Shehzad, who is currently out of the team, was tested during Pakistan Cup ahead of the Scotland series.

On June 20, PCB issued a statement via Twitter that a player has been tested positive for a prohibited substance, though the name of the player was not revealed then.

The man, who has played 13 Tests, 82 ODIs and 57 T20Is for Pakistan, can face a suspension from the board, however, he will be given an opportunity to defend himself before being penalized.
