PCB extends Shehzad's ban by an additional six weeks

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) extended Ahmed Shehzad’s ban by an additional six weeks for violating PCB’s anti-doping rules.

The opening batsman was issued a show-cause notice last month for taking part in club cricket. He was serving a four-month ban after failing a doping test in June this year while playing a domestic match.

The ban was backdated and he was advised to stay away from all forms of cricket, even been denied a central contract.

According to PCB, the 26-year-old accepted that he committed the violations but had no intention to cheat or enhance his performance.

Shehzad’s new suspension period will start from Nov 11.

The 26-years-old represented Pakistan in 13 Tests, 81 ODIs and 57 T20Is.
