Cricket News : Is BCCI ‘defending’ cricketers for failing to update their whereabouts?

Claiming that the players were not at fault for failing to update their whereabouts, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), in a letter to the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA), has instead argued that there were technical issues because of which the information could not be shared. Five cricketers – Cheteshwar Pujara, Ravindra Jadeja, KL Rahul, Smriti Mandhana and Deepti Sharma – are staring at a first ‘whereabouts failure’ as per the international dope testing protocol. Three such strikes and an athlete could be suspended for up to two years for violating rules, as per the World Anti-Doping Agency guidelines. NADA director general Navin Agarwal said they are examining the cricket board’s explanation and will determine if it is satisfactory in the coming days.
