3 months suspension for Pakistani leg spinner



The ICC suspended Pakistan leg spinner Yasir Shah for three months after he tested positive for a banned substance. Shah was tested during the ODIs between Pakistan and England in the UAE in November. The ICC then provisionally suspended him in December when the result showed that his sample contained the banned substance chlortalidone. The ICC said in a statement Shah has “admitted the violation and three-month suspension has been imposed.” The ban starts from December 27, 2015, the day Shah was provisionally suspended. It means Shah will not be eligible for selection for next month’s World Twenty20 in India.
