Pakistan left-arm spinner Raza Hasan has been banned from all forms of cricket for two years after testing positive for a prohibited substance.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) conducted doping tests on players during the Pentangular one-day cup 2015 in Karachi and Hasan’s sample came back positive after it was analysed at a World Anti-Doping Agency accredited laboratory.
“During the period of ineligibility, he will not be entitled to participate in any capacity, in any cricket match or activity (other than authorised anti-doping education or rehabilitation programmes) authorised or organised by the PCB,” a PCB release said.
The PCB notified Hasan about the results on March 24, but the 22-year-old opted against requesting a hearing despite having 14 days to do so.
