Andre Russell, West Indies, ICC World T20 2016
Andre Russell might face a ban of up-to two years if found guilty in anti-doping case.

Alleged to have missed three dope tests between January to July last year, West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell might just face a ban up to two years from International cricket if found guilty in the last anti-doping hearing in the Kingston court on Thursday.

The hearing is important because if an athlete misses three tests in a year, he/she could be suspended under the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) code, which amounts to a failed dope test.

The Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO), who filed the case against Russell in March this year, will be presenting their written submissions to the three-member anti-doping disciplinary tribunal, who will determine whether Russell was guilty of violating WADA’s whereabouts clause or not.

Carey Brown, the executive director of JADCO has claimed to the tribunal that Russell was negligent in filing his whereabouts even after he was contacted via email, phone and letters for a reminder.

The batting all-rounder last represented West Indies during the T-20 bilateral series against India which took place in Florida.
