The Pakistan cricket team is not new to controversies reaching to a wide range from Drug abuse to violence against a team mate. Raza Hasan was one such youngster who failed a doping test in a domestic cricket event in January this year.

Hasan who is 22 was banned for 2 years from international cricket after testing positive. But on Saturday he has challenged the 2 year ban imposed on him by the PCB. He explained that he was never given a chance to defend himself.

The PCB did not say anything about the Drug in question but the media reported that he was banned for the use of Cocaine. However, Hasan said in a meeting with the reporters, that he has filed an appeal against the ban. He also added that he believes the ban to be illegal as he was never given a chance to express his point of view. He appealed to the PCB to appoint a Tribunal to hear his view and to give him another chance at restarting his career.



The PCB earlier announced that Hasan who failed the test was banned from participating in any form cricket or sporting events organized by the board. He had he exception of rehabilitation programmes or anti-drug education events. However, the term was later reduced to 2 years.

Hasan who played one ODI for Pakistan in 2014 played the T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka in 2012. He has played 11 T20 matches for his nation. He was confident of making a comeback into the national team as he said that he will fight the ban as long as he can and that he has not done anything illegal.

Hasan after the World Cup was tipped off as a great prospect for Pakistan in the future but will now have to fight his way back into the team which may not be easy after the incident.
