The Pakistan cricket team has been involved in yet another controversy regarding discipline and the attitude of the players. The PCB on May 25 announced that Raza Hasan has been banned for two years from international cricket.

The left-arm spinner Hasan failed to pass a doping test earlier this year. The Board explained that a show cause notice was issued to the player and that his failure to file an appeal in 14 days from the notice leaves the board with no other option than to ban him.

 

 

The board released a statement explaining that Raza was given the notice on May 24th this year in compliance with the anti-doping rules and Raza, who failed to file an appeal within 14 days, was all set to be banned according to the rules the statement said. Raza, who failed a random doping test taken in January in Karachi, later revealed that he took cocaine.

He has played 10 T20s and an ODI for Pakistan at the age of 22 and is now not entitled to play any form of cricket or participate in any event related to the sport. He can participate in the rehabilitation programmes within the time he is banned. Hasan now joins the list of players who failed dope tests for Pakistan after Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Asif.
