Anti-Doping Tribunal Set To Deliver Verdict On Andre Russell On January 31 

Anti-Doping Tribunal Set To Deliver Verdict On Andre Russell On January 31

West Indies all-rounder is all set to learn his fate on the long-standing doping case as the anti-doping tribunal hearing will deliver its verdict on 31st of this month.

The independent tribunal is investigating over Russell’s alleged whereabouts-clause violations. In March last year, the Jamaica Anti-doping Commission (JADCO) accused the 28-year old of violating the whereabouts-clause by claiming that the player had failed to file his whereabouts on three occasions in 2015- January 1, July 1 and July 25 despite being reminded through several means.

Russell tried to defend himself by saying he did not know how to file the whereabouts, and said he had given the responsibility to his agent and travel agents to take care of the whereabouts since he was busy playing cricket.

As per the rules of World Anti-doping Agency (WADA), if an athlete fails to file their whereabouts thrice in twelve months, it equals to one failed doping test.  And if Russell is found guilty, he could face a ban of two years.

Meanwhile, the delay in the verdict is affecting not only the player but also on the various franchisees he plays for. The independent tribunal was due to deliver the verdict last month but failed to do so for an undisclosed reason. One of the finest T20 players in the world right now, in July had said that the allegations were stressing and depressing.
