KARACHI: Pakistan batsman Ahmed Shehzad is set to be suspended and charge sheeted by the Pakistan Cricket Board after an independent review confirmed that he tested positive for a banned substance.

The PCB tweeted on Tuesday that it will issue a charge sheet to the opener today, after an independent review board report confirmed that Shehzad tested positive for a banned substance. 


Earlier, the tests reports were sent to India for a re-check which caused a delay.

“Pakistan government’s anti-doping agency review board wanted to be very careful and double check because a senior player was involved, hence it asked an Indian lab to re-check tests,” a PCB source said.

The PCB last month confirmed, without naming anyone, that a player had failed the dope test conducted during a domestic tournament.

“A player has reportedly tested positive for a prohibited substance. But under ICC rules PCB cannot name the player or charge-sheet him until the chemical report is CONFIRMED by the Anti-Dope Agency of the government. We should have an answer in a day or two,” PCB had tweeted on June 20.
