Pakistan opener Ahmed Shehzad tested positive for a dope test, Geo News reported on Wednesday.
Shehzad can face a ban of at least three months from international cricket for violating the anti-doping laws. The opener, however, reserves the option to give second sample test.
It is learned that the PCB has decided to not consider Shehzad for selection for the upcoming tour. Meanwhile, Muhammad Hafeez and Shan Masood have become strong contenders for the opening slot.
Later, a PCB spokesperson confirmed that one of its players has been tested positive but added that it can’t reveal the name of the player till the verification of the test reports as per the ICC rules.
