Gulfnews: IPL players to get surprise drug tests

Why? Here is why...
Quote:
A World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) team yesterday conducted random dope tests on players participating in the Indian Premier League (IPL), following news that controversial Pakistani pace bowler Shoaib Akhtar was discovered to have an inordinately large supply of syringes in his baggage while boarding a flight from Pakistan to India.
Quote:
In 2006, Akhtar was banned, along with teammate Mohammad Asif, after testing positive for the performance-enhancing drug nandrolone during the Champions Trophy.
Quote:
Akhtar had pulled out of the ICC World Cup 2007 due to injury, but it was suspected that the real reason was that there were traces of nandrolone in his system.
Quote:
Akhtar was caught with 36 syringes at the Karachi airport while boarding a flight on his way to India. When quizzed by customs officials, Akhtar said he needed the syringes because he was a diabetic.
But, DNA - Sport - Shoaib is no diabetic: PCB - Daily News & Analysis
Quote:
Contrary to Shoaib Akhtar’s reported claim that the syringes recovered from his luggage by customs officials were meant to inject himself with insulin, Pakistan Cricket Board officials in Lahore say the fast bowler, rather than being diabetic, is infamous for being a druggie who had been using cocaine and performance-enhancing drugs to boost his bowling speed.
Quote:
another senior PCB official, who requested not to be named, said Shoaib had been using performance-enhancing drugs, cocaine, and cannabis for almost four years now and was banned on the same charges in November 2006 from playing international and domestic cricket after failing a drugs test. He pointed out that Shoaib never took this plea during the hearing of the doping charges against him by a three-member tribunal. “Had he been diabetic, he would have informed the tribunal of his ailment at that time,” he added.
Quote:
The PCB official added that a friend of Shoaib had once told him that cocaine is popular among fast bowlers, including the Rawalpindi Express, because of its effectiveness as a short-term energy booster.
As usual, his buddy SRK, who owns Akhtar's team, the Kolkata Knight Riders, said they were considering legal action against the Pakistani media.

DC v MI

Adam Gilchrist has won the toss and the Deccan Chargers will field.

My bet is on DC.

Not sure. If they lose a couple of wickets in beginning, then the pressure will start to build and then they can lose. Shaun is not playing due to injury. But still I guess MI has good chance. If MI wins, then they have to win another 3 out of 4 matches to make it to semis.

Thumbs down

Dravid is not only a batsman but a captain & team selector too. Whatever his batting skills, he must be complimented for his convincing skills - he convinced his owner to put money to select the most ill suited team in the game's history . All just to propagate his idea to spread the greatness of test cricket - he has done with missionary zeal.

When other captains are turning their team into gold, Dravid has turned his team into a dysfunctional outfit - can't bat, can't bowl and can't field.

Finally, his batting is splendid, but only when the opposition is already convinced of a win !!!

Story of Dravid: Dravid hits the last ball of the match for six, but his team lose by 65 runs.

He thought he can do a Sehwag !! Probably there must be a disclaimer: This is done by professional - don't try it.

BTW, good show by Jayasuriya to beat Sehwag's record of 19 sixes in IPL .
Jayasuriya has 20. Well, Jayasuriya can hold that record till Monday evening - then Sehwag takes on RCB
