London:A player with English county Warwickshire is to appear before an England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) disciplinary panel next after failing a random drugs test.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) would not confirm the identity of the player, named by The Daily Telegraph as 21-year-old England 'A' all-rounder Graham Wagg.

The Telegraph said a recreational drug was involved, rather than a performance-enhancing substance.

If found guilty, the player faces a lengthy ban along the lines of the 18-month suspension handed to Ed Giddins, who tested positive for cocaine in 1996.
