Afridi undergoes dope test

London: International Cricket Council (ICC) officials have conducted a surprise dope test on Shahid Afridi, who was declared player of the match in the finals of the Twenty20 World Cup against Sri Lanka at Lords on Sunday.

Dope tests are part of the ICC routine to keep a check on the usage of performance enhancing drugs.

The ICC can call any player to undergo the test procedure.
