Worry about WADA not justified: Sushil

Mumbai: Olympic bronze medallist wrestler Sushil Kumar on Wednesday asked the Indian cricketers to shrug off all apprehensions about the 'whereabout' clause of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) code and accept it without any reservation.

Sushil, who is a WADA signatory, dismissed the concerns of the cricketers related to security and their privacy.

"Why are cricketers worrying so much? The worries of cricketers about infringement of privacy and possible security threat are not justified. I am also a signatory to WADA's clauses and strictly adhere to its rules and regulations," Sushil said.

"All the sports federations and players around the world are anti-doping agency's signatories and abide by its various clauses. I never felt that they were divulging any players' personal information to anyone," he added.

Sushil believes that while cricketers of England, South Africa and Australia have already signed without complains, their Indian counterparts can also trust the WADA.

"I don't know why Indian cricketers are having so much problem with it," Sushil said.
