BCCI, WADA battle takes a legal twist

Mumbai: Caught in a struggle between legal aspects of enforcing controversial ' WADA whereabouts' clause on Indian Cricketers, the BCCI on Wednesday sought an urgent opinion from India's top most law officer, attorney general GE Vahanvati.

The BCCI will now give a legal twist to the whole episode claiming the 'whereabouts' clause is an infringement of the players privacy, a risk to their security and a breach of their constitutional rights to privacy under Indian law. The BCCI also intends to get the opinion from Chief Justice regarding the controversial 'whereabouts' clause.

The International Registered Testing Pool (IRTP) Working Group of the ICC will convene on September 5 and 6 to address Indian cricketers outstanding practical issues related to the 'whereabouts' clause of the WADA anti-doping code.

It is learned that BCCI will take a final decision on WADA only after this meeting.
