WT20: Viru, Bhajji undergo dope test

Colombo, Sep 26: Indian cricketers Virender Sehwag, Harbhajan Singh and R Ashwin underwent a dope test ahead of their Super Eight clash against Australia at Colombo on Tuesday.

Since International Cricket Council (ICC) has also adapted the World Anti-Doping Agency's (WADA) rule, it has made dope tests compulsory for all cricketers.

Indian cricketers underwent a dope test on Tuesday during their practice session at Colombo.

India's World Cup hero Yuvraj Singh, who returned to the national T20 side after battling cancer, also questioned the number of doping tests a player is subjected to, as they have already undergone many tests.

"How many times will we have to undergo a dope test?" said Singh.

India playing Australia in their first Group 2 Super Eights clash, look forward to extend their ddominance, as they thrashed Afghanistan and England in the group stage.

With two strong teams, and serious contenders practising hard for their upcoming Super Eight clash on Friday at R Premadasa Stadium, it would be an interesting encounter.
